Every Triangle needs a third leg

Ha ha ha, how did MPS miss this one yesterday?

A group of high-profile Democrats, Republicans, and Independents today launched No Labels, a non-profit that calls itself the “Woodstock of Democracy,” touts non-partisanship, and features a bipartisan bison as its official logo.”

Oops – it seems that the super-geniuses at No Labels stole the Bison artwork from a graphic designer. But would you expect from a group of politicians and pundits like this to know anything about copyrights and trademarks:

Mayor Michael Bloomberg
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand
Congressman Bob Inglis
Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa
Congressman Tom Davis
David Brooks
Joe Scarborough
Mika Brzezinski
Senator Joe Lieberman
Senator Evan Bayh
Senator Joe Manchin
David Gergen
Governor Charlie Crist
Lt Governor Abel Maldonado
Congressman Michael Castle
Ellen Freidin

Sweet Baby Jeebus, what a collection of whiny losers. All we need now is another pundit to analyze the news and explain its significance to us, and luckily Matt Bai, wonderkind of the 800-word masturbation fantasia does not disappoint:

Third parties, at least since the advent of the Republicans in the 1850s, have generally been vehicles for making statements or for pushing the parties in an ideological direction.

How’s that for insight? I can totally see why the NYTimes gives Dude the big bucks.

(Oh, for the record, those wacky No Label won’t disclose where their money is coming from. Such brave centrists.)

(Matt Bai), TPM)

  1. It’s just another shovelful of bipartisan B[ison]S…implying some sort of equivalence between the centrist White House and Congress on one hand and the far right of the corporate media (Fox, talk radio, Regnery, etc.) on the other.

    The “No Labels” idea is totally ineffectual, and really needs to be a “No Lies” movement instead. (They can have my logo design for free, as long as I get credit for it…)

    Why won’t they divulge the funding sources? Astroturf. See if Dick Armey’s hiding in there somewhere.
