Your Slogan Here

Are you worried that there is insufficient public outrage over the misdeeds of presidential adviser Karl Rove? So are the folks at MoveOn, who today announced a Fire Karl Rove Slogan Contest. According to MoveOn officials, the Internet organizing group wants to create widespread anger over the president’s top adviser, but doesn’t have a good slogan with which to do it:

We want to create the sort of buzz about Karl Rove you can see when you walk down the street. That’s why we’ve launched a Fire Karl Rove Slogan Contest to figure out the slogan for a downloadable poster we’ll send to all 3.5 million MoveOn members. Suggest your best idea for a good slogan or rate the slogans of other MoveOn members. The collective ratings of MoveOn members will decide the winner. Slogan writing and rating ends at 8:00 PM Eastern on Tuesday, August 2, 2005. We’ll then have a professional graphic artist design the downloadable poster that is the right size to print on a desktop printer and e-mail to all 3.5 million MoveOn members (with credit in the e-mail to the slogan’s author). If you’re the winner, we’ll send you a framed copy of your poster in full-color.

So far, early entrants seem to be following a similar theme, including front-runners “Treason Is Not a Family Value,” “Treason is the Reason: FIRE ROVE!”, and “Treason Accomplished!”
