The campaign arm for House Democrats on Wednesday tried out a new slogan: “I mean, have you seen the other guys?”
The sticker slogan, one of several floated as part of a fundraising effort by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), caused a stir on social media, where many wondered why the party would try out such a self-deprecating campaign line.
“Not exactly the most inspiring slogan, @dccc,” wrote ProPublica reporter Derek Willis.
“Dems are asking people to vote on a new sticker and I’m not sure anyone in history has been as bad as this,” tweeted Adam Serwer, a senior editor for The Atlantic.
