It looks like either an upside-down burning American flag or a teardrop, neither of which would be very patriotic if a liberal used such an icon.

    Is he copying Obama’s wavy stripes?

    • tracey marie March 23rd, 2015 at 5:21 pm

      He is attempting to gain favor by stealing from the President to get support, how sad for him

    • Guy Lauten March 23rd, 2015 at 5:41 pm

      Sure looks like it, doesn’t it?
      I believe it’s all part of the dearth of original ideas on the GOPster’s side. The staffer responsible for the logo sees one that works and jumps on the bandwagon. Pushing one’s boundaries to come up with something original is just too hard for today’s nouveau frat-boys (just ask Randy “The Plagarist” Paul)!

        As is often the case, the rabid right thinks waving the flag, and thumping the bible are all that’s needed to get the gullible to donate and vote for them.

        Yes, because the “O” for Obama took so much more thought. I hate to break it to you, but Obama was far from the first to use “wavy stripes” as his campaign logo. Original ideas? How about the 10-year-old on MS Paint that came up with Hillary’s logo?

        Yeah, you’ll blast me and insult everything you don’t actually know about me merely because I’m not a liberal; whatever. If the biggest issue we have to argue against the other candidate is their campaign logo, then it doesn’t matter who is elected.

          Isn’t that what YOU are doing??

          I just think it looks a lot like Obama’s.

          Havin’ a good day, Ben? Forgot to take something this morning perhaps? Way to troll 3-week-old posts. Right at the bleedin’ edge, old Bennie.

    I think it looks like a turban–or an onion.

    Campaign slogan:

    That will inspire folks to vote for him. You’ll see.

    • Dwendt44 March 23rd, 2015 at 8:08 pm

      And his pants are on fire. Politifacts says 66% of his remarks are mostly false-pants on fire lies.

    It’s clearly a drop of Ted’s red, white, and blue blood.

      With a little Canadian Maple Syrup on the side….

      Show me the Birth Certificate!!!!!!!!

    Ok he’s not Palin stupid, but I have noticed that gop candidates take on the mentality of their constituents.
    Is it really necessary to be like that crazy neighbor who flys their american flag upside down in front of their $150,000 home in a cul de sac? Anyone else snicker at those nutbars?

    • William March 23rd, 2015 at 6:14 pm

      “Ok he’s not Palin stupid”
      Sarah and her legacy. A yardstick for stupidity.

        Boy, that’s a waste of two perfectly good toques!

    Friggin’ commie Ivy League flag burner!

      you forgot “hoser”

  7. Obewon March 23rd, 2015 at 7:53 pm

    Cruz rips off a natural gas icon and marries it with a barbers pole stripes! Startover at preschool Ted. Meanwhile Bert & Elmo have just the campaign themesong “Elmo’s got a gun”

  8. Chris March 23rd, 2015 at 8:24 pm

    I think it’s meant to show his American fervor is “on fire.”

    To me, it just shows how big a drip he is. Big Drip. It has a ring to it.

  9. Pokthecat March 23rd, 2015 at 9:57 pm

    It represents all the tears we Americans will be weeping if he should happen to win.

      The alternative I suppose is to charge a subscription fee.

    Well, it fits in with his claim about the world being on fire….
    Or is just an indication of the gaseous fumes emanating from his gaping maw.
