Where Have I Seen This Logo Before?

Bill Luckett has a website for his PAC Progress for Mississippi up and running. After reading it, you wouldn’t realize that Democrats had run the state exclusively for 120 years after Reconstruction, and it took another 10 years after that before a Republican held much power- but hey, that would mess up his whole message.

What caught my eye was the logo for the website:

That looks awfully similar to another logo I remember seeing this past year:

Luckett loves the president, and his policies, so much that he stole his logo!

    I mean, I get it. The Sun. The River. Optimism. The Mississippi. I know its just a logo but other than the blatant rip-off by his Washington DC consultants of Obama’s logo, if you dig into the logo you see that half of it is Arkansas and the sun doesn’t rise or set in Memphis.

    Or if you’re looking at it from the other direction, then half of it is Louisiana and the sun doesn’t rise or set in New Orleans…well, actually, there is a place in New Orleans called the Rising Sun, its been the ruin of many a poor boy, and maybe Bill Luckett is one.

    As much as I am a conservative Republican, I have to say it’s pretty good for progressive-leaning people in this state to have a new group out on the political scene. The skeptical side of me says this is basically designed to be the “pre-campaign committee” of Luckett for Governor. If those who were on the Obama bandwagon in the 08 Mississippi primary think they can form a coalition by expanding the black vote and somehow cutting into the white vote (that largely goes GOP in statewide elections) with a progressive message, then they should go ahead and try. Of course, people like Gene Taylor and Travis Childers are not getting elected on a “progressive” platform, so that will probably start as a roadblock for someone like a Bill Luckett running as an “Obama Democrat”

    I would love to see some more conservative political groups get active on the state political scene, like ones that advocate for pro-growth economic policies and education vouchers. I guess the Mississippi Center for Public Policy would be one, but I’m not sure how much they are doing. Maybe there are other such groups out there that I don’t know about.
