We're running out of colors

Poor Mr. Meme. First, he was Blue:


Then, after the Senate Democrats rolled over for the umpteenth time and gave a flyer to another one of King George's authoritarian sociopathic nominees (Gonzales? Roberts? Alito? It's all a blur...), we felt compelled to give Mr. M. a dye job. Green seemed logical at the time, in spite of the comments by some readers noting that he now looked like a piece of broccoli with bad dentition:


But now, this from TPM Cafe:

OK, we've done it. We've nailed it down: Every single contributor to the Pennsylvania Green Party Senate candidate is actually a conservative -- except for the candidate himself.

The Luzerne County Green Party raised $66,000 in the month of June in order to fund a voter signature drive. The Philly Inquirer reported yesterday that $40,000 came from supporters of Rick Santorum's campaign (or their housemates). Also yesterday, we confirmed that another $15,000 came from GOP donors and conservatives. Only three contributions, totaling $11,000, remained as possible legit donations.

Today, I confirmed that those came from GOP sources.

Thereby taking the concept of "Useful Idiots" to a whole new level.

As for Mr. Meme, though, I'm thinking "tie dye."

Useful idiots, indeed -- exactly what I thought when I saw the story.

Photoshopping the mascot will have to wait a while, but I agree that green is no longer the 'in' color.

Go for the rainbow - that way you wont have to change color again - although you could switch to plain old black and while.

Dear Blue,
If you ever read Spiral Dynamics, you would know your color. You were never Blue. You might have been a little Green, but I suspect that you are a yellow/green Meme.

Yrs,
JRW
