Logo Fever ’08
Sen. John McCain, currently in the running for the GOP nomination in the upcoming presidential election, has an unusual logo when it comes to politics.
Instead of the traditional red, white and blue motif, McCain prefers a somber white on black with orange-ish accents pointing to a military-insignia type star. This is reminiscent of the POW-MIA flag, which helps the audience remember that John McCain was indeed a prisoner of war in Vietnam. I wouldn’t have noticed this if not for a NYTimes slideshow on campaign logos by Ward Sutton. But, I noticed something else about McCain’s logo.
Maybe McCain isn’t trying to reinforce his military service at all, but rather, trying to establish commune with Americans who drink shitty beer. After all, the Senator does like to play up his Scottish-Irish heritage.
I got these images from Google image search, because I couldn’t give two shits about either of these groups. I added the color to the McCain logo based on a smaller version.
