Get Orange? Get Real.

Am I the only one who thinks the Ontario NDP’s new logo looks like an ad for a nuclear power plant?

Apparently, at this week’s Ontario NDP Convention in Toronto, the party unveiled some new modern slogans: "Fresh Ideas, New Energy" and "Get Orange."

Modern slogans? In the 2004 federal election, the federal NDP ran under the slogan “Fresh Ideas, New Energy”… hardly fresh, hardly new. In fact, we haven’t heard anything fresh or new come out of the Ontario NDP for quite some time.

As for “Get Orange”, I just don’t get it. When all the other parties are talking “green”, the NDP is talking “orange”?
