But there's certainly something to it. Doesn't that logo swoosh Romney's been brandishing for the past few months look a bit like a dollop of Aquafresh Toothpaste on the business end of a toothbrush?
That's the inspiration behind a Tumblr whose first entries began this morning during Romney's VP speech. It's quickly turned into a meme on the "Romney's Logo" Twitter account, whose profile reads, "I may look like toothpaste, but I bleed red, white and blue. In a tube."
There's one designer who's allegedly not impressed with the logo. Alice Twemlow, chair of the MFA Design Criticism Department at the School of Visual Arts, was quoted on the "Romney's Logo Is Toothpaste" Tumbler, "This logo is like a fake Louis Vuitton handbag."
What do you think of Romney's logo?
