Sunday afternoon the Democratic Party’s official social media accounts unveiled a series of graphics.

These Republicans can’t hide from who they are — but when they play the Game of Votes, they'll either say or do anything to win.

Posted by Democratic Party on Sunday, April 12, 2015

A total of eight graphics were posted on both Facebook and Twitter. Each graphic was meant to be jab at a Republican presidential hopeful.


house bush

We have no idea what this is supposed to mean.

house paul

Ah yes, the shutdown.

house cruz

But Bridgegate!

house christie

Yeah, we’re lost here, too.

house jindal

Giggled at this one and would totally wear the t-shirt.

house perry

Admittedly, when I saw the first few graphics, I was a little puzzled as to why each graphic said ‘House.’ And then I got to the Walker graphic and it was abundantly clear:

house walker

Also debuting April 12? The “Game of Thrones” season premier. The HBO hit series identifies the various families vying for the iron throne as House _______. The graphics were well timed memes of the popular series. Clever, really.

The eighth graphic taking a stab at Senator Rubio ruffled a few feathers though.

Social media was rife with outrage over the allegedly racist graphic. Whether offended parties missed the “Game of Thrones” reference is unclear.

But for this particular offense, we have to plant our flag in the ‘Let’s Save Our Outrage for Something Truly Outrageworthy’ camp. There’s certainly plenty to be upset about when it comes to the Democratic Party, but a poorly constructed social media campaign seems a waste of precious energy.
