    What was the point of this article? To once again show a superficial irrelevant fault with the McCain-Palin campaign. It is a stretch to give two thoughts to the design of these handmade poster. If you start buying into the capitalist and consumer based marketing schemes, you are missing the point of an election. If you are going to point out bad hand-made posters, point out the ones being used by the Obama campaign as well. Obama is smart for having a great logo designed and a functional website (McCain's site is a nightmare), but are we electing a creative director or a president? It is getting tiresome hearing one side of this election story, and for me to have to read about it on AIGA, the organization that is supposed to represent all designers, not just democrats, is unfortunate. How about an in depth article on each candidate's logo and an interview with the designers behind them. That would be some worthy reading. Not an article that rambles on about cliches and superficial design flaws.
