Republican candidate breaks trademark law despite warning

The Rethug-a-lugs have already proven they can't govern competently. Maybe they'd be better if they didn't think they were above the law.

John Boozman is the piece of shit who the Republicans are running as their Senate candidate in Arkansas. His campaign ads prominently feature the logo of the University of Arkansas Razorbacks - in an attempt to imply that the school's athletic teams endorsed him (which they didn't).

It turns out that the university has a policy against using its mascot in political ads. So the university warned Boozman that he needed to remove the logo from his ads, as the logo is protected by trademark law.

However, weeks later, Boozman has refused to comply with the order.

Naturally, Boozman blamed his Democratic opponent, incumbent Sen. Blanche Lincoln, for the controversy. "Blanche needs to realize that just like in football, you have to play by the rules," said an official for the Boozman campaign.

Nothing's ever a Republican's fault, is it? It wasn't Blanche Lincoln who broke the rules, idiot.

John Boozman is just another Republican with a sense of entitlement who thinks laws shouldn't apply to themselves. This is the party that has pledged to impeach President Obama if they win control of Congress, even though he hasn't done anything illegal. Yet the Republicans break laws like it's going out of style, and they think it's their birthright to be elected. They have the emotional stability of a 2-year-old.

  1. If the Republican cannot follow a very simple trademark law, people should now think on whether to vote them. I think they should review us trademarks laws 101 first.
