The 'Wisconsin is now *totally* punk' open thread.

The funny part? I wish that this wasn’t just a goof-up.

Madison — As the state agency charged with running elections, the Government Accountability Board can’t show favor for Republicans or Democrats.

But is it biased toward anarchists?

The board recently launched a new logo – an A inside a circle – that looks similar to the traditional symbol for anarchy.

As a ruthless deconstruction of the existing pseudo-countercultural, mainstreamed paradigm of the “Other” as postmodern culture hero by taking possession of iconic imagery and reinfusing it with a radical sensibility via the deliberately ironic juxtaposition of pre-rebellious concepts with the symbol of rebellion itself, it’s quite good.


So I was an English major in college. Sue me.
