Nice work Quiller.

Of course this is better than the original idea posed by Dan. David Hasselhoff in speedos and the caption " Conservative Political Forum: Spanking Libs and eating sausages"....

Quiller, it looks great!!!!

Can you scale it down to 350x70?  And can you round out the edges?

Then it would be PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like a placard on the side of a Tank, that had been through serious battle, only to emerge as the victor, much like we will be after the mid term. 8)

Has a "chipped from granite" look to it.

A good metaphor for conservatives who aren't the sport of every passing political breeze.

Thanks again. Maybe I'll try one with bullet-holes in it, to catch that Eastwood flavor....

Anyway. For the font-freaks out there. You know who you are.

The exact font is XXII BLACKBLOCK SERIFA ERODED, and is available at MyFonts.com (my all-time favorite place to spend way too much money!).

Close-up of the font is here: http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/doubletwo/xxii-black-block/eroded/ (http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/doubletwo/xxii-black-block/eroded/)
