Why Super PAC Names Make No Sense

Former Obama aide Bill Burton explains to the New York Times Magazine that it took weeks to come up with the name Priorities USA Action for his Super PAC because "every slogan they considered had already been trademarked by Republicans."

Said Burton: "We gave our lawyer 10 more names. Then like 50. We're literally trying every combination of whatever. You can't come up with a name that has the word 'future' in it that the Republicans don't control. Romney's Restore Our Future -- that doesn't even make sense, and that's probably why they were able to get it."
