41 annoyingly ridiculous super PAC names

The new unlimited-donation political-action funds are a serious issue this election. Not that you'd know it from their easy-to-mock names...

The rise of super PACs has revolutionized the way political campaigns are financed. But "it's also sparked a wave of creativity as each PAC tries to separate itself from the rest of the pack," says Emily Heil at The Washington Post. Indeed, with more than 300 super PACs registered with the FEC (and counting), a little creativity is probably in order. Still, some super PAC names stretch the bounds of good taste — or even logic. Take Mitt Romney's pet super PAC, Restore Our Future: "Its name makes no sense at all," says BuzzFeed. "It's an actual contradiction, an inscrutable zen koan for this elections cycle." Or, as Paul Begala, an adviser for President Obama's own amorphously named Priorities USA Action, puts it: "It's like saying, 'I'm out in the garage restoring my 2020 Ford car.'" Here are 41 other (very real) super PAC names that annoy, amuse, or just plain perplex:

Insistently American When you're trying to raise money for an American election, name-checking the US of A makes sense — but you can take it too far:

1. Americans For America 2. America For Americans 3. Americans For a Better Tomorrow Today 4. Americans For a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow 5. Americans For a Better Tomorrow, Yesterday 6. My America 7. Your America 8. Putting America First 

Cloyingly sentimental Tugging on the heartstrings may be a good way to raise money, but there's a difference between sweet and saccharine: 

9. A Promise to Our Children 10. Faith Family Freedom Fund 11. American Sunrise 12. Our Destiny PAC 13. We Believe USA  14. We Love USA PAC 

Gratingly self-evident You'd be hard-pressed to find anybody who disagrees with these stated goals:

15. Parents for a Brighter Future 16. Parents Against Child Access to Pornography 17. Citizens for Prosperity and Good Government 18. People for Creating Sustainable Jobs In America 19. Americans Wanting Truth in Politics 20. Citizens Alliance for Better Candidates

Bizarrely specific On the other hand, sometimes you can appeal to too small of an audience:

21. Citizens Against the Peripheral Canal and Other Wasteful Projects 22. Committee to Elect an Effective Valley Congressman 23. Inland Empire Taxpayers for Jobs 24. Wednesday Morning Conservatives; The

Puzzlingly vague And who is the intended target audience for these super PACs? Anyone? 

25. CausePAC 26. A SuperPAC 27. Committee for a New Start in the Right Direction 28. Grow PAC 29. Internet; The 30. Rethink PAC 

Definitively canine Will the harrowing tale of Seamus, the Romneys' car-surfing Irish setter, ever die? These PACs suggest the answer is no.

31. DogPAC 32. Dogs Against Romney 33. I Ride Inside — The Pets Against Romney Committee 34. Mitt is Mean — The Animal Lovers Against Romney Committee

Totally inscrutable With these super PACs, your guess is as good as ours: 

35. Americans For More Rhombus 36. Why Not ZoidPAC? 37. Just Drink the Koolaid 38. Citizens Benighted 39. No 2 Sides PAC 40. Peeps PAC 41. The Dump Him Project
