Not a good idea 

It's hard to believe that the Bush/Cheney campaign didn't see this coming:

The Bush-Cheney presidential campaign disabled features of a tool on its website Thursday that pranksters were using to mock the Republican presidential ticket.

The tool originally let users generate a full-size campaign poster in PDF format, customized with a short slogan of their choice. But Bush critics began using the site to place their own snarky political messages above a Bush-Cheney '04 logo and a disclaimer stating that the poster was paid for by Bush-Cheney '04, Inc.
Someone--it might have been Atrios, or Democratic Underground, or some other site, I forget--was keeping track of which words the poster generator would and would not let you insert into a slogan. I guess they'll have to find something even wittier to do now.

UPDATE: It was Wonkette, per the article. Duh. Real classy site, that one.
