It’s August. Hot, sultry, sunflower bedecked. And getting darn near close to the election season.
Through the centuries American politics has had a gracious plenty of really bad Party slogans & some really clever, memorable gems. Tippecanoe & Tyler Too! is a classic touchstone. My own personal favorite is from 1844: Hurrah! Hurrah! The country’s risin’ for Henry Clay & Frelinghuysen!
- Rum, Romanism & Rebellion
- Ma, Ma, where’s my Pa?
- No cross of gold, no crown of thorns
- America First
- Happy days are here again
- Dewey or don’t we
- I like Ike
- All the way with LBJ
- In your heart, you know he’s right
- In your heart, you know he’s nuts
- Nixon’s the One
- Why not the best?
- It’s morning in America
- Yes We Can
- Make America Great Again
The Republicans of 2018 & 2020 will corner the market on flag-waving-down-your-throat-up-your-kabooty patriotism so let’s help the Democrats come up with something catchy, clever, memorable that fits their agenda. Sorry, but A Better Deal & For the People don’t cut it. (I certainly hope they’re always for the people. Or … is To Serve Man ….. a cookbook …. ? Uhhhhh! Help. ) Come on, wise minds, you can do better. Much better.
Get to it! Bumper sticker & button makers are counting on us.
Vote as you shot (1868 slogan of US Grant. Top that, NRA.)
