Some Things Never Change
Just like the ridiculous demented wide-stance elephant chosen for the official logo of the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis-St. Paul, the Republican Party has recently decided on their official slogan for the 2008 campaign, and it’s equally ridiculous:
Tah Dah! The winner is: The Change You Deserve.
Kinda sounds like what the country got the last two times it elected a Republican president! And it’s too bad they ended up stealing the slogan from the maker of an anti-depression medication.
If that was the winner of slogan contest, I was determined to find out which suggestions just missed making the final cut, so I tracked them down and here they are:
We Got Your Change, Right Here!
Change! Don’t! Change!
Change You Can Spare? (and it’s corollary, Why Lie: We Need a War!)
Change – So You Can Be Ready When the Moment is Right!
Whips and Change: You Know You Want It!
I Can’t Believe it’s Not Change!
McCain/Change ‘08. Yeah, That’s the Ticket!
The Change You’re Afraid Of
The Experience to Know that Change Depends.
Hey Change, Get off My Lawn!
