The Democrats Unveiled a New Slogan and It's Infuriatingly Stupid

Oh no.

In the midst of a reeling Republican presidential administration that may or may not be imploding in spectacular fashion even as you read this sentence, the Democrats have rolled out their slogan for the 2018 midterm congressional elections. My friends, the fight for the soul of this country is in the hands of people who came up with... this:

I shouldve corrected this immediately; I've deleted original tweet. Full slogan is "A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages".

Congratulations to those of you who reflexively whispered "...Papa John's" before burying your head in your arms and sobbing quietly.

For God's sake, it's been only two weeks since the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee invited the Internet to vote on which inane resistance-themed Pinterest meme it should turn into a 2018 bumper sticker, and 13 days, 23 hours, and 59 minutes since the Internet responded by mercilessly roasting them for it. But instead of promptly firing every Don Draper knockoff involved in the creation of these abominations, the people charged with wresting control of the country from a senile bigot less than 18 months from today are indeed poised to roll out what sounds like a marketing tagline for Corinthian Colleges...........

Holy cow that is bad. I hope they fired the marketing company that came up with that. Bumper stickers are not supposed to wrap around the car.

The original post is a quotation from GQ - Gentleman's Quarterly,
a "sophisticated" leftist publication
that exists to perpetuate the fantasy that
sophistication and leftism are just two words for the same thing.

They hate the Dems' new slogan
(which will probably evaporate faster than the
one millisecond attention span of the average Democrat voter)
because it lacks all the qualities of an effective slogan:
wit, cleverness, brevity, and catchiness.

Of course, the real reason it's a terrible slogan for the Dems is,
it focuses on WORK related issues - the LAST thing a Democrat wants!
Today's Democratic Party is ALL about FREEBIES!
Today's Democratic Party is ALL about GETTING SOMETHING FOR NOTHING!
If they can come up with a slogan that makes that sound virtuous,
they'll have something.

Of course, it's next to impossible to portray laziness and theft as virtues.
That's why the Dems focus so little on themselves,
and instead attack their opponents as "greedy" and "hateful."
The Dems have completely abandoned all virtue,
and instead have become fully committed to the VICE of envy!
Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.

It was also plagiarism:

Better jobs, better wages, better skills, better ingredients, better pizza

The slogan drew immediate taunts given its obvious similarity to the Papa John’s tagline, “Better Ingredients. Better Pizza. Papa John’s.”

The thought that the liberal leftist mental midgets would actually believe that the DEMS will provide jobs is ridiculous in itself ... what happened to all the jobs under Bammy?  Perhaps I missed the 'Summer of Recovery'!
