Campaign slogans we'd like to see

One thing missing from the current cycle of Presidential campaigning is the catchy slogan which used to be a staple of American politics. Who could forget those pithy lines which came trippingly off the tongue like, “Tippecanoe and Tyler, too!” or “Two chickens in every pot” or “I like Ike” or “In your heart, you know he’s right” or “Nixon’s the One” or “Why not the best?”

The last was Jimmy Carter’s, which may have killed the tradition right there. But if modern politicians are reluctant to put forth slogans for their campaigns (odd, since most speak in sound bites anyway), someone else should do it for them. Enter the whimsical Frank J. of IMAO, who suggests his own. A few samples:

John Edwards: I feel pretty.

Barack Obama: I have no idea what I’m doing, but maybe you don’t too and will vote for me!

Mitt Romney: Can’t you already see him as an animatron in the Hall of Presidents?

Hillary Clinton: Give in the to the darkness!

Ron Paul: You don’t have to be crazy to vote for me, but it helps.

John McCain: This slogan is within the regulations of campaign finance reform.

Read the rest at the link above – and don’t forget the comments, where his readers have some excellent ideas, such as:

Ron Paul: with apologies to Billy Joel – “but maybe it’s a lunatic you’re looking for”

Mitt Romney: The Other White Meat

Vote for Barack Hussein, and make this an Obamanation!

Rudy Giuliani: I was there on 9/11!!!

John Edwards: A cut above the best

Ron Paul: Vote for Ron or they will taze you, bro.

. . . and my personal favorite:

Hillary: Why settle for the lesser evil?
