"Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river."—Nikita Krushchev.

I stay away from politics here (unless a politician does something so visibly insipid as to pretend to know how to play stickball or hatches the meekest slogan in history), because who gives a shit what I think? For the record, I'm a non-isolationist Libertarian. Whatever that means.
But, if I was a Democrat, 2008 would definitely be the year to run strictly as "I'm not a Republican." Sure, made-up buttons isn't an original idea, but when "the little Bush" (as he was so beautifully called by the brilliant former Iraqi Information Minister Muhammed Saeed al-Sahaf) has produced so many laughable sound bites—and you don't have a coherent platform of your own—gathering W's legacy together on one page makes for an effective ad. related: the best political slogan ever. And, the best protest sign/visual from the 2004 RNC in NYC.
