UPDATE: Best Political Slogan Ever.

Last November, while taking about a quarter-assed look at political slogans, I cited Herbert Hoover's "chicken in every pot, car in every garage" motto as the best slogan in history. I was wrong. Reader Margueritte sent me this old Guardian link about war-torn Liberia and President Charles Taylor (right). In the article, writer Sarah Left reports that one of Taylor's slogans in the 1997 general election was: "He killed my Ma, he killed my Pa, but I will vote for him." Taylor won 75% of the popular vote.
previously in politics:
1. On Political Slogans.
3. New York Attorney General Primary: The Signs.
4. Always use black type, sweetheart.

What's with the finger? Is Taylor trying to emulate Bubba? Speaking of Bubba: his slogan was - The Man From Hope; when it should have been - Let Me Put Some Ice On That.

He probably paid for his campaign with all of the money he made from Converse.

His original slogan was:

A relative in every pot, and what's a garage?
