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

(click ads to read buttons)
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.
(I don't know if these have run anywhere. Campaign by Conscience in Richmond. images via.)

Ron Paul stands for something, and promises nothing but to fight for liberty...

Fight for liberty by destroying the infrastructure needed to have it maybe.

Why would you quote a murderer like Nikita Krushchev? Was he so brilliant, so wise, so forward thinking that he bears even being remembered? Maybe you could quote Pol Pot next time.
