Durst: Democratic Slogans

Democratic National Committee leaders recently met with Madison Avenue advertising executives to explore new ways to market the Democratic Party. It was decided that taking ticklish stands that risked alienating potential constituents was far too dicey and the best way to proceed was to retail a new message. Here are a few slogans we here at Worst of Durst are sure they missed. "The Democrats. Like Perot's Party, Only Different." "The New Democratic Party. We Don't Just Feel Your Pain, We're Responsible For A Good Portion Of It." "The Democrats. More Than The Carters." "Democrats Good. Republicans Bad." "The Democratic Party. No Newts." "Dem Dems. We Got Our Mojo Working." "Democrats 'R Us" (with a cigarette holder on the backwards R). "The Democratic Party. We Ain't Going Nowhere." "The New Democrats. No More Sniveling." "Democrats 2.1. Like Microsoft, Only Different." "The Democrats. More Than The Clintons." "Democratic Nation. When Bad Things Happen To Good People." "Those Darn Democrats. A Disney Group." "Not Republican Yet." "The Democratic Party. Where The Party Is You!" "Democrats. Don't The Rich Suck?" "Run DNC. Fresh And Def." "The Democratic Party. We're The Barrel. You're The Monkeys. Let's Have Some Fun." "The Democrats. More Than The Kennedys." "DWA. Dems With Attitude." "The New Democrats. We Don't Blame You."
