We can do better...

After learning that the 2006 slogans being tossed about by Democrats on the Hill are "Together, We Can Do Better" or "Together, America Can Do Better," Shake's Sister is not pleased:


That piece of shit slogan aspires to cliché hell.
Aside from the language itself being about as inspiring as a stinky wet sock, the sentiment behind 'We Can Do Better' rings appallingly devoid of what I can best describe as self-esteem. The Democrats have internalized the old 'at least we’re not the Republicans' chestnut to such a sickening degree that they’ve turned it into their blasted slogan.
She argues that aside from referencing the Republicans and reinforcing them as the "the norm," this slogan fails to communicate anything new:
"It’s a rehash of the same strategy to position themselves as a milquetoast alternative, wrapping it up with an inoffensive little bow and hoping it can compete with the three-ring circus of insanity the GOP puts on for its base."
