Latest Slogan for McCain and Palin is Alcoholic: This Time Will Be Different!

Last night, I encountered the latest McCain-Palin slogan on their campaign website:

McCain-Palin Campaign Slogan: Reform, Prosperity, Peace

Peregrin Wood has already covered the creepy cult-like aspects of the phrase “Country First.” But what about “Reform, Prosperity, Peace?”

Reform? Under the rule of George W. Bush and the Republican-controlled Congress, consumer protections were dismantled, civil liberties squashed, lobbyists hugged, ethics ignored, anti-trust considerations sidelined, environmental science laughed at square in the face. John McCain voted for this Bush agenda 95% of the time.

Prosperity? Are you better off than you were eight years ago?

Peace? We’ve been at war for six years, with no end in sight.

Voting for John McCain and Sarah Palin under the banner of “Reform, Prosperity, Peace” is like giving an alcoholic a fifth of whiskey because this time, he promises, he’ll stop at the first drink.
