Having Run Out Of Ideas, Democrats Co-opt Papa John’s Slogan For 2018 Midterms

Having failed to be anything other than La Resistance to Donald Trump, having no ideas or policies (other than wanting to take people’s guns away and allow abortion with zero restrictions), the Dems have a new slogan (via Twitchy)


(Newsweek) Since Wednesday, November 9, 2016—the day after Donald Trump shocked the world by winning the presidency—Democrats have eyed 2018 as a year of redemption. The midterm elections would be the first real shot to make up for their stunning failure in 2016 and to take advantage of a president who has—at least for now—proved to be historically unpopular.

After careful consideration, likely countless hours of work-shopping, and input from focus groups, the Democrats have reportedly settled on a new slogan and tagline for next year’s midterms. That’s a big deal, since a slogan can be massively important—remember that whole thing about Making America Great Again?

“A member of Congress told me Democrats big 2018 slogan, which is set to be released Monday. It’s: ‘Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages'” tweeted Vox congressional reporter Jeff Stein on Thursday. He later deleted that tweet and corrected it by noting the full slogan was actually “A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages.”

Stein said that a member of Congress “noted that this is the result of months of polling and internal deliberations among the House Democratic caucus.”

If you’re suddenly hankering for a slice of greasy, cheesy pizza with sauce that—hot take alert—is reminiscent of ketchup, it’s hard to blame you. The Democrats’ tagline is eerily similar to that of Papa John’s: “Better Ingredients. Better Pizza. Papa John’s.” The similarity was not noticed solely by your intrepid Newsweek writer. The internet was quick to point it out.

But the real inspiration for the slogan and tagline likely isn’t a late-night pizza order. Ezra Levin, co-executive director of liberal grassroots organization the Indivisible Project, pointed out on Twitter that the new slogan appeared to be co-opted from an op-ed written by Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, who was Clinton’s running mate in 2016.

Well, that might make it worse, since we were told that the Obama economy was super wonderful majorly awesome. Either way, it exposes that things were not particularly great during that time period. But, the slogan has not been officially rolled out yet, and if it is, it’ll get a lot of ridicule.

    “president” trumpski explaining healthcare:

    “So preexisting conditions are a tough deal,” Trump told the Times. “Because you are basically saying from the moment the insurance, you’re 21 years old, you start working and you’re paying $12 a year for insurance, and by the time you’re 70, you get a nice plan. Here’s something where you walk up and say, “I want my insurance.” It’s a very tough deal, but it is something that we’re doing a good job of.”

    If people trained for better skills, they’d have better jobs! How is it George Bush’s Donald Trump’s fault that so many Special Snowflakesâ„¢ racked up dozens of thousands of dollars in student loans to get degrees in English or 17th century French Literature instead of becoming plumbers or electricians?

    trumpski/Bannon GOP motto: “For Religion, the King, and the Fatherland!”

  7. Jeffery says:

    Dems: The economic evidence clearly shows the problems with the US economy are not due to a “skills gap”.

    That’s not to say we shouldn’t enable retraining.

      Jeff, once again you show you abject stupidity. Now, the economy is in trouble because of Barney Frank and what he did to the economy 15 years ago, the stupidity of Obama and his over regulation and horrible approach by following the same techniques as Japan did years ago. Trump is bring us back and it is refreshing. If he can get the Republican party to do something, then we will be set for decades, just as what happened under Reagan. But, you don’t understand those things. And, yes we have a significant skills gap, mostly, again, secondary to Democratic regulations, such as doing away to apprenticeships (you don’t know that do you). I see trades people daily and they all complain about the lack of skilled people of younger ages. So, once again, you blog about stuff you have no knowledge of, don’t understand, misinterpret, lie about and generally act like a FOOL.

    Economic evidence disagrees with your anecdotes. A shortage of available employees should result in a bidding war for workers, right? So according to your calculus wages should be increasing, especially in the fields you just described. Is that happening?

    reagan stimulated the economy by doubling the national debt. Do you agree with that approach?

    Do you not understand how markets work?

  9. david7134 says:

    Jeff, lying again. The democrats increased the debt, not Reagan. And why do you care about the debt? After Obama you can’t say a thing. But the point on skilled workers had to do with the economy, not salaries. You really don’t understand a thing as you are so focused on socialism. Fool.
