The Party Leadership We Deserve?
May 12, 2008 03:38 PM
Ready to get depressed? The House Republicans have a new slogan that is obviously a reaction to Obama's nebulous calls for "change." The slogan is, dum dum DUM: "Change You Deserve."
Actually that drumroll should be "dumb dumb DUMB." You know they paid a consultant a ton of money to come up with it, and it's not even that great.
And even worse, it turns out that "Change You Deserve" is already the registered advertising slogan of Effexor XR-- which treats "depression, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, and panic disorder in adults." It's common side effects are nausea, apathy, constipation, fatigue, vertigo, sexual dysfunction, sweating, memory loss, and "electric shock-like sensations also called 'brain zaps.'"
Maybe it's what we should all be on to get us through the McCain candidacy? I know I've already got the nausea and the apathy, and Bob Dole--our last truly horrible nominee--can help with the worst of the rest of the side effects. He'll hook you up, I hear. And they say we don't have a prescription drug plan.
