NewD irection for the Democratic Party

[source]

[…] there was a problem. Democrats have had more “New Directions” recently than MapQuest.

Among the party’s campaign slogans this year: “Culture of Corruption,” “Culture of Cronyism,” “Do-Nothing Congress,” “Rubber-Stamp Congress,” “Together, We Can Do Better,” “Together, America Can Do Better” and, most recently, “Six for ‘06.”

For those keeping score at home, Democrats arrived at “New Direction” yesterday by downgrading one of the “Six for ‘06” issues (health care) and upgrading three others (honesty, civility and fiscal discipline), for a total of eight items on the contents page.

By contrast, Republicans have settled on a single, unofficial slogan, which essentially says: Vote Democrat and Die.

See a spin doctor if this slogan lasts more than 4 hours
