The genesis of this unusual communication style —
this exercise in a new kind of “Haiku” —
is a spin-off of a comment I made earlier toady in another Diary:
We Need …
more. short. simple. slogans.
Ed Schultz calls this the “2-word culture” —
The GOP are masters at this — thanks to Frank Luntz and the Heritage Foundation etc.
The Dems not so much.
Try to get the to Point with a typical Democrat —
and you get a 12 Point Policy plan.
(and the moment is lost)
Having a backpack full of 2-word slogans —
can help with those sorely needed “Elevator Speeches”.
As Howard Dean put it a few years ago —
People Vote their Values —
But Dem Run on their Policies.
That can translate to “No Contest”.
BTW. the “New Rule” for this new kind of “Haiku” is
Boil. it. down. to.
Words with emotional punch.
And it’s fun too!
YOU TOO! can “Talk. like. a. Gopher.”
