BP Apologists.


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.

People Matter.

Corporate Heist.

Common Welfare.

Social Good.

Public Interest.

Fact based.

Clean Energy.

Old School.

Tax Fairness.

Full Employment.

Just Society.

Corporate Responsibility.

BP Apologists.

Worker Rights.

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

Two words

Boil. it. down. to.

2 Words.

Words with emotional punch.

And it’s fun too!  

YOU TOO! can “Talk. like. a. Gopher.”

Peace out.
