Slogans stick it to candidates

May 29, 2004


The campaign bumper sticker: The conventional wisdom had always been that for a candidate to get his or her message across, they needed to be able to refine it to a single phrase.

A Chicken in Every Pot.

Tippecanoe and Tyler, Too.

These days, the same rule holds, although with a bit of a twist. Instead of focusing on your own message, you try to reduce your opponent to a single phrase.

Here are some of the bumper stickers being seen so far this election season:
