MAN 2020: LOL FUCK OFF!!!

It’s unorthodox, but it definitely captures the essence of my campaign.

enalzi 2020: Some cream and sugar

If I go back one text, I have my perfect re-election slogan-
enalzi 2024: Sorry I didn't get much done.

I think these slogans (well, the ones that follow the rules) are awesome. But now I'm reading actual campaign slogans of the candidates, and trying to reverse engineer them into texts.

Biden 2020: Our best days still lie ahead. (OMG, that's so tragic! Was that text to his wife?)

Harris 2020: For the people. (Party planning? Not sure.)

Warren 2020: We will save our democracy (a group text to the next resistance meeting, I guess)

Sanders 2020: Not me. Us. (Seems really skeevey.)

Or it could carry the opposite connotation - "Let them eat cheesecake"

Gosh, mine works quite well. Although I'd probably still lose to Inner Stickler's pandering to the voters with the cherry cheesecake. Heck, I probably wouldn't even vote for myself, come to think of it.
