What's your silly campaign slogan?


If you were running for president, what would your campaign slogan be? No serious answers, please. The sillier, the better.

Vote for ekedolphin in 2020: "Technically, He's Old Enough Now."

A vote for Prof. Pepperwinkle is a vote for informed, compassionate lunacy!

Vote for Quondam Mechanic. He may be uncertain, but at least he's principled.

My three favorite offbeat slogans IRL:

"Zell Yes!" (Zell Miller, running for Governor of Georgia)

"A troubled man for troubled times" (Alice Cooper for President)

"Better a lizard than a wizard" (for the crooked Edwin Edwards over the ex-Klansman David Duke for Governor of Louisiana)

As I recall, Edwards joked that he had to hire new campaign staff. None of his regular people knew how to run a campaign based on holding the higher moral ground.

He also quoted Earl Long, a predecessor, in saying that "The only way I can lose is if I get caught in bed with a dead woman or a live boy."

This bumper sticker actually existed while Edwards ran against Duke: Vote for the crook. It’s important.
