6 November 2000 - campaign slogans

< yesterday -- tomorrow >

Mighty herds of campaign slogans once stampeded across the vast American election season. Today, this majestic species is in danger of extinction.

- Perspicacity is just around the corner.
- Three cars in every garage! No, six! And two children in every pot! I mean, pot for every chicken!
- I’m bored as hell and I won’t take it any more. Hand me the remote.
