Name The 2012 US Election Slogan Contest

Mark Steyn's column in the Orange County Register is all about election slogans for the 2012. He thinks Obama's "Forward" suggests "More of the Same!". I think more like, "let's not even think about the mess we're in; let's get out of here!". The image that comes to mind is a car stuck in the snow  -- let's get this car in gear and gun the motor. Come to think of it, that's what five trillion dollars of stimulus was supposed to do. That's five trillion dollars in ice-melter down the drain. Or, the getaway driver after the bank robbery - "forward, gun it - let's get out of here!".

Steyn variously suggests:

"You're screwed, losers. Steyn 2012"

"Get real, you chumps. Steyn 2012"

"There's nothing holding the joint up. Steyn 2012"

Surely we can do better. Read the article, and then suggest a slogan for America.

Here're mine:

"Uncle Sam's Coming For You - Ball 2012"

"5 Trillion More! - Obama 2012"

"One Small Debt For Man; A Giant Debt-Load For Mankind - Ball 2012"

"Abandon Hope (And Change) All Ye Who Enter Here - Ball 2012"

Can you do better?

Oh yes, the Contest. The winning entrant will get a tax-free one-year subscription to the Ball Bounces!!!!!

I suppose Obama could borrow an old Ikea ad. The tag line was: START THE CAR! START THE CAR!

"Thank you, sir, may I have another. Obama '12"

"... nothing intellectually compelling or challenging.. bald assertions coupled to superstition... woefully pathetic"
