With 11:34 PM UPDATE!
I’m in the midst of live blogging for my new gig and I’m listening to Hillary Clinton’s victory speech in Ohio and I started snickering when the crowd chanted “Yes, she will,” later followed by Hillary shouting at them, “Yes, we will!”
What is this? Is this Democratic race turning into the 1980s Cola wars where everyone’s co-opting everyone else’s brands? Coke and Pepsi cans are in the same color scheme but Pepsi has a blue stripe? Coke creates New Coke because they think people prefer the sweeter taste of Pepsi, which almost leads to the collapse of the Coca-Cola corporation?
I get that she’s happy she won Ohio. Great. But can’t you bother to come up with your own damn slogans? I know that none of the one’s Mark Penn came up with were very “sexy,” but maybe you should consider Tina Fey’s “Bitches get stuff done” brand.
Or “Clinton: You Already Know What You’re Getting Into.”
Or my personal favorite, “Paybacks’ A Bitch and I’m One Too!“
You don’t even have to give me credit, Hillary.
Side note: Michelle and Barack have come out to concede Ohio. He’s doing the “Yes we can” thing. While I’m somewhat disappointed that the Ohio loss means that I have to watch more and more rounds of “who’s a sexist/who’s a bigot,” everyone’s-pissed-off-all-the-time drama, I have to say for the second time today, Michelle looks resplendent. She’s wearing a black dress with a short, long-sleeved jacket with a sharp, just-below-the-knee length dress with a split in the front. Fierce.
Must. Find. Pictures.
UPDATE: Found them!
