In NYC, they do celebrate the health benefits for 9.11 rescuers (the ones still alive 9 years later).

The tone is not one of gratitude Read the rest of this entry »

Proving she understands where the problem is (just like the time she declared there was no such thing as sexism), Nancy Pelosi is on a quest to rebrand the Ds. This headline gave me the Morning Sneeze

Steven Spielberg advising Nancy Pelosi on rebranding Democrats

Geez, I thought Tim Kaine already did that by removing theΒ  superfluous “democratic” and coming with the exciting “circle Ds”.

Or rather Nancy did that when she took W’s impeachment off the table.

Or when she joined the hooligans who were dismissing women and working class voters in 2008.

But this is a rebranding akin to W’s finding names for the war in Iraq. HimΒ  went to Madison Avenue advertisers, and it was the Rice A Roni marketer that gave us “Operation Iraqi Freedom”. It’s good to know Nancy, the other San Francisco treat, has the same political acumen as W!

We find out that Nancy

is consulting marketing experts about building a stronger brand. The most prominent of her new whisperers is Steven Spielberg, the Hollywood director whose films have been works of branding genius.

So, if not Jaws, how about the Extra Terrestrials? (ET on the logo)

While it’s interesting that she is so fond of the corporate culture, I think even Wall Street could teach her that ultimately, you are what you do. No amount of rebranding will ever makes BP look not criminal or Enron honest.

And not even Spielberg can make the the dmocrats look “stronger”.

Not after messing up Social Security.

Ouch!  Circle Ds

Hey, I have an idea! How about something big and thick skinned? Like…an elephant, maybe?

or here is a good one
