Bumper Sticker Writers Convene At Wisconsin GOP Convention

It looks like the nation's bumper sticker writers somehow got themselves all invited to the state GOP convention, and whatever they came up were rolled into our state Republican party's 2008 platform.

Their grab-bag of platitudinous sloganeering in full, is here.

My personal favorites?

You don't see deep thinking like this in the political environment too often, do you:

􀂙 Our goal should be to provide long-term solutions instead of short-term fixes.

On the other hand, there are guaranteed hand-clappers like these about the importance of the English language...

􀂙 English should be the official language of government, and all election ballots and other government documents should be printed in English.

􀂙 Immigrants should be required to learn English.

...but are undercut by a no-account double negative a few slogans later...

􀂙 Separation between Church and State does not mean there can be no references to God in government sanctioned activities or public buildings.
