UPDATE: Best Political Slogan Ever.
Last November, while taking about a quarter-assed look at political slogans, I cited Herbert Hoover's "chicken in every pot, car in every garage" motto as the best slogan in history. I was wrong. Reader Margueritte sent me this old Guardian link about war-torn Liberia and President Charles Taylor (right). In the article, writer Sarah Left reports that one of Taylor's slogans in the 1997 general election was: "He killed my Ma, he killed my Pa, but I will vote for him." Taylor won 75% of the popular vote.
