The Democrats have adopted a cheesy new slogan which they hope will help them defeat the Republicans at the 2018 midterm elections.
Unfortunately, the Dems’ “new” slogan, “A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages,” is a thinly-veiled rip-off of the marketing slogan used by the Papa John‘s pizza chain. Papa John’s snappy slogan is “Better Ingredients. Better Pizza.”
Vox reporter Jeff Stein tweeted the Dems’ new slogan and economic agenda, which he says resulted from “months of polling and internal deliberations among the House Democratic caucus.”
Wow, and the best they could come up with was a Papa John’s rehash? How much did that bit of unoriginal marketing cost Democratic taxpayers?

Many on social media immediately pointed out the laughable similarity between the Democrats’ new tagline and that of the Papa John’s pizza chain.
This is the Papa Johns slogan. https://t.co/5XMWYkP1iW

Democratic operative Ezra Levin tweeted that the new slogan may have been inspired by a May 2017 op-ed written by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 running mate, Senator Tim Kaine.

The Democrats are in serious trouble after suffering four straight defeats in special elections this year. This is on top of losing the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the White House at the 2016 elections.
With no charismatic leader to hoist up the party for the 2020 presidential election, career politicians like Maxine Waters, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders, have all suggested they may run in 2020.
That’s music to Republicans’ ears, because they’re confident President Trump can easily defeat any of those clowns.
Meanwhile, Conservative Twitter had a blast making their own hilariously snarky contributions to the #NewDemSlogans hashtag.
