Getting what you deserve

In a memo to be sent to Republican members today, the leadership hints at a new slogan building on the change message that has already been shown to have political resonance with a public unhappy with the nation’s direction.

It looks like Republicans will counter the Democratic push for change from the years of the Bush administration with their own pledge to deliver, drum roll please, “the change you deserve.”

As I have written previously my New England Puritan heritage predisposes me to be pessimistic about what a sinner like me deserves so I respond much more negatively than most Americans to offers to “get what you deserve.” But I do like this new Republican slogan because it sounds like they agree with me that if you vote for them you deserve what you get.
