Hail Mary Time: Slurpee Out, Latte In

President Obama had used his “Republicans drinking Slurpees” line at least 25 times, and that doesn’t seem to have given the Democrats much momentum.

Time to switch drinks:


I think I see the strategy here. “Slurpee” sounds too working class, but “latte” sounds foo-foo richy-rich. And when you think foo-foo richy rich, who do you think of? That’s right: John Kerry.

Back to the drawing board, Mr. President.

The “drinking latte” thing has political roots in the 2008 primary season, except then it was used against Obama. When Obama was running against Hillary Clinton, a Clinton supporter and president of the machinists’ union referred to Obama’s supporters as a “latte-drinking, Prius-driving, Birkenstock-wearing, trust fund babies.”

Now it’s really time to go back to the drawing board.
