Well, we seem to have come full circle on the matter of the House Republicans hilariously choosing a campaign slogan, "The Change You Deserve", that is shared by the anti-depressant Effexor. On today's This Week with George Stephanopoulos, the eponymous host took a few minutes to rub it in the face of House Minority Leader John Boehner.
STEPHANOPOULOS: The Democrats are having some fun at your expense this week because they look at your slogan, "The Change You Deserve," and say that's the slogan for Effexor, an anti-depressant. Here was Congressman Steny Hoyer, your counterpart.
HOYER: [on videotape] "The Change You Deserve", of course, is a trademark for an anti-depressant. It does have side effects. It can make you sick. 82% of Americans have indicated they are sick and tired of the policies that have been pursued by the Bush-Boehner administration.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Shouldn't you have seen that coming?
BOEHNER: Listen, I could have used an anti-depressant last week.
Hey! Maybe the American electorate is poised to take the Congressman up on that offer! After all, one of the typical side-effects of anti-depressants is a difficulty in maintaining a "Boehner."
I know...bad joke. Still: very true!
