At least it’s not a hanging chad

…The dangling preposition has just started to bother me. I’m preeeetty certain that all this time it should have been “Change In Which We Can Believe”.

…But I also think we should all just let it slide, because I’m NOT going to share the same grammatical bandwagon as McCan’t/Failin’ supporters.

ALSO, re: This letter on Salon

@ Blueflash
Damn snappy, dawg.
PS. I am not saying Obama is stupid. Obviously “Change in which we can believe” would just add to his uppity-elitist-arugula-eating image in a way that would not benefit his campaign.
I’m just saying that his platform is not exceptionally complex and his campaign style has not been particularly intellectual.

I hope this is sarcasm, or if not, that the humble pie is good at this time of year.

Barack Obama prefers Gotham


Design for Obama - You had me at Gotham
{ rmastalerz for Design For Obama }

“Put the word “change” in Comic Sans and the idea feels lightweight and silly. Place it in Times Roman and it feels self-important. In Gotham, it feels just right. Inspiring, not threatening.”
— Branding expert Brian Collins in ‘To the Letter Born’, NYTimes.com


(Really, I just wanted an excuse to say how much I love Obama, Design for Obama and the global atmosphere of Democratic Optimism: ie. very, very much.)
