For Tax and Spend we have "Spending like a man with a week to live"

Then, of course, there are areas that do not symmetrically match the labels the Republicans give the Democrats--

  • anti worker
  • Raping the commons
  • fundamentalist
  • corrupted by big money and big corporations--
  • big debt, huge, unbalanced budgets
  • willingness to restrict constitutional rights
  • fundamentalist
  • extremist
  • Greedy
  • they declared class war on us.
  • Deregulation of industry
  • Privatization
  • vote stealing

Clinton screwed an intern. Republicans Screw the bottom 95 percent, screw the worker, screw the people, screw America in the name of globalization, rape America's resources, make huge deficits and bigger government, and when you watch their lips you see lies, secrets, deceptions...

Okay that's still to long. After all, tax and spend, big government is only seven syllables.

How about, spend and screw America, big deficit corporatist traitors ?

Nah. That's too intense, sounds a bit too much like radical socialist, or at least, easily framed that way. The idea is to use terms that the middle can embrace.

Screw-the-bottom-95%, big-deficit, big-business-sellouts.

This is even longer, and it fails the syllable count, but it does consist of three simple phrases

Hey. It's a first try. We desperately need to have a one liner that sums up the minuses of the the right wing.

Me, personally, I'd go a step further and say

Rape and Screw-the-bottom-95%, big-deficit, big-business whores.

Ever since the Supreme Whores sold out the country by handing Bush the presidency, the word prostitute has seemed a natural one to describe the party of Nixon, Agnew, Bush, Cheney, Oliver North, Trent Lott, Phil Graham, Enron, MCI, Halliburton, Karl Rove, Katherine Harris, Grover Norquist, Richard Mellon Scaife, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Tom DeLay...

I guess my version may not grab the 27 percent of the population who are fundamentalist religious zealots who put papal decree and trumped up moral fantasies over the constitution and democracy. 

But that still leaves the un-hypnotized middle. What the heck, even the fundamentalists understand fornication. And after all, fornication of and defecation on the bottom 95% is what the republicans are all about.

Maybe that's the big syllable answer:

Big deficit, big business whores, Fornicating and defecating on the bottom 95%
