Fun With Slogans

So, the latest Bush campaign slogan appears to be “We’ve turned the corner…and we’re not going back”, judging from recent campaign appearance video on the news. Dubya hits the phrase again and again during points about the economy, about security, about job creation…and you can always tell the line is coming, because he breaks into that beady-eyed smirk that he gets when he thinks that his writers have given him something clever to say.

Except, as a writer, I can’t help but notice that when one is travelling, “turning the corner” means that you’ve made a course change…and are no longer moving forward.

Yeah, we’ve turned a corner alright….to the RIGHT. We’d like to get back to going forward, please.
