Santorum's slogan

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

Rick Santorum stirred up a bit of frothy controversy with his campaign slogan "Fighting to make America America Again," which is rather similar to the title of Langston Hughes' famous poem "Let America Be America Again." The Union Leader reported that the slogan's similarity to the words of a gay black poet was a bit much for the former Senator, as evidenced by his testiness when a student questioned him about it:

"No I had nothing to do with that," Santorum said. "I didn't know that. And the folks who worked on that slogan for me didn't inform me that it came from that, if it in fact came from that." [...] When asked a short time later what the campaign slogan meant to him, Santorum said, "well, I'm not too sure that's my campaign slogan, I think it's on a web site."

This screencap from Santorum's website certainly makes the phrase "Fighting to make America America Again" appear to be his campaign slogan:

When I saw spreadingsantorum.com as the 1 result for his name, I could not help but laugh.
