A slogan for the revolution

While making the drive back from truck driving school, sixty miles across the prairie, listening to El Rushbo makes the miles go by faster.

Today I heard a caller who identified herself as a 68-year-old white lady, who may have coined the slogan for the Tea Party revolution.

She said, “I’m not a racist. I’m not violent. I’m just no longer silent.”

I immediately started imagining signs, buttons, and bumper stickers.

Not racist.
Not violent.
Just no longer silent.

It scans and rhymes. Say it to yourself a few times and you’ll find it catchy.

It could start with TEA PARTY at the header – or it could have a simple logo. I suggest a teapot tilted about 45 degrees from horizontal and pouring to the right.

Sorry I didn’t catch your name lady, I’d like to give you credit for the idea.

    Just one thought, Stephen:

    While this slogan is good, it is also defensive. The Tea Party’s opponents have accused them of being racist/angry/etc…
    They are not. Is it a good idea to let them set the agenda for messages?
