Democrats hoping for a change in political fortunes have reportedly spent millions of dollars, and a lot of time, on a new slogan. Once it leaked to the media, however, everyone noticed how similar it was to the slogan used by a certain pizza chain.
According to a reporter from Vox, the Democrats planned to unveil the slogan “A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages.” The slogan, reportedly formed after a number of focus groups and lots of paid research, isn’t getting a good reception.
Of course, you’ve likely realized the slogan sounds a lot like Papa John’s slogan: “Better Ingredients, Better Pizza.”
Once the internet noticed this, hilarity ensued. Democrats, on the other hand, were left facepalming themselves.
They should actually be happy. Last week, a Democratic congressional PAC actually rolled out their new slogan: “I mean, have you seen the other guys?” No, seriously, they did. Look.

Iron Man director Jon Favreau, who once wrote speeches for Barack Obama, panned the new “Papa John’s” inspired slogan. “If your slogan uses a colon or a comma, back to the drawing board,” he tweeted.
Hillary Clinton’s former speechwriter, Jon Lovett, was less diplomatic. “Fire every consultant involved,” he tweeted at first, only to follow it up with “ALLOW ME TO SECOND ANYONE WITH A F—ING BRAIN: THIS SLOGAN IS GARBAGE. Hoping it’s not real.”
Others point out that it is a sideways slam of Obama. If you need better jobs and better wages, they reason, they should blame the last eight years of Obama.
Here are a few tweets roasting the new slogan:
