I was discussing with a friend a blog post I read a while back on Scott Adams' blog. He had mentioned that he had been consulted by a political party to help them write a slogan or catch-phrase or sound bite for them to use to bury/overshadow some other negative item that had come out recently. He said he had come up with one, and that it was used heavily, and was present across a great deal of media for a number of days. He went on to suggest that most of his readers would have heard or read the slogan. We would be familiar with it. He was cryptic however, and wouldn't give details.
My friend and I wanted to investigate, and see if we could figure out what the slogan or whatever was. The problem is, I can't find any reference to the original post. The archive on the site doesn't go back far enough, best I can tell. I also couldn't find anything on the web about other people discussing his claim and trying to figure out what it was.
At this point, I'd just be happy to be able to read the original post to get me headed in the right direction trying to discover the slogan.
Problem is, do I search for slogan, sound byte, sound bIte, media byte, scott adams, dilbert, political party, politics, etc... I been doing it all. I've even spent the last hour on the Wayback Machine trying to find the post with no luck (that doesn't mean it isn't there) I'm out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
