Harriet Miers, version 2.0
Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 03:52 AM by Scooter24
This is a post from a weblog I read regularly. I thought it was funny to post here.

From Jeremy's Weblog:

http://jeremyblachman.blogspot.com/2005/10/theres-artic...

Theres an article on Time.com about how the White House hopes to relaunch the nomination of Harriet Miers for the Supreme Court by moving from what they call a biographical phase to an accomplishment phase.

The language relaunch strikes me as kind of bizarre. Like shes a product theyre trying to sell. Which, I suppose, she is. Harriet Miers, version 2.0, now with less fat and fewer calories. Harriet Miers, version 2.0, one month free, no credit card number required. Harriet Miers, version 2.0, new packaging, same great taste. The Harriet Miers you've grown to love, now with Calcium. Harriet Miers Gold Edition, including a free six-month trial subscription to Newsweek. Harriet Miers for Kids, now in three great-tasting flavors and without the chalky aftertaste. Harriet Miers now not only gives your mirrors a streak-free shine, but also cleans your leather and upholstery. The new version of Harriet Miers no longer requires refrigeration, and has an easy-to-use pop-top opening, so you don't need the can opener. Harriet Miers is now packaged in resealable plastic, for your convenience. The great taste of Harriet Miers, without the artificial additives. Harriet Miers 2: Harriet Goes to Camp. Harriet Miers: European Gigolo. Harriet Miers' Big Top. Harriet! Now with fifty levels and a bonus reward at the end. Everything you know about Harriet, minus the church attendance. Now you can find Harriet Miers not only at the restaurants you love but also in your grocer's freezer. For a limited time only, Harriet Miers now comes with a free sample of Michael McConnell, in a convenient take-it-with-you plastic case. Dandruff Control Harriet Miers: No more flakes. Special Edition boxes of Harriet Miers now come with a coupon for $5 off your next turkey, just in time for the holidays. Snack size Harriet Miers is perfect for Halloween. Harriet Miers, version 2.0, now with real fruit. The Best of Harriet Miers now available at your local video store, for sale or for rent. Harriet Miers is coming to a city near you. Harriet Miers on Ice. Harriet Miers, with special guest Hayley Duff. Harriet Miers revised paperback edition, with a new afterword by the author. Harriet Miers: Return of the Sith. Harriet 2.0: great taste, less filling. Harriet Miers, now with fewer side effects and a lower probability of dry mouth, dizziness, and chronic fatigue.

Edit: Sorry about the previous problems, DU wasn't cooperating. :)

3. You just can't go without Miers now :)
I mean, really? How can we deny an easy-to-use pop-top opening? lol

2. Funny!
And true. That's what we get from the first MBA president. Just look at all the iterations of sales strategies they're using for the war. I remember when they first starting talk of war it was like the new bushco product for the season.
