MLK Day

My last poll asked which politician benefited the most from voters thinking they were someone else.

It was a tie between Mitch McConnell who is mistaken for Admiral Ackbar from THE RETURN OF THE JEDI and Santorum with people not knowing they are voting for Rick Santorum and think they are voting for something much less disgusting.

This week's poll falls on Martin Luther King Day. This holiday has come along way in my lifetime. I can remember when the only business that celebrated it was Macy's who had their “Martin Luther King White Sale”. As bad as that was it was a start. Now businesses are getting in on the act and honoring him with sales. They are putting him in with Washington and Jefferson which I think is great.

So I ask you, dear reader, what is the best slogan for a Martin Luther King Day sale.

Come see a Mountain Top of Savings

Free shipping, Free shipping, Free shipping at last.

High prices anywhere, are a threat to savings everywhere.

MLK White Sale.

As always vote on the upper left hand corner of the page.

It's always nice to me to think of this holiday that honors a man whose influence has affected my country (and perhaps more) in my lifetime.

We don't have a frame of reference, really, for the before/afters of the other people honored by holidays, but his Dr. King's influence and example have done as much or more on bettering this nation as any elected official we have ever had, in my opinion, even if we don't include the negative effects so many have had.

I do agree with you about Dr. King's influence. I think it a good thing that there are MLK day sales, it brings his name up and people have to remember his life. Even the Macy's "MLK white sale" helped in that respect. Although it was a horrible marketing slogan they were the first (that I know of) to do something for that day. That was back when southern states had MLK and Robert E. Lee day on the same day.
