  1. Seems like it might be a good idea at first, until you consider the slow witted populace at large will then start choosing politicians based on the sponsor products they enjoy.

      That is probably true, and the possibility that it is, is one of the most depressing thoughts I have had in quite some time.

        It might have the benefit of making bible-belters heads explode when they can’t tell the difference between their favorite NASCAR drivers and the evil, commie liberals running for office in their state.

          Exploding the heads of bible belters definitely goes in the “pros” column.

    • But sponsors have electrolytes…

    Hell yeah!  Now if we can just get those mofos to crash and burn at 200 m.p.h.

    Yes, but what are electrolytes?

    I have no idea. But they sound impressive, so they must be good.

  15. It’s what plants crave!

  16. Who cares? They’re in extremely short supply, and WE sell them!

    Hey, don’t think of it as “branding,” think of it as “Fashion Marketing.”

    Well-timed and prescient.  Yes, the advertising $$ will come in handy, and can credibly be passed off as a “down-home, populist” response to hippies’ cries for more transparency in campaign funding.  But it also has tangible safety benefits. 
     
    Those NASCAR uniforms have to be made of light, flexible yet tough and flame-retardant materials.  Just enough give to allow them to service their sodomizing corporate masters with strategically placed “flaps”, yet hardy enough to withstand the inevitable blunt weapon trauma and kerosene torches from their disenfranchised constituents.  Tres chic!
