New Democrat Slogan Recalls Papa John’s Jingle

Democrats have a new slogan for 2018, and it's weirdly reminiscent of pizza chain Papa John's advertising jingle.

"Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages" is the line, echoing "Better Ingredients, Better Pizza, Papa John's," Newsweek reports.

"A member of Congress told me Democrats big 2018 slogan, which is set to be released Monday. It's: ‘Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages,'" tweeted Vox Congressional reporter Jeff Stein. Stein subsequently deleted the tweet, and then clarified that the full slogan was "A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages."

The slogan is "the result of months of polling and internal deliberations among the House Democratic caucus," Stein noted.

The similarity between the two slogans was quickly noted by Twitter.

Indivisible Project director Ezra Levin pointed out, however, that the source was less likely to be the pizza chain than losing Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.).
