When it's so wrong, it's right

This is the kind of thing you can't make up.

The House Republicans' new slogan to promote their party agenda is "the change you deserve."

Sound familiar? Maybe you've seen it in a magazine or heard it on TV? Because it's trademarked. By a pharmaceutical company. For an antidepressant.

Don't believe me? Read all about it on the Wyeth sponsored website about depression and their patented anti-depressant, Effexor (by the way - I read about this on HuffPost, who found it on Bluestem - gotta love the net!):

The Change You Deserve

Are these symptoms of depression interfering with your life?

  • Not involved with family and friends the way you used to be?
  • Low energy, fatigue?
  • Not motivated to do the things you once looked forward to doing?
  • Not feeling as good as you used to?

There you have it, straight from the pharma's mouth.

So, if eight years of the Bush administration has left you feeling... Oh, I can't, it's just too easy.
