Cart Before Horse (Politics)

Here are some examples of putting the cart before the horse this political season. I’ve got two examples from Barack Obama and one from John McCain.

  • Obama’s Presidential Seal: Sen. Obama unveiled this Presidential Seal at a round-table discussion with Democratic governors on June 20, 2008. The seal was dropped from campaign use several days later.

  • Obama’s Presidential Coin: A Birmingham company is minting presidential coins for Sen. Obama. They have already sold more than 300 limited edition coins to the Democratic Party to hand out to key members of the campaign to elect Obama. (HT: Don Surber)

  • McCain’s Early Debate Ad: Hey, there’s nothing wrong with either candidate declaring victory in the debate. But Sen. McCain ran this ad in the Wall Street Journal online Friday morning before the debate even took place. You can see a screen shot of the ad in the WSJ here. (HT: Museum of Hoaxes)
