hopey_changey “Real American” and eventual presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, riled up her Conservative base during a rousing $100k speech at the Tea Party Convention in Nashville this weekend. Although she peppered the crowd with lots of sound bites, the big take-away of the evening was this line: “How’s that hopey, changey thing working out for ya?.” But, as authentic and Palinesque as that eloquent message sounded, it’s not original! The slogan appeared as a bumper sticker and t-shirt on Zazzle back in early 2009.
