The Deal

Posted by Mike Merritt in Election 2008 on

I don’t have much time to write tonight, but I’ll stop my work long enough to say this:

If I have to see the phrase, “close the deal” one more time, I may blow my top off!

Can’t the blogosphere and media come up with a new phrase?  I thought it was clever the first 10 times.  But now it’s just getting annoying to see.



wait, what’s wrong with that phrase? I need examples!!! 🙂


The phrase in itself is not bad. Just that every media organization and blog poster was using it when referring to Barack Obama’s loss in Pennsylvania.
