Jingo-Jihadists Cheerfully Surrendering Mike Jingozian, candidate for president (of the United States) has begun his political campaign.
With a surrender.
Using the banner “Jingo-Jihadists for Surrender Soonest” the JJ for SS hopes to mobilize the America-Firster voting public into surrendering, a la French, to Al Qaeda.
However. It might be a mistake for a politician to throw his hands into the air and cry “Surrender Now!” This makes for a compelling picture message, that didn’t even work for Cindy Sheehan.
The first rule of politics, as in medicine is First Do No Harm.
Which is close to a motto in our household: Don’t screw up.
(Alert Readers understand well that Your Business Blogger rather enjoys a [calculated] risk. Don’t Screw Up is not a retreat from trying, but an invective to be smart.)
Smart politics has yet to be found in the Jingo-Jihad Surrender presidential campaign. The first item on which Your Business Blogger advises clients is to get the big, simple things right.
Like your name.
And the domain. This being the internet age and all.
Which makes the Jingo-Jihad Surrender campaign so sad. Mike Jingozian claims a degree from Harvard and various technology awards.

So, we start with three minor campaign criticisms:
1) Surrender is bad bannering
2) Claim your name domain
3) Make your picture perfect
Yes, there’s more. Continue reading the Jingozium Erratum at the jump.
