Hot pink and sparkles a new look for politics
If you have not yet heard, New York has a new “Diva of the District”.
Mindy Meyer, a 22-year-old Orthodox Jew, is running to replace Senator Parker, who currently holds seat over the 21st District. And that’s all fine and dandy —who doesn’t like democracy?— especially if you overlook Meyer’s age and inexperience.
In fact, Meyer says that her age and spunk, and “inexperience with corruption” are what make her campaign so unique. Slamming a big debut on Twitter, Meyer believes she’s making a splash in a tepid pool of political boredom.
And I guess you can’t blame her. Meyer does make a good point when she says “you could fall asleep when you go to [Kevin Parker’s site], everything is just red, white, and blue.” (Odd choices)
So instead of heading down the road of Parker’s inexplicable color schemes, Meyers has decided to redefine politics (or at least its websites). By slamming you in the face with hot pink and bedazzlement, Meyers has hit the ground running by showing NY just what she offer. Her apparent goal: let the pink do the talking.
And I believe it’s worked! From the second I arrived at her website (mindymeyer4senate.com), the pink bespoke professionalism, and convinced me: I want this diva to be my Senator.
A few people I know think it’s a hoax, but I just laughed that off. Mindy Meyer is here for good.
Six Things Mindy Meyer’s Site Taught Me:
1. Song beats on loop aren’t just for star-bordered pop-ups
When I first arrived on Meyer’s site I read “I’m Senator and I know it” in bedazzled letters.
“I’m Senator and I know it”. That doesn’t sound right. You’re not the Senator. Is there a syntax problem I’m not getting?
And then it started: the beat from LMFAO’s tune “I’m Sexy and I Know It”. And it played, over and over and over again.
I get it! You changed “sexy” to “senator”!
2. Candidates can choose their own podium color
Not only is her site pink, but so is the podium at which she speaks. Just check out her front page.
3. Mindy might be an internet hacker
When I sent the website to my friends, it told them the site was a security risk and wouldn’t let them navigate there.
Now either their mean computers are just too anal (or maybe I need a new firewall), but shouldn’t Mindy’s fight against innocence have a secure website? Maybe we’ve all been duped.
4. Mindy is so vivacious, she doesn’t only bedazzle websites, she bedazzles people
5. If Mindy were in the Hunger Games, I would not bet on her
I’m no Legolas, not even Arya, but something tells me this isn’t the proper archery technique:
6. Perhaps my mental distinctions between reality, pseudo-reality, alter-reality, dual-reality, fake stuff, and politics are not as sharp as I thought.
Am I missing something here?
Anyway, I’ve digressed. Meyer for State Senate.
