Subject: Re: Soccer Moms
"Soccer moms" is WOTY--it just came out on Reuters/AP. I thought
"Ebonics" was vastly more significant, but to each his or her own.
How did "soccer moms" break out? I believe the phrase was used in a tv
commercial for a minivan--the Nissan Quest, or another model. WOTY and a
President from an advertising copywriter!
I'd appreciate any citations that anyone can find. I heard it first on tv
at the Republican convention.
Actually, the winner was "mom" since the nomination also mentioned "minivan
moms" and "waitress moms."
