Tweeted from the desk of Mitch McConnell:

Indeed. There is the famous story of a pet foods brand that spent millions on a slick marketing campaign for a new kind of dog food. Focus groups were formed, marketing concepts were presented, rejected, and modified, and eventually all agreed this was one good-looking marketing campaign.
Yet when sales figures came in, they were disappointing, and nothing the marketing folks did helped.
“So what’s wrong?” asked the CEO.
The reports came back from the ground: “the dogs don’t like the food”.
