Cheer's and Jeers THURSDAY (with apologies...but not TV Guide)

CHEERS to ABC for pulling its embedded reporters off the Kucinich, Braun and Sharpton campaigns.  Listen carefully: they have ZERO chance of winning and are now mooching off the free publicity.  They should be grateful for the lengthy coverage they got, but it's time to get real.  Now...who's next to get the axe?

CHEERS to Karl Rove for having the noodles to take the Dean juggernaut seriously this early.  But will Dean parry his thrusts?

JEERS to George W. Bush.  Shuts out non-participants in bogus Iraq war from reconstruction bids, then shoves tin cup under their noses.  France, Germany, Russia just put White House on do-not-call list.

CHEERS to George McGovern.  Wednesday appearance on CNN reveals sharp elder statesman with character to spare.  Boy, did we vote for the wrong guy in '72 or what.

JEERS to the mall.  Christmas crush now beyond insane.  Didn't holiday used to be about dude in manger?  What's his name again?  Starts with a...J?  G?  Gigli??

CHEERS to holiday etailing.  Porn subscriptions for everybody!

CHEERS to Bob Novak.  Love him or hate him, his latest column echoes what we're all thinking: Howard Dean needs to tighten up his message and quit shooting from the lip.  It WILL catch up to him.

JEERS to Abercrombie and Fitch for canceling quarterly soft-core "catalog."  God forbid we should show young adults having fun.  Now where will I get new pix for my guys-playing-football-in-jockstraps collection?

CHEERS to columnist/author Molly Ivins.  If you don't read her every column---not to mention the brilliant "Bushwhacked" bestseller---you're missing a liberal genius in her prime.  Just say the word and I'll be your slave.

JEERS to bloggers who think they've scaled Mount Everest just because they're first ("First?"  "First!"  "Ha, I'm first!") to respond to a post.  What...Mamma didn't sing to you enough in the womb?

CHEERS to the orgasmic anticipation of next week's opening of Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.  Wednesday should be declared a no-work day for everyone.  Memo to the Nickelodeon Theatre in Portland, Maine: fire up that nacho cheese warmer early or else...

JEERS to Ernest Gaullet Elementary School in Lafayette, Louisiana, for punishing a 7 year old---a SEVEN year old!---for using the word gay in school (his mom is---horrors---a lesbian).  So what happens when the class sings Deck the Halls and they get to the "don we now our gay apparel" part?  Expulsion!

CHEERS to Alaska.  You folks never cause trouble.  You're quiet and friendly and hard-working and I don't think we give you enough credit.  If only the deep south behaved more like Alaska...

J.E.ERS t.o idio.tic and the way they f**k with s-u-b-j-e-c-t l.ines to beat my a.n.t.i spam softwar.e.  There ain't a pill in the world big enough to increase the size of your t.i.n.y.p.e.n.i.s, you morons.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Look, if you're going to post these constantly can you please make them a little more friendly:
      -Strip off the leading and trailing dashes and blank lines
      -Put most of it below the fold so that on the main diary page it's smaller
    •  Re: Cheers and Jeers encore Thursday (none)


      The fold? This ain't a newspaper.

      Constantly?  Twice a day only because the diaries slip downstream so fast.

      The dashes? my calling card, Signore Beef.

      Thank you for your comments.  Here in Maine, we try hard to service your needs.  We look forward to serving you in the future.
