Okay, this is just a tiny story, but worthy of repeating. I magically found myself with an RNC Guest Pass today (moohoohoohaahaa), and so I made my way toward the Garden, herded along with many, many, hot, pissed-off New Yorkers. Eventually, security stripped away layers of the great unwashed, leaving me strolling along the sidewalk with GOP delegates and other various soul-sucking creatures from the depths of hell.

As we waited to get through the final barricade before crossing 7th and going into MSG, a man guiding a wheelchair against the crowd called out.

"Excuse me... excuse me..." he shouted "Democrat coming through."

Now, I don't know if the crippled old man in the wheelchair was an actual Democrat or not, but I do know what the asshole behind me (O'Reilly wannabe pictured at right) shouted back.

"The river's right over there. Why don't you go dump him in for us."

I turned around and snapped his photo, saying that I just had to capture his image for posterity. He snapped back.

"Hey, middle-finger to you, buddy... we're Republicans."

Really? I couldn't tell from the bad suit, bad hair, bad shades, bad breath, bad attitude and...the faint scent of sulfur.

I'll never cease to be amazed at the way Republicans pretend that they are above things like cursing, but won't hesitate to suggest that a crippled old man in a wheelchair be dumped in a river because he's a Democrat. This, of course, explains why they have sex with animals and small children.

Anyway, I've been having fun exposing these assholes for what they are, so here is the jackass's photo. If you recognize him, congratulate him on being a supremely sick fuck next time you see him. What a wonderful and frighteningly accurate representation of the Republican ideal... drowning cripples.

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.
