This diary is in direct response, not to the diary itself so much, as to the number of people who have recommended it. Below are my comments in that diary (which I will not link to), because I simply would like to be on record, and provide a forum for other who want to do the same, for being AGAINST that which would undermine the power which the Democratic Party is lined up to obtain in November, and/or anytime thereafter.

In response to the full frontal assualt on Ben Domenech's plagarism:

I plagarized when I was at college, too (gasp). Also, drank LOTS of beer and (gasp) smoked a lot of fucking dope, too. What's the fucking point? College kids are nukcing futs? Who knew!

Gotcha politics, at such a low level, is not a game we want to set a precedent for given how fucking marginal many dems are. When they get power in November, we won't like the lowest common denominator anymore.

I've not signed up for, "By any means necessary". This is truly a short sighted diary, and I am saddened that the "community" would recommend it, just on the basis of the "community's" self-interest alone.

We cannot fight injustice, dishonesty, and hypocrisy with our own injustice, dishonesty, and hypocrisy.

Such base politicing does not serve Democrat/liberal/progressive interests.

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.
