It's the day you've been waiting for, patriots! Today marks the debut of the fifth and final chapter of The War of the Words: The Story of the 101st Fighting Keyboarders, the groundbreaking documentary series that honors the true heroes of the war in Iraq: the conservative bloggers, pundits, and commentators who've kept the home fires burning in the face of opposition from liberals and other traitors.

In Part IV, "Democracy Threatens," we followed the grueling 2004 campaign season from its beginnings in the cornfields of Iowa to the landslide 50.7% victory of President George W. Bush. Now, in Part V, we catch up on the activities of the 101st Fighting Keyboarders from Election Night to the present day, as they help their President fend off Cindy Sheehan's Siege of Crawford and hunker down in the face of yet another election.

Watch Part V: "Clear Skies Ahead" (5:53)

Well, that about wraps things up. I'll be posting a YouTube version of part IV later today, and part V in about a week. As time permits, I'll also put together all 5 parts into a single presentation, in case you have half an hour or so to burn and want to watch the whole thing at once. Keep an eye on the War of the Words Blog for developments.

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.
