Just a random thought:

When Democrats were depressed after losing the last Presidential race; they dreamed of moving to a country that more reflected their values; i.e. Canada.

If the Republicans lose the House and/or Senate on Tuesday, where would they dream of moving? What country would embrace their warlike, financially irresponsible, homo and xenophobic, ideologically driven agenda?

What country approves of the government overruling medical decisions you made for your family and deciding what you can do in the privacy of your bedroom? What country can they move to where the citizens are so short sighted that they would push the tax burdens of today onto their children because they don't like taxes? What country could they move to that would embrace their fervor for building walls around the nation? What backward nation could they find that would put religious superstitions before real science?

I've given about 2-3 minutes of serious thought to this issue. And I offer this advise to my friends in the GOP.

The best choice for depressed Republicans on Tuesday is to move to Libya. Moammar Qaddafi offers Republicans the kind of government they desire and deserve. And if the idea of living with all those black people in Africa is too distressing for Republicans, there's always North Korea. They already have a fence on their southern border fortified with razor wire and 2 kilometers of land mines. The North Koreans and Republicans share the same fondness for walls between nations. Its a natural match. Of course the GOP loves Iraq so Baghdad remains a possibility too. They could even move into Saddam's old Republican Palace. They wouldn't even have to change to signs.

I make this offer to any depressed Republicans on Tuesday night-- if you want to move, call me. I'll buy you a ticket.

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.
