Another of my late night Pacific Daylight Time Diaries...

I was peacefully going around the blogosphere, minding my own business, when something Arianna Huffington wrote kicked in my adrenaline: the whole post is here.

Well, a lot of it was just a bunch of words, but one particular phrase got my attention (the adrenaline part):

"So now, as the president prepares to preempt Deal or No Deal to lay out his new plan for Iraq in prime time on Wednesday night (and wouldn't it be great if we could all collectively shout "No deal! No deal!!" at him through our TVs?),

It got me thinking: why stop at shouting at the TV?  Why not shout out"No deal!"  all across the country, throughout the MSM, the Blogosphere, local letters to the editors, Congress and Senate critters (sorry about the 6 legs), using those two words to express our national unity on this cause.

Can we do it?  Can we send out our opinions across the nation to countless media outlets, congressional representatives and senators, and multiply them by re-laying this to all the blogs we know - within 36 hours?  Of course we can, and you betcha the MSM and the country WILL take notice.

Headline: "NO DEAL!"

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.
