Ah yes, I remember it well...don't you? All the fake vile outrage about how Democrats weren't appropriately honoring Paul Wellstone by having a raucous celebratory service in his memory...Remember the days of outrage on talk radio on how the Democrat's conduct during the Wellstone furor was the worst thing ever done in American history. Some, in fact, felt it led to widespread Democratic losses in Congress in the 2002 election...

Here's a brief walk down memory lane to see how rethuglicans took advantage of it:

Good, now that I have refreshed your memory, let us return the favor FOR REAL this time and let Americans know how Republicans acted when it was time to honor another decent American servant, Tom Lantos, who survived the Holocaust.

How did Rethuglicans honor Lantos? Yes, by holding a vote during a memorial service.

In short, simply, shameful.

Remember Wellstone. Carry on his memory by letting America know how Republicans handled themselves just days after the death of Tom Lantos.

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.
