I feel the need to bring to the attention of the DailyKos community an insidious plot executed on what must surely be the behalf of the Clinton campaign. I'm not exactly sure how they pulled this off as I'm not a technical person, but I just know it was them!

Exhibit A:

By portraying Kos as both black and white, Clinton is obviously trying to discredit Kos as overly sympathetic to, and unable to be critical of, her also half-black half-white opponent Barack Obama.

The true outrage though is this, Exhibit B:

In this example Clinton has clearly lightened Kos! And made him thinner too! What could her intent be here? An attempt to confuse us as to Kos' true ethnicity? I think the question she so cynically asks is this: Is a thin black/white man ready to be a political blogger and by implication is the nation ready for a thin black/white president?

We cannot let this stand people.

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.
