Hello, let me introduce myself. I am Mr. Forest. I am important to our political ecosystem. All of the trees you keep perseverating on, and bumping into are fine and dandy. But, I am the real deal.

Just to let you know, the Democratic primary (tree number 1) is not the general election. That would be me (i.e. the Forest).

And, I don't mean to jolt you into looking up, or anything, but your main opponent, John Sydney McCain, is now being formally advised by the most hated and ruthless political operative of our generation: Karl Rove.

Sorry to interrupt with that news. Go back to calling each other "Ken Starr" and "Monsters," and whining about this attack or that attack. Or, (ironically) calling each other "Rovian."

But the whole reason we are having a Democratic primary in the first place is to put a Democrat in the White House. And John Sydeny McCain [what white man names their son Sydney, anyway? Sheesh!] just established a working relationship with the guy who put George W. Bush there twice.

That is all.


The Forest.

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.
