Wow. I'm officially .... just wow.

It takes a mountain full of audacity to say ANYTHING to get elected or to score political points.

I remember Clarence Thomas, a man who benefitted from Affirmative Action yet sneered at civil rights or any other political movement that helped black people, call his confirmation "a lynching" when it was politically convenient.

I've seen Jonah Goldberg argue for elitism and then backtrack against it when applied to Sen. Obama.

I've seen the racist and sexist Pat Buchanan, who told a black female pundit to "shut up" while on MSNBC, defend feminism and assail the media for being "sexist" against Sen. Palin.

I heard John McCain say he was bringing change to Washington even though ... uh ... he voted against change 90 percent of the time, then defended the status quo and then ridiculed change when it came from the black guy and now is .... wait for it ... calling himself a change agent.

But this is too much. I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Currently I'm just sitting here in amasement.

Sen. Obama. Who you call the most liberal Senator in GAZILLION years. A Democrat. A black man with an African father and white mother and scary terrorist middle name. Is more of the same?

Wow. I have to hand it to Republicans and Conservatives. You guys will say. Any. Thing. ANYTHING!

If John McCain had to cut an album with Akon and 50 Cent to win, he'd do it. If Steve Schmidt had to dress like Beetlejuice and steal Halloween candy from small children, he'd do it.

These people. Do. Not. Care.

It would be admirable if it weren't so disgusting.

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.
