How about a push poll asking people "If you knew that ..."

  • While John McCain was in Vietnam, he was given the best food and most comfortable quarters because the Vietnamese wanted him to be on their side after the war was over, and that he led the fight to get America to recognize the communist Vietnamese government
  • John McCain tried to avoid combat duty, and crashed five aircraft in hopes of being assigned a desk job
  • There is a videotape of John McCain saying that the problem with the explosive devices being used in Iraq is that they don't kill a soldier, but instead leave him wounded and a burden on taxpayers
  • John McCain's campaign is removing hospitalized veterans from the voter roles on the grounds that they do not meet residency requirements
  • John McCain sponsored a bill that would forbid any prosecution for rape unless there were two witnesses
... would that make you more likely, less likely, or about as likely to vote for him in November?"

"A lie can get around the world twice before the truth can get out of bed."  Why cede the Republicans that advantage?

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.
