Let's change the vernacular on the McCain program. It's time to change the way we refer to John S. McCain. To start with, let's go after his strongest symbolism, "The Maverick".

Now I understand the limitations of the "kos" environment to displaying certain symbols, but utilizing Word™ and other word processing programs, it’s possible to change the vernacular of the McCain/Palin program.

Trademark, that little ™ after a word, symbol, or concept. When one thinks about John McCain, one thinks about the often thrown out term "Maverick."

What if every time the word "Maverick" when associated with John McCain, was used, we inserted ™?

Let’s go on the offensive and change the rules. John McCain is known as the "Maverick™" So let’s let him be the maverick™ every time we talk about him.

Highlight that ™ symbol. Make him into a caricature of his own mind.

How do you do that within the limitations of the Kos environment? Simple, write the post in Word or another text processor, select Insert from your tool bar, select symbol, click on ™ and copy and paste into your post.

Once you’ve written your post, select all to copy, and paste into your post.

The important thing is to trademark the whole McCain (I’m a Maverick™) into nonsense obscurity.

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.
