Please note I'm not posting this, my maiden diary, to attract snarky remarks or to get sent to the political lightweight corner. You good people are wonderful and often hilarious with your comments. Truly, I've laughed to the point of tears with some of the wise cracks and comebacks I've read here. Here's hoping y'all will have a little fun with what I'm about to reveal. But it sure did spook me.  

So, without further ado and with due respect to the Kos rules of brevity...

Sometimes – this is serious now – and this only happens on a Blue Moon, I'll get this sudden flash in my mind; it's like a fleeting premonition. There are times, my friends, when these premonitions have come true, days, even months, later. I saw McCain wearing that cheesy smile, walking along with a new spring in his diminuitive gait. Then came the frightening picture. He has just been informed that the FIX is in! The machines, and carefully targeted purging, he is told, will ensure his victory on November 4. He will carry Ohio, Florida, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, Colorado and Georgia. He feels all warm inside. He is whispering to himself, "All hail to the new Commander in Chief."

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.
