yup, apparently if you can't defend spending ridiculous amounts of campaign donations on madame moosealini's shopping spree, attack Obama for such outrageous expenditures as using his campaign plane to fly to Hawaii to visit his ailing Grandma. Apparently he should be flying commercial instead of using a plane paid for with campaign money while simultaneously single handedly destroying the environment. Video over at Huffpost: Brad Blakeman in true asshat form!
Transcript via Gangster Octopus:

Barack Obama "taking a 767 campaign plane to go visit Grandma. Forget about the energy that is wasted, what about the hundreds of thousands of dollars to take a private trip when this guy should be humping his bags on a commercial plane or taking a smaller plane. Taking a 767 of campaign money from people who could least afford it is more of an outrage in my opinion.

I don't know about you, but as one of Barack's shady 3.1 million donors I'm more than happy to help fund this trip to visit the woman who raised him when she's seriously ill.

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.
