This is funny:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s critics are already in full-blown campaign mode 17 months before the 2010 election.

A conservative political action committee known as Our Country Deserves Better PAC launched an attack Monday that quotes Ronald Reagan criticizing the Nevada Democrat back in 1986. The ad, which will run on Nevada radio and TV stations, says Reid is “emblematic of all that’s wrong in Washington.”

I'm no fan of Harry Reid, but seriously, is this the best his opponents can do? A twenty-three year old criticism from a man who's been dead for five years? Republicans really need to stop living in the past (or not).

And on a comical side note, the head of the group running the ad is former California Assemblyman Howard Kaloogian, the moron who in 2006, ran a photo on his campaign website of a busy Baghdad street that proved how "calm" and "stable" Iraq was ... unfortunately for Kaloogian, a Daily Kos user found a picture of the same street, located in Istanbul, Turkey. Kaloogian lost.

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.
