I preface this by saying, got a complaint about me, go ahead. Diarize, comment, whatever (actually those first two are your only choices - there is no 'whatever'). There's a chance I'll ignore it, there's a chance I'll agree with it, but usually I'll respond to it and try to explain or at least address it. I'd say "Bring It On," but that doesn't necessarily have the same meaning it used to.

However, be forewarned: you may be part of a plan to make it look like I'm under siege by the Left.

Step 1: Trollish person writes over-the-top critical diary (in this case, on the Mark Sanford email reading).
Step 2: Lots of defense of your undersigned diarist (thank ye).
Step 3: RW website writes piece quoting this here site: "By Wednesday, even critics on the left said Olbermann had gone too far."

The site is the clownish NewsMax, which is basically in charge of putting up stuff for lesser RW sites to cut-and-paste.

Please to enjoy:

"Keith Olbermann made Rush Limbaugh look like Albert Schweitzer tonight on his program," wrote Larry Wohlgemuth on The Daily Kos site. "Have you no decency man?"

Wohlgemuth made his dislike for Sanford plain, calling him "the worst of what the Republican Party has to offer and the antithesis of anything this country might need." Yet he lambasted Olbermann for not considering that Sanford's wife and children might well be watching his program.

"It was the kind of childish and hurtful thing done by 12-and 13-year olds, and Olbermann should know better," he wrote.

No, I ain't linking to these doggies.

Again, no request for amnesty, agreement, criticism-free zones, or universal love is implied here. Just watch out: there's nothing better for the lunatic fringe when a Mark Sanford hits an iceberg, than to throw up some phony Liberal-on-Liberal-Violence sabotage chaff in front of the torpedos headed towards a Republican-In-Crisis.

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.
