This one just feels very different and could be the tipping point...the stuff before could be tied to policy, politics or the blackness of Obama. THIS ONE FEELS DIFFERENT............see video below!!  
If you agree...rec it and pass this around to ALL your friends, Please.

If we can somehow figure out a way to go deep and wide with this story....this may be the tipping point.  I talked to a lot of people at work and when they saw this and heard about it...their reaction was priceless...THEY COULD NOT FUCKING BELIEVE THAT THESE WERE AMERICANS, IN AMERICA.  No one could believe that fellow Americans were actually reacting like this to America losing something, especially like the Olympics, especially on foreign soil.

And the reaction was the same from liberals, centrists and conservatives, with no exception.  This one hit them in the gut!!  You see, this was not Limbaugh or Beck...although those videos were also seen by these people.  These were ordinary looking Americans CELEBERATING America losing.  This could not be written off to politics, policy or the blackness of Obama.  This was unpatriotic as far as they were concerned.  

This time the right may have over-reached.  They may have gone over the tipping point.  They may have given us the exact thing we have been waiting for to expose them to the rest of the population.  This was truly reprehensible for all those in the center who have been silently watching what has been going on.  You already have people in the Republican party who are revolting against the lunatic fringe(Graham, Frum et al).  

WE SHOULD DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO HELP THEM OVER THE TIPPING POINT WITH THIS!!!

From the Huffpost:
"Upon being informed of the news, a gathering of conservatives at the Americans For Prosperity -- one of the main organizing groups behind the tea party protests -- erupted in applause. They cheered once more after they were told that Chicago had been eliminated during the first round of voting. The moment was captured on video (below) and reported by Hotline On Call:

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.
