I just loved MinistryofTruth's diary, Grayson EXPLODES on GOP: "America doesn't CARE about your feelings" Man On Fire! airing Rep. Alan Grayson's latest takedown of the Republicans. (And yes, I'm pimping that diary because it deserves to be watched!)

He had some rousing examples of how the Republicans would twist any accomplishment President Obama might achieve:

"American understands that there is one party in this country that is favor of health care reform and one party that is against it, and they know why."

   "They understand that if Barack Obama were somehow able to cure hunger in the world the Republicans would blame him for overpopulation"

   "They understand that if Barack Obama could somehow bring about world peace they would blame him for destroying the defense industry."

   "In fact, they understand that if Barack Obama has a BLT sandwhich tommorrow for lunch, they will try to ban bacon."

So I thought maybe we can come up with a list that Mr. Grayson can use in some more fiery speeches:

For instance:

- The American people understand that if Barack Obama announced cures for cancer and AIDS, the Republicans would accuse him of promoting smoking and unprotected sex (h/t to my husband, who's been saying this for weeks).

- They understand that if Barack Obama announced that all the troops are coming home from Afghanistan, the Republicans would claim it's to declare martial law in the United States.

- They understand that if Barack Obama revealed he's allergic to eggs, the Republicans would accuse him of discrimination against chickens.

- They understand that if NASA found water on the moon, the Republicans would claim Obama pressured the scientists. And just one more ...

- They understand that if Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, the Republicans would rather side with Al Qaeda than admit the rest of the world admires him and applauds our choice of president!

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.
