Ok...I haven't watched morning Joe in months mainly because it just gives me high blood pressure. But today over at TPM Grade A Smackdown they had an awesome clip of how Democrats should have been talking about and framing the healthcare reform issue all year long.  Of course Joe was doing his usual of setting up the Republican talking points for the day, trying to cut-off any real Democratic points, Peggy Noonan was co-signing in her most above the fray voice, and Mika looking like she just took a Xanax (she is such a poor excuse for intelligent women everywhere). Weiner wasn't having any of it. He was calm, patient,and MAGNIFICENT!! He (and Rep. Alan Grayson) just need to start scheduling appointments right NOW on teaching Democrats how to not only push back HARD but frame the issues whatever they are.  This was a thing of beauty.  The fireworks started around the 8 minute mark. So, settle in, get your popcorn, and send Rep. Weiner a donation if you can.  He's one of the good guys.

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.
