A joyous Sunday to all! If the world ever does end up hanging by a thread, let's hope it's this one. To the links!

  • The Huffington Post recaps Obama's performance at the White House Corespondents Dinner. The jabs at John McCain and Sarah Palin are especially delicious.
  • A Democratic Congressman was arrested! But before Drudge dies of excitement, it was Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) engaging in a nonviolent protest at the White House fence.
  • According to Senator Mark Warner (D-VA), he could have the votes to get the Wall Street reform bill to reinstate the so-called depression-era "Glass-Steagall" regulations, which require separation between commercial banking and investment banking. It's strange that right now, the Senate seems to be shaping up to be more progressive than the House when it comes to financial regulation.
  • Have you voted in DFA's Netroots Nation scholarship contest yet?
  • EMILY's list founding President Ellen Malcolm is retiring after 25 years at the helm. Her successor will be Stephanie Schriock, the finance director for Howard Dean's presidential run.
  • The era of the "Moonie Times" is at an end: as a consequence of a familial dispute among the successors to the vast Unification Church fortune, the church's  $35 million per annum stipend to the Washington Times has been slashed significantly, and the paper will be put up for sale.
  • Digby is righteously indignant--and rightfully so--about what passed for news yesterday.

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.
