Today, Mr. Cranberrylib received a fundraising letter from the Republican Party. Which, given the overwhelmingly one-sided political slant of our cozy household, is hilarious in the extreme.

I thought y'all would enjoy the email he shot off a few minutes later:

Dear National Republican Congressional Committee --

Today I received something called the "2010 Republican Party Precinct Survey" in the mail, with a fundraising letter headed "Dear Fellow Republican." It gave me a chuckle because I am not and never will be a registered or even unregistered Republican.

Please be sure to remove me from whatever database I accidentally got placed on, because sending me further mailings is just a waste of your money and, more importantly, a waste of our precious natural resources.


Mr. Cranberrylib

A left-wing, Obama-voting, tax-paying, New York Times- and Daily Kos-reading, health-care-supporting, pro-gay-marriage, pro-choice, registered Democrat.

P.S.: The bank bailout that your letter goes on and on about was signed into law by President Bush in October 2008. It's true! You can look it up. Just figured I'd let you know, since you seem to have forgotten and are blaming it all on the Democrats.

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.
