Republicans Denounce Super Bowl Commercial

Republicans have taken issue with a Super Bowl commercial that aired for the popular website Groupon, which showed the struggles in Tibet and abruptly cut to a man in a restaurant eating Tibetan food. Conservative commentators argue that Tibet does not exist, and "companies shouldn't lie to average Americans like that."

Outback Steakhouse Scandal Blows Over

Last month's exposé by WJLA ABC 7 news in Washington DC has exploded into a non-event after the steaks at Outback Steakhouse were proven to consist of 7% steak and 93% wheat germ. When a reporter asked a customer what she thought about this scandal, she responded with "If Jesus ain't want us to eat it, He wouldn't have opened this fine establishment!" While most customers seemed unfazed by the revelation, local reporters were told to be outraged.

Obama Narrowly Leads Pie Among Kossacks For 2012

Last week, The Weatherdude Weekly privately and randomly contacted 4,500 Kossacks to see for whom they would vote if a 2012 Democratic Presidential Primary were held right that very minute. The results were interesting:

Incumbent Democratic President Barack Obama received 38% of the vote, narrowly leading pie, which received a whopping 37% of the vote. Other names mentioned were Bernie Sanders (15%), Hillary Clinton (6%), Bill in Portland Maine (2%), Not Pie (1%), and Ralph Nader also receiving his usual 1%. If Pie overcomes Obama and clinches the nomination, commentators speculate there will be a fierce debate between All-American Apple Pie and sketchy Key Lime pie to run under the "Pie" ticket. The President was too busy eating his competitor to comment.

George Bush Cancels Trip To DK4

George Bush has cancelled a scheduled trip to DK4 after finding out he could face arrest if he comes near the website. Unfortunately, he's too dumb to realize that if he came here during a flame war, nobody would notice.

That is all the news for today, see you next time. From all of us here at the Weatherdude Weekly, good night.

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.
