Chris Wallace at Fox News asked Michele Bachmann if she is a flake. I think that's an insult to the fine folks at Kellogg's.

She announced her presidency from Waterloo—a name synonymous with victory.

It is a perfect mix of disappointment, it has a dash of sadness, a smidgen of disbelief, all with just a hint of 'Why the fuck am I in this shot?

          Yeah, I took that out of context. Trust me, it didn't make any sense.

AMW's only chance for survival was an infusion of capital from the government into local projects, something Romney opposed. Its collapse was classic creative destruction -- there simply wasn't business for the plant to do anymore. If you're against bailouts, as Romney is, and you're for bankruptcies and restructing in failing industries, as Romney is, how exactly were you going to save AMW? You weren't.
Dave Weigel.
I didn't say that things are worse.
Mitt Romney, last Thursday, walking back what he said during the last Republican debates.
The recession is deeper because of our president.

          He's a flip-flop-flipper.

As I said from the beginning, I planned to take full responsibility for any mistakes that I have made, and I have done so today.

I plan to read Breitbart’s book if I can get a review copy or find it in my library’s humor section.
—News Hounds Aunty Em, who Andrew Breitbart blocked on Twitter for her comment.
I was walking down the street in New York, starving, and I hadn't eaten all day, and I went into a restaurant, and all the calorie counts are there, courtesy of New York City Government, New York State Government, the Feds are getting involved... and it was a complete buzzkill. I wanted a double-decker cheeseburger, and I ended up not getting it. This is the government saying, "We know better than you".
Monica Crowley.

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.
