Can you use a humor break right now?  Gawker did a hilarious liveblog of the TP debate on CNN.  

I'll just provide a few snippets but go to Gawker to read the whole thing:

8:11 — They're briefly introducing themselves. "I'm Mitt Romney. I live in a monster-sized loafer atop Mount Voldemort." "I'm Rick Perry. I kilt a man." "I'm Herman Cain. I know literally nothing about politics." These are paraphrases.

8:13 — First question from a Jacksonville Tea Party member: How will you destroy Medicare and Social Security without losing an election in a great hellball of fury?
8:15 — Michele Bachmann: I will repeal everything, because I'm the great repealer!
8:37 — Tea Party lady from Virginia asks what they would do to help the economy. GREAT USE OF THE TEA PARTY HERE.
8:38 — Jon Huntsman has now mentioned both heroin and Kurt Cobain in this debate. He better mention Alice in Chains by the end of the night, to avoid the snub of the century.
8:59 — Rick Perry, who would double down on a claim that Nickelback is a good band if he had the opportunity, obviously doubles down on his claim that Ben Bernanke might be guilty of "treason."

Is the CNN/KKK debate next week?

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.
