I'm back - well, for tonight, tomorrow night, & Thursday night. Let's take care of a couple diary housekeeping issues while I'm still remembering!


Both this diary & the Countdown diary are taking Friday night off. Hubby & I are belatedly celebrating Valentine's Day because we were broke on the actual Valentine's Day, and I was sick anyway. So, I'm ditchin' y'all for a date! :D

Let's add some SPARK to our Tuesday. :) I know Presidents' Day was yesterday, but it's never too late for ice cream - or too cold or too early or... ;D If ya' wanna learn how to cuss someone out in 11 languages, talk to this guy! For those of you with domestic skills better than a gnat, here's your chance to cook for Marvin the Martian. :) But, fer SPARK's sake, don't fubar his dinner!


Finally, we now know where that infamous Holy Grail line came from. ;D

On with The Rachel Maddow Show!

"VICE Precedent" - In AK, HI, & some other states, Pat Robertson carried states in 1988. Ah, and the bat$hit factor begins its ensconcement. He went on to found the only - recently accredited Regent University.  Current VA Governor Bob McDonnell graduated from there & wrote a lovely thesis or document about the roll of women. He was an actual adult dude in his mid - 30s, so we can't blame this opus on being an 18 - year - old that didn't know any better. Gov. McDonnell's now just DYIN' to be the MENSA VP candidate. He was in MI for Mittens last night? HA! He may as well just get on his knees & start smooching some MENSA a$$. And, we're back to the state - sponsored rape down the pike in VA. So, if there is a Mrs. McDonnell, does she work outside the home? He was against various forms of discrimination before he was for them. VA also has a lovely personhood law in the coffers & have enacted laws to deny adoption rights to anyone not deemed good enough by the VA state legislature. Look at all the ladies at a protest about that vaginal ultrasound bill! Since when is Meghan McCentury a MENSA expert - just because Daddy's a Senator? She doesn't like the vaginal ultrasound bill but claims to be "pro life." A lot of evangelicals will like this stuff, but independents & most thinking feeling women feel or should feel uber oogy about all this $hit. Ms. McCentury's pro - birth control? Golly!

"The Enemy of My Enemy..." - As long as the anti - Mittens vote is split, Mittens still has a chance. So, Mittens probably just lurves Sheldon Adelson! Man on Dog's leading Mittens in WA. If Newt quits, Man on Dog's lead is even larger. The same holds true in MI. The same holds true in the "Show Me Your Papers" state. Mr. Adelson might not have been real thrilled about his coin was spent & might not have appreciated all the Mittens bashing; Newt can go after Man on Dog all he wants. Steve Kornacki gets billionaire duty. The MENSA primaries are heading toward the South in mid - March; that's Newtie's home base. Man on Dog might be shoring up his bat$hit evangelical creds for Southern voters? He already feels the way he's spewing; he doesn't need to shore them up!

"IOKIYAR" - Oh good Gawd, there's Not - My - Man Mitch again & with a Charlie White bonus addition! ;D Yea, the guy in charge of elections in my fair state was convicted of voter fraud. His sentencing hearing is the day after tomorrow, and if his charges are downgraded to misdemeanors, Mr. White could get his job back. Huh, and someone vaguely resembling me tweeted this fact to Ms. Rachel awhile ago. :D Senator Dick Lugar's being primaried by a tea bagger. IA MENSA members don't have to produce picture IDs to vote in their caucuses & such. 4 Senators sent a letter to the GAO about all these voting rights laws. Senator Bernie Sanders is one; man, you VT FOKRs are lucky to have him! Voter fraud isn't a huge problem at all, but lots of people would be affected by these draconian voter registration laws. Up to 21 million Americans might not have the sufficient ID to be able to vote. All these new voter laws are the dirty under belly of a post Citizens United world.

"No One's Default But His Own" -  Rachel reads transcripts of shows instead of watching the shows themselves. Mittens trashed Man on Dog's deficit ceiling votes in OH with Rob Portman by his side. AND, I believe Mr. Rob has his own debt ceiling history. BRILLIANT! Mittens didn't have a problem with debt ceilings during the 7 times it was raised in the GWB's reign of terror.

Man on Dog's got froth & dog pee in his docket? HA! And, the show's bought a DogPeeCan'tStopSantorum domain name! Cute. ;D Man on Dog still tells the dog whiz story? Lord...

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.
