  • What you missed on Sunday Kos ...
  • Pssst, Rick, those "opponents" are called voters ... as for the "out-of-state special interests"? Pot, kettle:
    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker slammed his opponents Monday for pushing a recall election in his state, calling it a “distraction and “frivolous” waste of government funds.

    Walker blamed “out-of-state special interests” for spending “tens of millions” to push him out of office.

  • Comedy. The latest call for a savior to step in and save the Republican dream of taking back the White House:
    While Christie and Bush might be fine candidates, perhaps the Republicans should consider a more inspired and game-changing pick: Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
  • Yeah, yeah, it's juvenile, but come on, this is a funny headline (via Hullabaloo):
    Santorum comes from behind in Alabama three-way
  • A photo of a gay Marine's joyful homecoming has gone viral. Semper Fi.
  • Politics are out, so maybe Sarah Palin can try acting ... or not:
    The former vice presidential candidate was nominated Saturday for a Golden Raspberry Award as worst actress for her “performance” in the documentary “The Undefeated,” a film about her political career.
  • No clue as to why this wasn't a hate crime and would love to know why it wasn't terrorism:
    A federal jury on Friday found one of two white supremacist brothers guilty in the 2004 bombing of a black city official in suburban Phoenix, but stopped short of finding that it was a hate crime. [...]

    The jury found Dennis Mahon guilty of three charges in the bombing but found his identical twin brother Daniel Mahon not guilty of the one charge he faced ...

    They [the prosecutors] played surveillance tapes of the brothers referring to Logan in racial slurs and a voicemail that Dennis Mahon left at the diversity office just months before the bombing in which he angrily said: "The white Aryan resistance is growing in Scottsdale. There's a few white people who are standing up."

  • A diverse list:
    A total of 231 nominees are up for the Nobel Peace Prize this year, the Nobel Institute said Monday, with Bill Clinton, Helmut Kohl, the EU and US soldier and WikiLeaks suspect Bradley Manning known to be on the list.

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.
