Since it's the first of the month...

Do I know my audience, or DO I KNOW MY AUDIENCE?! :D

Let's look back on previous May 1sts. On this date in 1967, Elvis Presley married Priscilla Beaulieu in Las Vegas. "The Presleys have left the building; thank you & good night!" On this date in 2003...well...we got this $hit.

We've got a perfect transition to SPARK! I've finally solved the GWB mystery. Heaven bless "the South" because no one else should. This chic knows how to par - tay! Finally, this young woman can roar & probably understands that whole Theory of Relativity thing.

On with The Rachel Maddow Show!

"'Let Us Remember Why We Came Here'" - Shoe tossin' to GWB - LOVE IT! President Obama made a surprise trip to Afghanistan today; the main purpose was to sign an agreement on a withdrawal timetable with their president. I heard on NPR today that news of President Obama's visit had actually been leaked in Afghanistan; I hope some heads roll for that! There won't be any permanent bases there nor will our people have to stick around to patrol cities or anything. So, I wonder if the fishes who ate OBL are still swimming around, or are they sleeping with the fish that ate OBL? :D I didn't hear the news about OBL's death until the next morning; my morning radio silly guys told me! Ugh...I wasn't counting seeing THAT clip of GWB. *&^%$#@! The previous administration completely lost track of OBL after he escaped to Pakistan in late 2001. This administration has radically increased the use of drones; the troop levels tripled, too. OK, now Rachel Maddow peeps are peeking into my diary drafts; I brought up "Mission Accomplished" first! ;D Oye'...I'm not sure how much more of this history lesson I can take. GWB's PR invasion peep is now Mittens PR "make war with everyone" policy. Steve Clemons probably has a hell of a lot of good stuff to say about the day's activities. President Obama is now officially in the process of ending the other war started by the previous administration. When President Obama was Candidate Obama, he said that we dropped the ball too soon on the OBL/Afghanistan/Pakistan activity, so why is anyone really surprised he refocussed our strength there? Candidate Obama said Iraq was a stupid war.

"IOKIYAR" - A Dem POTUS can't use 9/11 material in campaign ads; only MENSA candidates and POTUSs can use 9/11 material in campaign ads. DICK & Senator McCentury confirmed that. Y'all remember Senator McCentury's secret plan to get OBL that he wouldn't reveal unless he won? Country first my a$$! How the spark does Senator McCentury "know how to win wars"?! Mittens is "disappointed" that President Obama's making political hay out of offing OBL. Later, Mittens & America's Mayor were in New York City with fire fighters.

"The Interview" - Paul Krugman is president of the Rep. Paul Ryan Fan Club. ;D Mr. Paul thinks we're in more of a depression than a recession - especially during the horrific economic meltdown. The gap between the very rich & the very poor is more wide than ever. Congress is more partisan than ever, too. Dr. Paul's in studio with Rachel. The most vulnerable get hurt the most quickly in bad economic times. Admitting the government can fix a depression would involve MENSA folk admitting that there are some things government CAN DO & do well. Economists who have been proven right in all this economic crap don't get to win constructive arguments over the issue because stupid & willfully ignorant is the new smart & curious in among the MENSA politicos. Thank you GWB & $aint $arah from Wasilla! *&^%$#@! Mr. Krugman's looking for politicians "with good hearts"?! Oh honey... the Cubs will win the World Series before you find one of those. Government employees & other public employees must be put back to work to boost their economic impact. Bad debt from the housing bubble hasn't been handled well. 

"Delegate Than Never" - The soap opera known as As the MENSA Delegate Math Turns continues on; Rep. Ron Paul delegates showed up en masse in both MA & LA to support their guy! Rep. Paul peeps even made their way up to Alaska. I wonder if they visited $aint $arah from Wasilla? ;D So, if IA caucus results mean exactly jack & $hit as far as actually winning delegates, and the caucus was seriously sparked up, why the *&^%$#@! does IA still get to go first in all this $hit?! Rep. Paul could actually get put into nomination at the MENSA convention; don't let that popcorn burn, boys & girls!

"Red Flag" - Politico thought some union flag was behind President Obama in WI; it was the WI state flag, ya' maroons! Do we get another Rachel rant against Politico?! YEA! I'll have to look up that new dictionary definition of "forward" to see if Marx, Lenin, Mao, etc. are mentioned. ;D "Forward!" is on WI's state flag?! HA!

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.
