I am LOVING the GOP Madness "Lowlights of the RepubliCon Primary" Competition, and have voted in a bunch of the contests, if not all.

Here's what I'm hoping for the final round. And here's why.

This isn't a huge diary, but pure horse-race fun and some side commentary thrown in . . . past the dancing 8s.

Granted, this is not a whole hell of a lot of diary. . . . .

I would LOVE to see a final bout of the audience booing the gay soldier, versus audience shouting "Let him die!".

If you look at the northwest and southeast corners of the brackets, you'll notice that it's quite possible.

I think very few of the other lowlights have the same resonance, publicly, as the picture of the GOoPer audience itself. We spend a lot of time, righteously, giving the 'Cons' leadership the business, and calling out the figureheads at the front of the movement.

Frankly, it's time some of that harsh, glaring, mirror usually reserved for Limbaugh, Palin, Norquist, et al., got turned on the "average folks" who make up the overwhelming majority of the conservative movement.  I think DailyKos, with its national platform, is the perfect place to do just that.  We've been letting the people in the RepubliCon grassroots off the hook, and it's time to turn the harsh light of reality upon them.

PLEASE vote for "Booing the gay soldier" today, and when its turn comes up, vote for the audience shouting "Let him die," too.

This would be a truly damning picture of what today's GOP has become.

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.
