T-shirt Contest in the Comments!

QUESTION: Whose silhouette is used as the third Romney SCOTUS appointee? There's a hidden but perhaps probable message in it. (Hint, the silhouette is of a male). Give it your best figuring! If this post hits the rec list, the first person with the correct answer in the comments gets a t-shirt sent to the, one they choose from among these shirt designs. I'll reveal the person and announce the winner in the comments by Sunday June 3 at 5PM CST.

The winner is Jack K, who correctly identified the silhouette as belonging to Joseph Smith, Jr. (see picture here), the founder of Romney's church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Momonism). Jack K, please email me at to collect your shirt. Honorable mention goes to Uncle Igor, who guessed it was the Sesame Street character Big Bird. Seriously, that was just hilarious, and looking at the silouhette--well, sheesh, okay, good guess! :-)


This poster may seem partisan to some Occupy purists, and Occupy Wall Street [New York]'s stated position is to be non-partisan, although not all regional Occupy movements adhere to that. But look at the poster again. It doesn't actually take a position. It presents two scenarios and asks, "Any Questions?" The poster is the work of its designer and should be considered internal Occupy criticism against an arguably inane notion among some Occupiers that Republicans and Democrats are equivalent and that voting does not matter. Obviously, the designer of this poster shows otherwise.

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.
