  If you haven't yet seen the Sunday Funnies, Doonesbury is a must-see today. With just a handful of words and only 8 panels, Trudeau absolutely demolishes the argument "America needs someone with business experience in the White House."

   Today's strip is a keeper. I only wonder how many papers will be afraid to run it, and how many angry letters will be written demanding they dump the strip entirely. If you've ever wanted something to send to your conservative relatives, or people who don't understand why running government like a business is a recipe for disaster, this strip will do it.

   Thank you Garry Trudeau!

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.
