Sadly, this is my final animation for Daily Kos Comics. I'm going to be spending the next several months (at least through Election Day) writing "Disalmanac: A Compendium of Fact-Like Facts," which Perigee/Penguin will publish in 2013. It's a book based on my Twitter feed, podcast and blog.

I want to thank all the Daily Kos Comics cartoonists, but especially Mr. Tom Tomorrow for his hard work in creating and running Daily Kos Comics, and I also want to thank Tom and Markos for inviting me to do these animations for you. And I want to thank everybody in the Daily Kos community--keep up the great work! There's a LOT to be done!

After the cut: a transcript of Mr. Romney's remarks.

MITT ROMNEY: This is so much fun. It's so much fun running for president, I gotta tell ya. It is fun being here with you. This is kind of historic, you know that? To all be together on a, on a morning like this and uh, to be in the bright sunshine in a beautiful place and to be running for president with your help, we're doin' this together! This is not about me. This is not about me. You're not here because I'm some spectacular speaker, y'all know better than that. Yer. You're, you're not here just because the Republican Party is the answer to all things, you know better than that. You know instead this is America. And Amer, America is the answer to all good things, and we are caring about our country. We wanna get it on track again, to care for ourselves and for the people of the world that love liberty!

Chicken and uh, you know, noodles, it's vuh, there's good, good German food right here.

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.
