For my summer job, I'm going to be working for Democracy and Free Speech!

Who cares about health care, thanks to the conservatives on the Supreme Court, there are plenty of jobs like mine to go around!

I'll be working with lots of neat grownups who are very passionate about having plenty of free speech!

Like, like, Mister Adelson-- who is going to spend one-hundred-million speech units because he loves America so much!

Or the Koch Brothers, who are spending four-hundred million speech units!

I guess the super-rich really are job creators!  

([faster aside, not whisper]:  As long as your job is creating campaign commercials.)

And, and, I'll be able to get community service credit for school because I'll be working with "Social Welfare Organizations" like Crossroads GPS-- which is headed by the Mother Teresa of Attack Ads, Mister Karl Rove!

We're doing such good, noble social welfare work, our funders want to be kept secret!  They're that selfless!

And even though they only have half as much money, I'll also be working with the Obamacrats, whose "Priorities USA" has millions in free speech units--  that aren't connected to the campaign, of course . . .

[now, whisper] except by the campaign manager and top advisers.

Free speech is such a growth industry, it's on track to hit two billion speech units this campaign.

[big breath]

And I've got a summer job because corporations are people and money is free speech and some people have more free speech than others the end!

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.
