And in case video isn't your thing, here's some of what we wrote yesterday about Mitt Romney's crash-and-burn trip to the U.K.:

As Andy Borowitz puts it:

Romney in London: "I never thought I'd say this, but I'm starting to miss the NAACP."

And to think, Romney's crew carefully arranged Mitt's trip so that he'd be able to skip out on his wife's dressage competition because they thought that was going to be his biggest liability. Little did they realize ... those fancy dancing horses ain't got nothing on Mitt's flapping lips.

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.
