Fun show today! We welcomed DemFromCT back from jury duty, and covered some fascinating ground today, including the National Journal's "Conversation Nation" discussed in today's APR. I think this thing has some serious disruptive potential, not unlike the ability of 2008's post-debate "snap polls" to force the pundits off their pre-determined narratives. Listen to the segment and find out why.

We also discussed the craziness surrounding the Chick-Fil-A "Appreciation Days," and how anti-gay activists feel sure they've tapped into America's true fighting spirit by getting people to eat fried chicken sandwiches.

Finally, a look at a really interesting Bloomberg News article that shows how class warfare gets fought stealthily from above, disguised in the seemingly innocuous language of what purports to be outcome-neutral and dispassionate analysis, but really isn't outcome-neutral at all. It's built from the ground up to be conclusory. And surprise! It benefits the wealthy Wall Street rip-off artists most of all!

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.
