The photos of Republican Party Head Honchos meeting in shady backrooms to get nekkid and roll their sweaty and corpulent bodies over helpless baby ducks may even now be getting  developed...

* Hurricane Isaac may have been synchronized by HARRP to strike the moment the keynote speaker flubs his first line...
* The "dead girls and and live boys" may well have appointments with destiny...
* A bus full of nuns could be set by fate  for the set-piece multi vehicle collision...
* An Elephant may exist who has been fully vetted and conditioned to break from the keeper's grasp and rampage in a shitstorm over the podium and dignitaries at the most opportune moment...
* All the swatches and color schemes could well have already been selected for the televised hotel banquet hall bun throwing and baked bean bacchanalia food fight scene...
* All the slack jawed tea-party type and tight-rectummed Paulites somehow secretly drilled in hand-to-hand combat techniques with bullwhips and Hostess Snack Cakes for the floor show...
* The corpses of Goldwater, Nixon, and Reagan miraculously acquired and spray painted in gold and fitted with animatronics (gotta love that Disney!) for the Zombie-Morning-in-America Salute to Past Campaign Death Marches and yet... yet... yet...

I can't help feeling that nothing will ever ever top this past week when it comes to total FUBAR Satisfaction!

 Oh Schadenfreude - is there nothing you can't do?

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.

    when I used to watch the TV show "That Was The Week That Was" (aka TW3). I don't think I understood half the jokes, if that many. But it made me laugh.

    Here's what it looked like (and yes, that's David Frost who had a regular role on the show):

      One was on BBC.  There was also an American version on NBC which featured David Frost, Henry Morgan, Mike Nichols, Elaine May, and Tom Lehrer.  I can't see the picture.  Which one is shown?

      •  I guess it's the BBC version (0+ / 0-)

        There's a BBC logo at the beginning. A very young David Frost is in it.

        I didn't know there was an American and a British version.

        Hey, I just realized that maybe the reason I liked it was the show was funny. The audience would laugh and my parents would laugh and then my mother or father would explain the joke to me (about Goldwater or Red China or The War on Poverty or whatever). When you're a kid, you're trying very hard to learn how to be a grownup. You're learning language and history and current events. If you have good parents who explain things, it makes growing up a little bit easier.
