I can't decide which Republican-Approved excuse rationale I'll be using tonight:

(A) I was going to have someone retroactively handle Top Comments tonite. ::Romney rules, so this one always works::

(B) I had someone scheduled for tonite. ::Ryan rules, which means I'm totally lying about this but am saying it as if it were factually true::

(C) I've apologized for not having a diarist tonite, but I think we need to put the past behind us and move forward. ::Generic Republican rules, squelching further discussion::

But I'm a Democrat, so here's my statement: "I forgot to check the calendar and didn't notice we were sans diarist until 7:30. My bad."  

Follow me below the dingledoodlesquiggliedKosagnocchidividerthingie fold for the Tops, after a word from our sponsor...

Here at Top Comments we strive to nourish community by rounding up some of the site's best, funniest, most mojo'd & most informative commentary, and we depend on your help!! If you see a comment by another Kossack that deserves wider recognition, please send it either to topcomments at gmail or to the Top Comments group dKosemailbox by 9:30pm Eastern. Please please please include a few words about why you sent it in as well as your user name (even if you think we know it already :-)), so we can credit you with the find!  

Brillig's ObDisclaimer: The decision to publish each nomination lies with the evening's Diarist and/or Comment Formatter. My evenings at the helm, I try reeeeallllyy hard to publish everything without regard to content. I really do, even when I disagree personally with any given nomination. "TopCommentness" lies in the eyes of the nominator and of you, the reader - I leave the decision to you. I do not publish self-nominations (ie your own comments) and if I ruled the world, we'd all build community, supporting and uplifting instead of tearing our fellow Kossacks down.
From maybeeso in michigan:
This comment by Ptolemy is an amazing look at every 75 years of our history from 1864.
From Pam from Calif:
Hilarious comment from PorridgeGun.

Another great comment/comic by JekyllnHyde

Dood Abides the master of snark& photoshop.  

From Puddytat:
Here's a goodie by Mindful Nature. It speculates what might have happened to our traditional media that is now reporting on the lies that the GOP have been telling with ever increasing frequency.

Here, in 2 sentences and thanks to Thomas Twinnings, is what the GOP thinks of the truth.

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.
