8:48 PM PT: Hahahaha, they just don't get it;

Krauthammer:  speech "a giant swing and miss."  Seems drunker than usual tho.  "One of strangest speeches ever."

Shouldn't be to surprised. After all, this asshole wanted the Iraq war. And thought Bush's tax cuts made sense. And wanted to impeach Clinton as president.

AP's lede: "In an impassioned speech that rocked the Democratic National Convention..."

Okay, it's late. Maybe they're just tired. We'll let them try again in the morning. But still, LOL! 9:07 PM PT (Kaili Joy Gray):
This may be the first time in 2012 that I've had trouble getting a Romney statement that mentions Bill Clinton ...

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.
