Wed Sep 05, 2012 at  9:21 PM PT (David Nir): Remember that convention speech Bill Clinton gave? Man that was good.

Wed Sep 05, 2012 at  9:22 PM PT (David Nir): On a night like tonight, Charles Krauthammer going several levels beyond batshit insane is almost like the cigarette I felt I needed after Clinton's speech:

"They knew what the weather was going to be MONTHS ago." -- Charles Krauthammer on tomorrow's #DNC2012 venue change

Wed Sep 05, 2012 at  9:24 PM PT (David Nir): After they finish the roll call of all the states, they bring Bill Clinton back out to give another speech, right?

Wed Sep 05, 2012 at  9:27 PM PT (David Nir): To channel Adlai Stevenson, Republicans will be able to give a speech as good as Clinton's when they learn to tell the truth.

Wed Sep 05, 2012 at  9:29 PM PT (David Nir):
How off-script did Clinton go? This much... #dnc2012

Wed Sep 05, 2012 at  9:38 PM PT (David Nir): NOT NEARLY LONG ENOUGH

Wed Sep 05, 2012 at  9:51 PM PT (David Nir): Why did we even need to liveblog tonight? Michelle Malkin sums it all up in just one tweet!

Day 2 of #DNC summary: God: BOO! Abortion: Woo-hoo! Sandra Fluke: WHO? Bill Clinton: Nothing new.

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.
