I am so sick of conservatives calling the rest of us “socialists,” “communists,” “fascists,” etc.  Now, if you’re like me, you are pretty well convinced those name-callers couldn’t tell you what any of those names even mean.  But what frustrates me most, is that the rest of us have no similar name for conservatives, i.e., a name we can’t define, but we know it’s true.  

Here and now, I suggest that we start calling them “dingobots” in return.  Let them scratch their heads bare trying to figure out how much they’ve been disrespected.  We’ll just sit back and let them assume if it comes from us, it MUST be something worse than socialists, communists, or fascists.  I’m not wedded to “dingobots” and would love to hear some other suggestions.  Once we’ve coalesced around a sufficiently insulting unknown epithet, we can let ’em have it in every exchange.  It WILL drive them crazy.  

BTW, no rules on suggestions, other than it can’t be a real word or phrase.  But…the more suggestively derogatory, insulting, and just downright sleazy sounding, the better it should be in amping up the indignity of its targets.

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.
