Bruce Hornsby's ballad about people defining others in a negative light seems so appropriate in this political season where 47% of the population are "moochers" who need to "get a job" and pay some taxes.  Apparently there is no excuse for not fulfilling the American obligation to hold down at least two jobs, paying more than your boss does for taxes, insurance and food while somehow managing to never do anything inconvenient to the ruling class like utilizing unemployment insurance, food stamps or student loans.  But never fear, if you can't afford health care there's always that wonderful option of getting it "free" from the emergency room, right Mitt?!  Oh wait, Romney 9.0 will be out later today with the latest flip flop on what he really wants to do to (I mean for?) Medicare.  "Some things will never change."  Robmoney/Lyin' will do what they do best (lie) and Democrats will do what we've been doing for several decades now-bailing out the country from the war-mongering, tax alterring, budget-busting policies that the Repukes institute and then deny responsibility for.  They built what exactly?  The beginnings of that fence with Mexico?  Nah, to paraphrase:"Don't you believe 'em."

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.
