Thanks to Delta's indifference to customer service, I missed watching the entire debate. It was  a short trip, Chicago to Detroit. I travel a lot for my work. I should have been in Detroit in plenty of time to watch the entire debate, and boy did I ever want to do that.

But they cancelled the flight I booked, and then the alternative flight they put me on ran three hours late. I could have taken Amtrak and given the airline delays, it wouldn't have taken any longer and cost about 15% of the airfare. But I stayed at the airport, waited for the flight, and missed the entire VP debate.

That said, thanks to my beloved Daily Kos, as soon as I got to the internet bar at my hotel, by reviewing the live blog and top new diaries I was able to almost experience Joltin' Joe Biden's smack-down of Ryan, the clueless shill from Janesville.

Thank you, Joe Biden. Thank you, Daily Kos.

Gotta go now. Short night tonight. Long day tomorrow. Adios.

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.
