a DVD.  Just arrived in my Northern Virginia mailbox - a 2 hour DVD produced by the Tea Party Patriots called the "The DeTerminators" a supposed expose of the "Government Takeover of Healthcare."  The video features, among others, Rep. Paul "evolution is a lie from the pit of hell" Broun.  Am not too aware of the others listed on the back of the DVD under "FEATURaING" (yeah, I don't know what that means either) but one of them is an MD whose book "The Battle for America's Soul" the film is based on.

A card enclosed with the DVD asks "don't you owe it to your future self to spend 2 hours reviewing this before election day to evaluate your choices?" Ummmm, no, what I owe to my future self is to head on over to my local OFA office and work on GOTV!!!   They also tell me "We aren't telling you how to vote -- we know you are smart enough to know what is best for America."  Now that is true: they won't tell me how to vote and I am smart enough to know that re-electing President Barack Obama is what is best for America!!!

Definitely don't want to spend 2 hours on this garbage nor do I have the stomach for it but if anyone else received the same DVD and feels up to watching and reviewing, have at it....but probably our time is best spent Getting Out The Vote!!

Oh, almost forgot, of course the mailing included the handy-dandy Tea Part Patriot Pocket Sized Constitution.....

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.
