Richard Trumka, President of the AFL-CIO -- without the support of which MUCH OF THE GOOD THINGS THAT HAPPEN IN POLITICS IN THIS COUNTRY WOULD NOT HAPPEN -- wrote a nice GOTV diary here a couple of hours back.

It got a decent number of recs, but not enough to make the Rec List, and it is now slipping into oblivion -- the day before the fracking Presidential election.

Maybe The Powers That Be will be clever enough to front-page it, but we can't count on that.

Hence my threat in the diary title.

Read the diary and recommend it -- not necessarily in that order.

Don't make me do what I'm thinking of doing.  Yes, it involves bodily fluids, and yes it involves Karl Rove, and yes it could create real problems for my and my family -- for my children.

Think of the children!

Also, go think of the good the AFL-CIO is doing and give up a spot on our list for Richard Trumka.

I made a picture for you to apologize for my being crass above:

Not enough?  OK, here's me meeting Jerry Brown's dog Sutter Brown yesterday, when he came to Fullerton to bring attention to the need to support Prop 30.

Still not enough?  OK, here's one more picture, from 1975, that will only be visible to those who realize that recommending the Trumka diary is the right thing to do.">

So, if you were able to see that last photo, now you know what you have to do.

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.
