I need the Daily Kos corp of genius to tell me what is and what isn't wrong with my four blogs. You have time to read them. I know you do. It's my feeble attempt at satire. I know some people won't understand the points of the articles, but you guys will.

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.

    I read one. You have funny ideas. I see glimmers of gold. Edit.  Use fewer words. Write more.  And keep writing.

    some time on my hands, so what the heck:

    First, I assume what you wanted to say was "blog posts" and not "blogs".  You have one blog and have made four posts...

    Regarding your efforts at satire (based on my long, well-established history as a failed blogger):

    a)  The RIV Bible thing was pretty good, but it relies to a degree on the reader knowing what the more commonly accepted versions of the Bible actually say in those particular passages. You provided the reference so the real passages could be looked up, but it creates work for your reader that could have been fixed with a hyperlink or mouse-over pop-up that would have simplified the comparison (no, I don't know how to do that latter thing).

    2) The "step dad" and "Hitler and me" posts were probably too densely populated with points you wanted to make to be really effective satire.  I get the "step dad" post, but I'm not sure I could ever explain the "Hitler" post and the lines that it appears to cross...

    III) I actually enjoyed that last golfing post; I thought it was kind of cute and amusing.  That looks more like satire than the middle two posts...

    ...or maybe this comment is an example of  the admonition to be careful of what you ask for...
