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.

    Alright, so fear is a b*tch, but you get my point, I hope.

    The problem with the Republicans is that fear is all they have.  They have been saving it up, wrapping it up, and hawking it for so long, they now know nothing else.

    If they can't sell the fear, they've got nuthin', and all the Fox News b.s. and all the rapturing (which is also b.s.) and all the xenophobic, racist, misogynistic b.s. in the world is not enough to make them relevant to anyone else.

    Without fear to peddle, they might as well go away.

    Then, we can go lay on a beach for a while, relax in the sun, and draw a deep breath before we get back to fixing the utter clusterf*ck they've left behind.


    We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.
