  • Today's comic by Jen Sorensen is Dirt-y politics:

  • The bigots at NOM want you to join them for the "March for Marriage," their grassroots hate-fest they're holding next month. And it's so grassroots-y that they can't even find a real family to promote it.
  • Dropping likes flies:
    Fox News "had its worst ratings since 2001 in January ..."

    "The network had a 12-year low in the coveted 25-54 demographic in primetime and fell to its lowest total day ratings since 2008."

  • Good question:
    Wayne LaPierre says he represents the million + members of NRA - why then do 72% of them approve of universal background checks.

  • In Florida—and who knows where else—apparently only women can give up their name:
    A newly married South Florida man who opted to take his wife's last name is fighting the state's Department of Motor Vehicles after it suspended his driving license on grounds of fraud.

    Real estate investor Lazaro Sopena offered to change his name following his 2011 marriage to Hanh Dinh in order to help his wife's Vietnamese family perpetuate their family surname.

  • Yowser! Riding a 90 foot wave:

  • On today's Kagro in the Morning show, Greg Dworkin had polling  from NY & PA on proposed gun policies, and Gov. Cuomo's approval ratings in the wake of policy changes in his state. Armando joined in on the economic figures, plus took a turn bashing Joe Scarborough. Then, the day's crazy gun stories, including an ongoing school shooting/hostage situation taking place in the background of today's Senate gun policy hearing, and readings of Alex Seitz-Wald's rebuttal of David Mamet, and Paul Buchheit's, "The Extremist Cult of Capitalism."

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.
