GOP Valentine: 'I got you a trillion dollar chocolate coin for Valentine's Day'
Take that, person only 5% of America will recognize
For Valentine's Day, the Republican Party had the very original idea of getting people to send each other politically themed Valentine emails featuring a bunch of people that Republicans are supposed to hate. Obama and Biden are both there, along with Hillary Clinton, Dianne Feinstein (the long-term GOP obsession with Feinstein continues to baffle me), Cory Booker and others.

This is kinda sad. Not just the Republican idea of sending someone you apparently like(?) hate mail for Valentine's Day, but the very shoddy quality of that hate mail. These are not good jokes! And the 200,000 follower RNC is tweeting out that people are sending "over 65" of these a minute, which is somewhat like Mitt Romney announcing that his campaign found a shiny new quarter behind the couch, so take that, Barack Obama.

Anyway, I don't recommend sending these to anyone unless you hate them. The form on the page allows you to send them to up to 20 recipients at a time, which means the 20 people you choose will get their email addresses added to a GOP spam list faster than you can say freedom fries.

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.
