I would like to apologize to Arkansas State Representative Nate Bell for the poor timing of my comments about him since his insensitive tweet from earlier today for which he has totally and sincerely apologized.

In conversations today, I may have referred to Rep. Bell as:

a coward
a lunatic in a sea of lunatics
someone whose birth certificate was an apology from the condom factory
a testicle shitting rectal wart
a miserable piece of shit
an idiot
someone who if they were twice as smart would still be an idiot
someone who sprang from apes but not quite far enough
someone who deserves a swift kick in the nuts
a fuckstick
a right-wing dipshit
a craven panderer
an asshole
proof that someone can be impervious to education
someone who, if ignorance ever sold for $40 a barrel could make millions selling drilling rights to his head
someone who's tweet was probably less offensive in the original German
a nincompoop
a supplier of ignorance
a successful cross between a crawfish and a cockroach
contemptible
a stupid ass
a hustler
a chiseler
an argument against evolution
a man with delusions of adequacy
despicable
a total waste of protein
a Republican
a moron
someone who hates nature because of what it did to him
a kook
a wingnut
a gun freak
a man with no fear of head injuries, nor reason to fear them
someone who would make an exceptional stranger

It is truly unfortunate that I chose to make these comments so soon after you proved them all to be accurate. I apologize for the timing of my remarks.

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.
