That's what I'm reporting: this vet/Palin/Cruz memorial protest story is going viral quickly on right, will shape House GOP scene on M & T
This is a big story; House conservatives tell me it's a "game-changer," gives Right new momentum ahead of this week
So despite the collapse of the GOP's polling numbers and outright civil war, congressional Republicans decided that their "million vets march" is a "game changer" that gives them "momentum" headed into this week. Wow.

Set aside the fact that the several hundred confederate flag waving and impeachment-sign carrying nuts didn't rate in traditional media newscasts because, really, who gives a shit about a bunch of Tea Party cranks? The Tea Party's approval ratings are in the toilet. No one outside the fringe likes them anymore.

Instead, let's take a look at some photos of these million vets that changed the game (it's a game now!) from Michelle Malkin's website, with 14 references to "million vets march" on the page just to drive home the point that, you know, it was A MILLION:

There are more Republicans in Congress than attended this protest. If they had attended this protest, their numbers would've swelled to 433 which, while not quite a million, would at least have gotten them a little bit closer.

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.
