Earlier today I wrote about Governor Scott Walker (R. WI) stumping for gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli (R. VA).  I also received this e-mail from the Wisconsin Democratic Party arguing that Walker and Cuccinelli are two peas in a pod:
I really didn’t want to jump on the bandwagon of spooky, punny, Halloween-themed pleas today.

So I’ve got a Halloween game for you instead. This weekend, Scott Walker is headed out of town to stump for Tea Party radical Ken Cuccinelli in the Virginia governor’s race.

In case you’re not familiar with him, Cuccinelli became a Tea Party darling following his stint as the chief advocate for Virginia’s forced transvaginal ultrasound bill. Scott Walker and Wisconsin Republicans picked up the mantle and ran with it here, pursuing the exact same kind of extreme legislation.

Scott Walker and Ken Cuccinelli are virtually indistinguishable when it comes to anti-woman policies: Take our quiz below and see if you can tell them apart.

No word yet on whether Walker and Cuccinelli will only be discussing forced ultrasounds, or if they’ll chat about jobs failure and how to kick people off healthcare, too. But whatever they’re doing, it’s sure to be about as popular with folks in Wisconsin and Virginia as toothbrushes and dental floss are with Trick or Treat-ers.

Hope you enjoy your Halloween, and thanks for taking our quiz.

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.
