In one of the funniest episodes I can remember in my several years of blogging, I was contacted yesterday by a Republican state legislator, who is upset by the fact that I did not include him in my year-end list of the state’s top nutjobs of 2013 which I posted on New Year’s day.

Rep. Ed Walker (R-Billings) appears to be arguing that an imbecilic racially charged twitter rant he engaged in should have merited him a mention in the post.

“You left me out off your top 10 list?” Walker fumed. “I figured you would include our back and forth on the history of Democrat racism in American [sic].....Also, I remember educating your progressive, low information readers (but I repeat myself) about how progressive policy = road to serfdom.”

And so, my sincerest apologies to Mr. Walker. At his request, I will revise the list to reflect that Rep. Walker is indeed a nutjob. Specifically, he became the subject of ridicule after he embarked on a major twitter rant about race. His thesis was that the Democratic Party is the party of racists, while the Republican Party is the party that fights racism.

Note that this isn’t the first time Walker has become very preoccupied about the Cowgirl Blog. He often directs his tweets at me and he’s several times referred to me as a “demo terrorist,” whatever that means.

Happy New Year Ed, my nutjob TEA Party fan.

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.
