If you haven't noticed, all you have to do is check out the comments in this video (e.g., "Nasty liar.. I hope her all the worst! Skanky Democrat"; "Jennifer Wexton is a Democrat dumpster that only a true Looney Leftist would support. You turds will be destroyed at the polls in 2014. Real Americans know what needs to be done with you filthy bastards. Die slow traitors.") and this one (e.g., "This woman is a  pro-abortion pig. Any coward who supports abortion has the blood of babies on their hands.") to get a taste of the foul vitriol spewing forth towards Jennifer Wexton, the Democratic nominee for State Senate in the 33rd district (the seat Mark Herring is vacating). The Republican nominee running against Wexton is the infamous anti-Semitic "joke" guy John Whitbeck, so it's not like Republicans have a positive argument to make here. Instead, they're putting out ads like the one below, Facebook pages like this one (in which they bizarrely quote from Lenin and more bizarrely seem fixated on the hair color of "Jinnie" - as they condescendingly call her. Raging misogyny? You've come to the right place: the Republican Party, circa 2014! Ugh.

P.S. Also see this pathetic ad by the extremist "Middle Resolution PAC" - notice the similar theme with the Facebook page, etc? Hmmmm.

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.
