The Clinton Presidential Library is releasing around 4,000 pages of previously unavailable documents. Which means the Clinton-haters are going to have a lot of reading to do, looking for the shocking revelations they've waited for all these years. I'm talking about the people who just know that one of these days, the TRUTH about Vince Foster's death and Hillary Clinton's sex life is going to come out ... in officially released government documents.

So prepare to be titillated by right-wing email blasts purporting to draw from the following extremely sexy and scandalous documents:

FOIA 2006-0175-F - Executive Order 13111

Is it too much to hope that the "OMG, Hillary is totally a lesbian and Chelsea is Webb Hubbell's daughter" crowd will be distracted by this for at least a couple of days?

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.
