Rancher Cliven Bundy poses at his home in Bunkerville, Nevada, April 11, 2014. Armed U.S. rangers are rounding up cattle on federal land in Nevada in a rare showdown with Bundy, a rancher who has illegally grazed his herd on public lands for decades, as c
Cliven Bundy, Registered Republican.
As the tree is bent:
Shiree Bundy Cox on Thursday took aim at conservatives who rallied and amplified her father's cause on national television only to abandon him after the media "turned this into a circus side show."

"It's like their trying to throw us off the real subject. Why was this ever even brought up? What does this have to do with land rights issues?" she said in a Facebook post.

"Sean Hannity was all for reporting the happenings at the Bundy Ranch until this popped up. I wonder if someone hoped it would be that way….By the way, I think Mr. Hannity is more worried about his ratings than he really is about what my dad said. If he supports a supposed racist, what will that do to his ratings? He's already lost his #1 spot on Fox," she added.

And that, my friends, ends the latest chapter in the soiling of the surname Bundy. Cliven has made Ted, Al, and King Kong proud. But before he's gone by Monday morning, I'd add like to add a small note to his ex-friends in the Republican Party:

Dear Republicans,

As a hardcore Democrat, I want you all to know that I think Cliven Bundy is absolutely awesome. You know, I totally get why you all were drawn to this guy: he says honestly and openly what you all agree with, but are too chickenshit and dishonest to say. But make no mistake, he is your Marlboro Man as far as I'm concerned. Whenever I hear any of you say 'small government' or 'low taxes' I am going to think of Cliven Bundy. He is you and you are him.

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.
