By now, you all know who Bob Marshall is.  He's the Virginia Delegate from the 13th District who has brought you such gems as:

-- He stated that special needs children are a result of God's vengeance for abortions.
-- Earlier this year, The Washington Times reported Marshall doubled down on his statement, "I don't care.  I mean, if I say something in public, I say it in public."
-- Speaking about Justice Anthony Kennedy, Marshall said, "For all I know, Kennedy's a homosexual.  You can't be doing some of these things without this kind of conclusion."
-- He is opposed to abortion in all cases, including incest and rape.
-- He co-authored the Marshall-Newman Amendment banning same-sex marriage in Virginia.
-- He authored a fetal personhood bill.
-- He wrote a bill to study the possibility of Virginia establishing its own currency.
-- He launched an effort to defeat the nomination of Tracy Thorne-Begland to the bench in Virginia because he is gay.

And the list goes on and on.

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.
