We've made it through Week 6 on Daily Kos Radio, so Happy Friday to you! As usual, I led things off with the Kagro in the Morning show, reviewing yesterday's "accomplishments" in Congress, then welcomed DemFromCT for his regular appearance on the day's polling and broader issues. The show also featured another installment of Romneybot3000's reading of Hunter's The Chronicles of Mitt, and some wondering aloud (and a-long) about where the absolutists are for our First and Fourth Amendment rights, and why we don't see politicians afraid to touch those, the way they cower from Second Amendment activists. Now that's some Daily Kos Radio, right there.

Kagro in the Morning:

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.

  •  About the Romneybot 3000... (2+ / 0-)

    Can I cast a vote for installing a new voice subroutine?

    I've been avidly following the Chronicles of Mitt from the beginning, and I think it's a great idea to have the Romneybot 3000 bring the diary entries to the radio. But now that I've heard a few of those readings, I have to say that the voice subroutine just isn't doing the Chronicles justice. Between the dropped syllables and periodically garbled pronunciation, a lot of Hunter's cleverness is getting lost in translation.

    So what do you think? Is it possible to replace the voice subroutine? Maybe something a little less "robotic" in the '50s sense of the word and more like actual robots of today (or even like HAL in 2001: A Space Odyssey)?

    •  Yes. (0+ / 0-)

      It's possible.

      Will I do it?

      I want to. But that's not the same thing!

      Seriously, though, I'll give it a try. I get what you're saying. It's not as funny as I thought it would be. Maybe a new voice will help with that.

      On the plus side for the current voice: It's free.
