I don't know about you, but I'm all tea-partied out.

So, if you're looking for hot balls-in-mouth action, I suggest you go elsewhere (try or Craigslist).

On the other hand, if you're in the market for hot girl-on-girl action, you need look no further than the VA GOP's YouTube channel.

If, however, your interests are more mainstream, follow me below the fold.

A.B. Culvahouse, the man tasked with vetting Vice Presidential candidates for Sen. John McCain, had three tough questions for Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, which she knocked "out of the park".

The Republican attorney recalled that after the vetting process McCain asked him for his "bottom line" on picking Palin. "John," Culvahouse said, "high risk, high reward."

"You shouldn’t have told me that," McCain responded. "I’ve been a risk taker all my life."

In other Palin-related news, the family feud with Sarah's grandbaby daddy continues unabated, much to the delight of Andrew Sullivan.


Moving along, from one whack job to another...

"The [flying] imams were actually attending Congressman Keith Ellison's victory celebration, when he won as a member of Congress," said Bachmann.

The only problem is...

"This is not true," said Ellison.

"I think it could even be called 'Psycho Talk.'"


And lest you think that insanity only affects those without a Y chromosome, here's Chairman Steele:

"You know, they've got their eye on the 3,000 Americans who assembled in Indiana last night, in Evansville, Indiana, to profess their continued effort to save the life of the unborn. Sarah Palin and myself and 3,000 other Americans who're concerned about the life issue were gathered there. And I'm sure there was somebody in the room with a notepad and a camera taking snapshots and writing down names."


Won't somebody please think of the children!

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.
