Short diary. I tweeted about it.

Update : I am no Lenny Bruce. I think I got the responses I expected. I don't break news and I never alluded that I do. Thanks for all the feedback.

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.

    why hasn't anyone written about this yet?

    If you say "gullible" real slow, it sounds like "green beans."

  •  Not only is this not news (3+ / 0-)

    We already know why it happened.  Gotta keep up...

  •  This diary is *literally* a day late (0+ / 0-)

    and a dollar short.

    Seriously: if you're going to push old news as "breaking" news, then at least provide us with an insightful analysis. Or full paragraphs. Or, like, more than one complete sentence.

    •  I never called it breaking news (0+ / 0-)

      Good Lord ... I think I got just the amount of attention I deserved on this "story". I don't break news. I may crack a bad joke. I was sound asleep when this news broke and I just found it ironic Saint Petraeus was taken down ... by the equivalent of an "Intern".

      I am no great writer or orator. I don't try to break news because that is not me.

      I never push old news and breaking news and I never worry about what others think.

      I am concerned that some think my tweet was misogynist. It is not, just a failed attempt at humor, if even than. I stand by my "legit tweets" even though it was not a "forcible tweet".

  •  Joy Behar made a funny joke about "All in" (0+ / 0-)

    I love Joy. I actually appreciate all the feedback from people who have been on dailykos longer than I. I stand by it ... I think it is just funny and if I made a bad or crass joke, screw all you thin skinners.

    I never claimed to break news. I tweeted, what may be a bad joke. Mom and I talked about it and she agrees with me, but I never dismiss other people's take or opinion on things I say.

    I was only surprised by the insults. We Liberals had a great 1st Tue Nov 2012.

    Joy just joked about "In bed". That was a laugh out moment for me. I understand ... I have a different sense of humor than many ... but when a guy like Bob Somerby tells us we need to be more logical ... I get it. I also know that he jokes around.

    I may be the worst joke or joker.

    I was just surprised that some one, no names, said I was a misogynist and SHE SAID just read his tweet.

    Duh ... I posted it because I wanted it read and I appreciate people, without wit, who promote ... my.bad.wit.

    I care that I didn't get my 15 minutes of fame. I wasn't looking for any fame and I apologize to anyone offended ... I really am sorry.

    I mean I am sorry I am a back bench. I am not even on the team.

  •  People are still talking ... (0+ / 0-)

    I smelled more to this story. I never claimed to break a story. I made a bad drunk joke. I reviewed what may have been a mistake on my part. Sorry.

    And people are still talking.

    As I said ... I may have made a bad joke [duh] but I hate insults, but I have thick skin.

    People ... I am not your enemy.
