In a seditious article earlier today, the forces of evil announced a coup at the Great Orange Satan.

While Navajo was rolling cigars between her thighs in their Cuban hideaway, and Armando was planning an assault on Daily Kos Radio, to further cement their grip on power, Susan Gardner worked with the Meteoric Resistance.

Full Report below the Orange Squiggle of Revenge

From a bunker in Berkeley:

Markos: Will no one rid me of this meddlesome Armando?

Susan: Boss, you brought him back, now he's inside the tent, pissing in!

Markos: But Nava-freakin'-jo. I didn't see that coming!

ct: Pizza anyone?

Markos/Susan: Shut up ct!

ct slinks away still looking for the data center keys

Susan: Something IS being done. I called up grog the impaler, vcmvo2 (the one with the name no one can spell), and pico the persuader. They have a freakin' army and General Blades is leading the fight.

Markos: Well I gave them prime real estate on the site. It's time they did something useful!

Phone rings ... It's twigg, he has the keys for the data center and is offering them in exchange for Universal Healthcare

Markos: ct! Go deal with twigg, get the keys and remind him who controls the Mojo around here. Leave the pizza, this revolutionary crap is making me hungry.

Meanwhile, unbeknownst even to the efficient Susan, the Top Comments team have launched an offensive from Miami. Unfortunately, JekylnHyde chose this moment to post a cartoon, of a hurricane in Florida, so Top Comments may be late tonight ... again. Markos is investigating the suggestion that JekylnHyda might be in league with weatherdude, playing a whole other game of their own

Susan: ct has the keys. Meteor Blades sent a Night Owl over to twigg who sent them back tied to the owl's leg. ct has cut the data link to Cuba. We have control.

NEWSFLASH: Police are investigating anonymous reports of a foreigner in Oklahoma being cruel to an owl.

Meanwhile, in a  swift and decisive action (obviously they can not be from the DNC), the Rescue Rangers have joined up with the Top Comments team and mopped up the remaining rebels. Orange flag with snake emblem is lowered and we can see "Man holding flag" restored to its rightful place.

Markos was last seen heading out on a bicycle, piano music emanating from his iPod.

Mentioned in Dipatches:

grog ... for having an awesome name
pico .... ditto
vcmvo2 .... spellcheck

Special Awards:

Top Comments - All of them
Overnight News Digest - For reporting all the news late, every day :)
J town - For being J-Town

There have been some reprecussions from this sorry episode. Brief highlights below.

Armando - Seriously dude! Retained by Front Page but must surrender key to Executive Toilet at Headquarters.

Navajo - Sentenced to a leading role at NetRoots Nation 2013

Twigg - Under investigation for playing both sides of the pond.

Bob Johnson - Snark privileges revoked. We understand that this might be deemed a "Cruel and Unusual Punishment", an appeal is being considered.

Jotter will be along later with all the relevant stats!

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.
