Yo, Charlie, Davey. Pull up, boyos. Have a pint. Got a bit of advice fer ye.

I've seen yer new ad, the one with the play actors pretending to be Louisianians who got their insurance cancelled because of that O'Bama fella. Nice production values, I guess, though a bit light on substance.

Still, I'm not here to criticize yer film makers. Yer choice, there. Just want to say a little bit about thrift.

Now, I know ye've got so much money ye make Croesus look like a poor farmer, and I know ye've a tooth fer mixing it up in elections, but Mary Landrieu? Are ye fookin' daft?

Yer main dish is what's euphemistically called "energy," right? Special tooth fer the black gold, I understand. Like to keep the government off the backs of the drillin' tarriers and all that.

So why in the name of St. Bridget would ye spend $3 million and climbing tryin' to knock off Mary Landrieu? This woman's never seen an oil rig she wouldn't genuflect to. Look at her votes. Fer fook's sake, look at her bloody donors.

She's bucking her party on oily tax breaks, the Keystone pipeline and just about everything else holy to ye people. And they just pissed in the party pool makin' her bloody energy committee chair. What the fook do ye want, bass?

More to the point, what the fook do ye think yer gonna get if yer plan works? Ye can take out Mary well enow, but the chances of the GOP takin' control of the Senate aren't even runnin' even. So the best bonnie gal ye could ever wish for would be out of the energy chair and the likes of anyone quite as friendly to yer goods are near to nothin'.

Put it this way: if me neighborhood pub was givin' me free beer, I dinna think I'd be spending my folding to shut 'em down.

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.
