So I'm putting it up here for you to comment on.

Roy Blunt is the Majority Whip, and therfore Tom Delay's right hand man. He and the other "Pac Boys" that run the Republican house have been engaged in strong armed robbery of the American people.

Any thoughts on how to get this across to people?

And tell me how the election will turn out.

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.

  •  Every Democrat... (none)
    Running for every office needs to campaign against Delay. I don't care if they are running for Senate of Texas or City Council of Montana. This is the only way to get the word out about what he is doing. The people of this country need to know how much control this man has over their money and how it's distributed only to those who follow his fundamentalist vision. He needs to be exposed and campaigning against Tom Delay will show America that there is only ONE republican who makes decisions in this country and the rest just fall in line - or face his wrath.
    •  He is this election's Newt Gingrich. (none)
      His views and his tactics are offensive to most people. I think we should be making a really big deal of the fact he used the department of homeland security to find the TX Democrats. That just screams of abuse of power in a way most voters will understand. Unfortunatley, his ties to the special interest groups are more esoteric and most Americans think Republicans and Democrats do that anyway.
  •  Pac Boys (none)
    An obvious play on this is the PacMen chomping on dollar bills, or on glyphs representing the various classes of people (or social programs) who are being eaten alive. In the middle, a (labeled) figure of Blunt, cracking a whip. (Tom DeLay in the corner, wielding a hammer?)

    And no, I'm not volunteering to do the animation. It's way above my Flash paygrade. :-)

    A peacock that sits on its tail feathers is just another turkey.
