Well, this should no doubt be a lovely evening:

Romney, wife of presumed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, will be the star of a swing state fundraiser Monday in Northern Virginia.

About 150 people are expected at the women-only event hosted by Marlene Malek, wife of Republican fundraiser Fred Malek, and philanthropist Catherine Reynolds. The sold-out event will take place at the Maleks’ home in McLean, which boasts one of the top zip codes in the nation for political donations.

Yes indeedy, that's the home of the same Fred Malek who was fined for ripping off Connecticut state pension funds, who was Tricky Dicky's "Jew Counter", who also was one of Sarah Palin's top defenders, and - as if all that's not horrible enough - enjoyed a bit of dog killing and barbecuing in his younger days (what is it with the Romney campaign and abusing "man's best friend," anyway?). I'm afraid to ask what they'll be serving at the fundraiser on Monday, but some advice: if you live in McLean, you might want to keep a close eye on Fido the next few days. Just sayin'...

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.
