George W. Bush,

"Bush Family"

See: Tags:Bush_Family

George W. Bush Administration

Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Donald Rumsfeld, Alberto Gonzales, John Yoo, Scooter Libby, Condoleezza Rice,

Robert Gates NOT Bob Gates

J. Michael McConnell The tag for the new Director of National Intelligence nominee is J. Michael McConnell. This is how his name appears in his bio at Compudyne, in the NYT story announcing his appointment, and at defenselink. -Halcyon, 8 January 2006, 18:50 EST

Dick Cheney - The Hunting Accident:
In February 2006, Dick Cheney was hunting in TX and shot a fellow hunter, Harry Whittington. These are the names commonly associated with diaries on this subject:

Dick Cheney, Karen Armstrong, hunting accident, Harry Whittington, Ramiro Medellin, Charles Kirk, Secret Service, Ramon Salinas, Pam Willeford, Bo Hubert, Jerry Medellin, Oscar Medellin, Sarita Armstrong Hixon, Gilberto San Miguel Jr, Ann Armstrong, Kenedy County, Marc Cisneros,



Hillary Clinton, Russ Feingold, Joe Lieberman, John Kerry, Jim Webb, Harry Reid

Chuck Schumer:
I'm creating the "ambiguous" set and their maps. I see "Schumer", "Charles Schumer", and "Chuck Schumer". My vote is for "Chuck Schumer". --Centerfielder 12:42, 28 October 2006 (PDT) ---

Agree, it also has the most useage. --SarahLee 23:39, 30 October 2006 (PST)

Mark Foley
As of 10-18-06 there are two tags that have shown up to describe the page scandal:

  1. Foleygate - 98 entries
  2. Pagegate - 33 entries

So while Foleygate wins on numbers, there is a hint that there may be others involved in "page abuse" so I am thinking that pagegate might actually be a better overall term to use.

Other common tags (not all would be used in all diaries):
Mark Foley, ABC, Matthew Loraditch, Rodney Alexander, Tom Reynolds, Dennis Haster, Tim Kennedy, Mike Stokke, Jeff Trandahl, John Shimkus, Dale Kildee, Shelley Moore Capito, Tampa Bay Times, Committee for Missing and Exploited Children, John Boehner, TOMPAC, Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, Florida Republican Leadership PAC


John McCain


John Murtha,

Tom DeLay, Dennis Hastert

Others - including candidates

Patrick Fitzgerald, Joseph Wilson,


Howard Dean, Al Gore

"Wesley Clark" has over 200 more entries than any other tag for Gen. Clark/Wes Clark, etc. so that is the winner.

Not to mention that "General" is a title. -- Centerfielder 09:24, 31 October 2006 (PST)

John Edwards,


Jack Abramoff, George Allen, Harriet Miers,


John Paul Stevens, Clarence Thomas, Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito,
