Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

What an idiot.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley decided to share her feelings today on buying school supplies for her children - a task many, many parents are taking part in this weekend.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

However, Haley acts as if her spending $150 is a pain.

Not so fast. Haley can sneeze $150. How about the rest of you in our state? Our country? Can you all just ho-hum that amount these days? Oh, and to think our governor is trying to "relate" to us as if it hurts.  

Give me a damn break. Haley and her Republican friends enjoyed cutting millions and millions from public education. Matter of fact, she snubbed millions more from the federal government - our share of funds of which we deserve - in June. And, just like the uncaring Republicans they are, Haley and Education Superintendent Mick Zais did it again.

The USDE recently sent a reminder letter to Gov. Nikki Haley and Zais, notifying them of Monday’s deadline to apply for the funds, according to a report from the Associated Press. “These resources have assisted local schools and communities across the country in hiring and retaining vital teachers and educators in the classroom to support ongoing teaching and learning,” agency director Ann Whalen wrote in her Aug. 5 letter.
Haley shows her true ignorance today. By sending out her comment, she expects the people of this state to sympathize with her for spending $150 on school supplies as if it took food away from them.
