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.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  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:

Hahahahaha!

The "this" would be Boehner's new position on triggers:

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday suggested that the sweeping across-the-board cuts that will be enacted in 2013 due to the failure of the debt "supercommittee" could be reworked.

The suggestion by Boehner at a Capitol news conference is at odds with the speaker's earlier statement that he would feel "morally bound" to abide by the "sequester," the formal term for the $1.2 trillion cut to defense and non-defense spending set to take effect in 2013.

"There is going to be $1.2 trillion of further cuts to meet our commitment," Boehner told reporters Wednesday morning. "And I think having the sequester in place to ensure that we're going to get our spending problem under control is a good thing. But I would prefer, and I think all of our members would prefer that we do this in a more responsible way."

Would that be a way that was "more responsible" than taking the debt ceiling hostage? More responsible than agreeing to automatic triggers if the Super Congress failed? More responsible than being on Grover Norquist's leash? Wanker.
