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:

UPDATE (6:55 p.m. ET): We just broke through the $1 million mark in today's money bomb! Thank you -- now let's keep it going and reach as big a number as possible before midnight. Please contribute to today's money bomb now.

UPDATE (1:00 p.m. ET): Join me over at Crooks & Liars now for a live chat, hosted by Digby!

Remember two years ago, all the talk about "the People's Seat"?

And how that special election held two years ago today would ensure the people of Massachusetts elected a leader -- a trustworthy steward of "the People's Seat"?

That's what we were promised, but it's not what we got. Forbes magazine calls Scott Brown, "one of Wall Street's favorite Senators."

I am running for the United States Senate because I think it's time we take the "People's Seat" back from Wall Street and other powerful interests.

Intro

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).


I need your help. I need you -- today, on the anniversary of Scott Brown's special election -- to help us take back this seat for middle-class families in Massachusetts.

It's money bomb day. Make a contribution of $5 or more today.

While Scott Brown celebrates the two-year anniversary of his election by officially launching his re-election, we can show that we have the grassroots support we need to win this election by launching a powerful "money bomb".

I won't sugar coat it: Scott Brown has an enormous campaign war chest -- twice what we have in the bank -- and we're still fighting tooth and nail to narrow the gap. The powerful interests that are lining up behind his campaign have his back because, as a U.S. Senator, he has had theirs.

What we accomplish together today will show the world we have the grassroots organization and support to win this election, no matter what Scott Brown and Wall Street throw at us.

If you've been waiting to make your money bomb contribution, this is it.

Now's the time to join thousands of your fellow supporters, to chip in, and to show that we are going to take our seat -- and our country -- back for the people.

Thank you for being a part of this,

Elizabeth Warren

P.S. I'll be stopping by Crooks & Liars TODAY for a Blue America live chat at 1:00 p.m. Eastern/10:00 a.m. Pacific, hosted by Digby. Hope you can join us and continue the conversation!
