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:

It was possibly reported yesterday, at NewsBusters, that a group of well known Conservatives unearthed a film treatment, lost for over two centuries, this past weekend.  Purportedly Senator Jim Demint, Glenn Beck, Dick Armey, Congressmen Paul Ryan and Mike Pence, and Mississippi Governor, Haley Barbour, were enjoying some needed R&R, relaxing and fishing at Grover Norquist's, rather simple, weekend home in the recently completed private community; The Lake Freedom Maranatha Sanctuary and Gun Club.  It is located close to Conshohocken, 18 miles outside Philadelphia.  This very exclusive property was reportedly financed by a wealthy Nicaraguan heiress and features a world class skeet shooting range designed by the ballistics consulting firm of Abramoff & North and, a man made, 172 acre fully stocked lake.


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).

A local man, Cincinnatus Perth, is reported to have been cleaning his catch of shad nearby and supposedly told the reporter, "There was a nicely dressed, a kinda heavy guy -- I think i've seen him on t.v..  He was shouting at a pretty rough looking, tall man, with tattoos all over his bald head.  He was telling him not to put the worms in the jar.  The other dude, with ugly white people dread locks and a really bad limp, grabbed the pot away from the big guy and thats when the big dude pulled out a Dirty Harry looking gun.I threw my fish down and called 911.  I just ran.  I ran."  

When the police arrived Mr. Barbour was able to de-escalate the situation with his honorary Mississippi State Troopers badge and a newspaper clipping of him pheasant hunting with Dick Cheney.

The reporter was allegedly able to catch up with Senator Demint and Congressman Pence at the Baggataway Tavern, sharing a crock of Baltimore Crab Dip, enjoying a couple of pints of Dock Street IPA.  When asked about what had transpired by the river that morning, Senator Demint replied, "Haley made one heck of a find. All I can say at this time is that him and his associates found a buried earthenware vessel containing what appears to, possibly, be a two hundred plus year old screenplay.  We are going to have the respected Historian and colleague of Mr. Beck , David Barton, take a look at it and authenticate it.  We're very excited.  If I have anything to do about it it will finally be made into, probably, the most important American movie of all time, as was intended."  

When asked about the subject matter of the script and who wrote it, Congressman Pence asked if he could reply and said, "We don't know for sure who the author is, however, we are pretty sure it was someone very close to the Founders. This will unequivocally and eloquently put to rest any questions about this great nation being an, almost exclusively, Christian nation and our government designed as small government, sailing, vibrant and alive, in an American ocean, teeming with unfettered free market Capitalists."

John Meechum and Doris Kearns Goodwin were not available for comment.

Unfortunately Howard Zinn is no longer with us.
