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:

In addition to the recall election against Gov. Scott Walker, there will be four state Senate elections in Wisconsin on June 5. Democrats only need to win one or those four elections to take control of the chamber outright.

In one of those four elections, Democratic state Rep. Donna Seidel has started running a powerful new ad against her opponent, Republican state Rep. Jerry Petrowski, about his participation in the Republican war on women. Check it out:

Here's a transcript, spoken by a rotating group of women looking directly into the camera:

I have something to say to Jerry Petrowski.

I work hard every day. And you think women shouldn't get paid the same as men for doing the same work?

And when it comes to my health Jerry, and the lives of my family and friends, you slashed funding for breast and cervical cancer screenings and voted against emergency contraception for victims of rape and incest.

I have something to say to Jerry Petrowski.

Jerry, how could you? How could you could you do that to my daughter? How could you do that to my mother? How could you do that to us?

Jerry, we expected more from you.

If you want to help keep this ad on the air, please click here to contribute $5 to Donna Seidel.

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).
