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:

Follow me past the orange squiggle of doom to have a look at Republican Scott Brown's latest email plea, in which he quotes Markos Moulitsas quite prominently...


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).

From: Scott Brown

There are two very different visions in this race for U.S. Senate.

There’s my vision of economic growth and prosperity fueled by low taxes, less spending, lower debt, and American ingenuity…

…and then there’s Professor Elizabeth Warren’s vision of big government where success is punished and the wet blanket of high taxation and overregulation smothers everything that has made America the greatest country in the history of mankind.

Although I know you share my positive vision for the future, Professor Warren’s supporters are putting their money where their mouth is, and they have made her victory – and my defeat – their top priority.

Just take it from Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas who said recently that:

“Elizabeth Warren is probably the Number One project of the progressive movement this November.”

Or the New York Times whose headline recently called Warren:

“The Left’s New Star”

Or Progressive activist Van Jones who says that if Warren beats me:

“…she’s going to be in the White House someday.”

In ten days, on June 30th, Warren and I will file our FEC Campaign Disclosure Reports. Hers will be chock-full of Hollywood money and checks from all over the country from those who subscribe to her Occupy Everything philosophy.

Will you give me your online help, a contribution for $20 or perhaps $50, so we can show the strongest financial report possible?

We have ten days to hit our goal of $150,000. That’s ten days to raise the funds for our ads and letters. Elizabeth Warren’s willing to rewrite her own history and she’s happy to distort my record, question my motives and attack my character.

We have just ten days to raise the funds to help tell the truth about my record and hers. Please make your online contribution for $20 or $50 or some other amount that is right for you.

Thanks so much,

Scott Brown
United States Senator
The People’s Seat

Wear that one proudly, Markos!  When you've got Scott Brown trying to raise money with your name prominently mentioned in the pitch, you're doing something right!  And using a picture of a chicken on the front page when talking about him is just icing on the cake...

Kossacks, you all know what to do with this link:  Donate to Elizabeth Warren
