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:

Don't look at that moldering Bain in the window, we've got a shiny new V.P. choice that is far more interesting!

According to a N.Y. Times article, Mitt has made his choice (and if emphasis is any guide, by "choice" they mean "Pawlenty") and may announce it this week.  

Of course, this has nothing to do with stemming the Bain Bleeding, but since you mention it, Mr. Romney, there is a question we'd love to ask your VP choice:

How many years of tax returns did your pick have to submit in the vetting process?


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).

Of course, to expand on a comment I made earlier this week, I actually think Romney's choices are a little restricted now. We can cross off:

(after the NAACP speech) a politician from any state with a significant black population

(after Obama's ICE directive) a politician from any state with a significant latino population

(after the Bain controversy) a politician from any state where the voters frown upon perjury on state filings or sending all their jobs to East Slobobia.

(after the next poll numbers) a politician from any state where a politician wants a future

Hey Tim Pawlenty JAN BREWER! Yer lookin' good!

Oh wait.

Wow, just thinking about makes me totally forget about Mitt's very bad, horrible week.
