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:

redstate, fail, lol
     Really? Doesn't this sum up all of modern conservativism?

     When all the facts are against you, blame the fact-checkers. . .

     So check out this post by Conservative RedState.com front pager streiff. It is just pathetic.

Quote a FactChecker Earn a Ban

     In the past we’ve had a policy of banning people who argue in bad faith. As Politifact, and the whole menagerie of “fact checking” organizations have demonstrated themselves to be slavishly attached to the Administration’s nether regions I will consider quoting any of them, in a non-ironic way, as being evidence of arguing in bad faith and worthy of a ban.

    What do you think?

   I think you just divorced reality.

   Mitt Romney created 100 million jobs as Gov of Massachusetts. Disagree? YOU'RE BANNED!

   It's like open bar for liars. A place where lies and falsehoods can never be proven false. And CNN pays  Erick Erickson of RedState.com for his "commentary", the same guy who manages a website that will ban you if you quote fact-checkers at them. I guess when CNN introduces Erickson they will have to ad a caveat to his byline (Founder of RedState.com, statements made at RedState.com are not intended to be a factual statement.)

    Who woke up on 9/11 today and decided the whole problem with this country is the fact checkers? If it wasn't for the American public's insistence on arithmetic, science and knowing recent history it would be really good news for John McCain Mitt Romney. Basically admitting that you can't win a debate unless the public is as ignorant as possible should be a bad thing, shouldn't it?

    Face it, this is what a small tent getting smaller looks like. A small tent that is about to get demoralized in the upcoming Presidential election. Reality doesn't just have a liberal bias, reality is actually a liberal conspiracy. And don't believe any non partisan fact-checking organizations who say otherwise, they are clearly in the tank for reality.

   gop, lies, empty chair
