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:

Mitt Romney's chief calling card, presented when he showed up to ask you for your country's hand, was inscribed in bold letters: "W. Mitt Romney, Money Man."

All these other yahoos hanging around may have intriguing ideas about contraception and gays and what-all, and that's all well and good if you're trying to keep other yahoos busy, but you and I know this country's got problems, big money problems. You want to get that straightened up, better call the Money Man.


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).

And so, despite the unprecedented opacity of the Money Man's own record on money, his party and some curious independents took him at his word, dismissing the other suitors and sitting the Money Man on the couch with a cup of punch, willing to hear the pitch.

Not much of a pitch, really. As dark and detail-free as his own Money Man story, but it had the advantage of taking long enough to tell that we've had the opportunity to see the old MM in action, get our own sense of his skillz.

Mitt began the year in most people's minds as a rather shallow rich dick bereft of serious ideas about how to solve the country's serious problems, indeed even of any real knowledge of how most of us live.

Today, a short three seasons later, Mitt stands in most people's minds as a shallow rich dick bereft of serious ideas about how to solve the country's serious problems, indeed of any real knowledge of how most of us live.

All this accomplished at a cost of half a billion dollars.

Maybe we should let her go out with the black guy again. They seemed to get along well.
