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:

Hahahahahahahahahahaha...!!!!! Oh, my goodness! The Asheville Citizen-Times boasts this headline today atop the front page:

Meadows: I'm not Romney


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).

Way to run from the top of the ticket, slimeball. In the recently redistricted 11th way out west in the mountains of No' Cackalackie - previously represented by notorious (and thankfully retiring) pseudo-Dem Heath Shuler - the Republican candidate, Mark Meadows, is running AWAY from Mitt Romney.

"It might come as a surprise, but Mitt Romney didn't call me before he made those comments and ask my advice," Meadows said.
Here is a video link for the forum at WLOS-TV in Asheville.

Meanwhile, Meadows has officially endorsed Romney for POTUS, while the Democrat in the race for this open seat - Hayden Rogers - is playing all-out to the Shuler Blue Dog demographic and has NOT endorsed President Obama for a second term.

Meadows is trying to distance himself from the loser at the top of the Republican ticket, but his positions on the issues are virtually indistinguishable from Romney/Ryan's. As they say in these parts, that dog won't hunt.

The next debate is scheduled for October 19th, and will be hosted/broadcast by WWNC radio.
