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:

Whilst browsing through my e-mail list, I recently read an extremely interesting e-mail.

You see, apparently Bain & Company is recruiting at my college. The e-mail contained all the typical things that a college recruiter does: the date of an information session, the deadline for the application, etc.

More below.


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).

The name Bain will instantly bring up the name Mitt Romney and his adventures at Bain Capital. Bain Capital, of course, is the famous company where Mitt Romney made a fortune by firing workers at manufacturing companies.

It’s quite strange to see Bain as just another company trying to recruit college graduates. We’ve all been so accustomed to seeing Bain linked with Mitt Romney that it’s very weird to talk about it without mentioning the Republican presidential nominee.

One wonders what effect the 2012 presidential campaign has had on Bain. The company is probably having a lot of trouble recruiting. It loses half the country (or 47%) instantly due to the link with Romney. Moreover, college graduates are generally a pretty liberal bunch. They’re probably quite a few very accomplished Obama voters who took one look at the name Bain and turned their sights to other companies. There are probably also not a few potential Democratic-voting clients who decided not to employ Bain due to its Romney link.

In fact, Bain & Company is a different company from Bain Capital the consulting firm which Romney worked at. But most people won’t notice that difference. So somebody at Bain is almost certainly contemplating a name change right now.
