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.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  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:

File this sketch (video below) under "utterly devastating," a folder Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart have come to monopolize, particularly as we approach the November elections.

Mediate sets the scene for us:

On Monday night, Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert took an in-depth look at America’s “new, vilified underclass:” THE RICH.

“In the post-crash stock market recovery, the top 1% of earners only got 93% of the gains,” Colbert explained. “What happened to that other 7%, Mr. President? Did it go for birth control for the Muslim Brotherhood? Solyndra stock options for the Black Panthers? Where?”

The rest is pure satirical genius:

Yes, the uber-rich are struggling because President Obama has hurt their feelings, has made them feel under-appreciated as they wallow in their untold fortunes and low tax rates.

A pity party, indeed.
