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:

Romney's supporters are mean and have gotten meaner since the first debate.  

My cousin is 20, attends Post University in Waterbury,CT.  I've know her since she was born and I've enjoyed watching her grow into a very politically aware young adult.  She was inspired by Obama when she heard him speak at Weslyan University's Commencement back in 2008.  She's looking forward to voting for Obama as her first vote in a Presidential Election.

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).

Last week, the day after the debate, she went to her car parked in Waterbury and saw this nasty note attached:
romney note2

If you can't make out the text, it says:

"Dear driver,
I would like to inform you that someone vandalized your car by placing an Obama sticker on it.  You need to remove it as soon as you can before people begin to think that you are an idiot.  
This is not surprising, but it's extremely rude.  I live in a swing state, so I often encounter Romney stickers (and George Allen stickers, McCain & Bush stickers in the past).  Sometimes I grit my teeth a little, sometimes I even silently curse to myself.  

But I would never leave a note or mess with a sticker or anything like that.  

Has anything like this happened to you?  If so, please post a comment about it here.
