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:

Rush Limbaugh

From the transcript:

RUSH: There are two polls out now that have Romney 50, Obama 46 with likely voters. Two polls. The latest Gallup is just out: Romney is at the magic 50% level with likely voters over Obama at 46%. It's a seven-day rolling average. These clowns at Public Policy Polling, the liberal outfit in North Carolina, also have it at Romney 50-46.

Public Policy Polling does this poll for the Daily Kos, that bedwetting bunch of website Democrat base people. So there's two polls at 50-46. You just better prepare yourself. The media's already got the story written: "Obama, comeback kid! Won big!" No matter what happens. Romney is gonna have to literally wipe the floor with Obama for him to be declared the winner of this thing tonight.

But Romney has all these stats I just mentioned. You want me to run through this again? I'd rather take some phone calls. Twenty-three million unemployed, 5% loss median family income, 47 million food stamps, one in six in poverty, and the unemployment rate really is 15%. There's no recovery; there's no progress. We're in the middle of a disaster, created and architected by Barack Obama. He asked for this economy. He ran for president. He wanted it.

He has run it into the ground! [emphasis added]

That's OK, in case you haven't seen them, I think these two diaries nailed Rush at least as hard:

Big Trouble in Limbaugh Land - October 16, 2012

Troubles pile up for Rush - favorite sponsor Angie's List faces a serious legal challenge - October 16, 2012

Rush Limbaugh's talk radio career is in a slow downward spiral in part because of the activism of consumers, volunteers, and activists who seek to hold Rush accountable for his hate speech. One very active group in this cause is Flush Rush on Facebook. Flush Rush and other, similar groups use the StopRush Database to inform advertisers about where their ads are appearing.
