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:

So it appears that Wisconsin is once again back in the spotlight if this analysis from the Huffington Post is accurate. Tonight their lead story is about R$ and Preibus moving into Wisconsin as an alternative to Ohio. The theory is that Wisconsin hasn't had the heavy advertising that branded R$ as the lying, job exporting, tax evading hack that he is. See full story here:


What surprises me regarding this analysis is that if there was a state in this union that had experienced a lying politician saying one thing when running and doing another once elected it would be Wisconsin. In addition the campaign seems to be hiding the "Warlock " Ryan. He has spent more time in Texas this week than in Wisconsin. So either this is a last minute desperate move or they figure Ryan can't help much.

Regardless, it seems that Wisconsin once again must be called upon to rise to the challenge. I know Wisconsinites must wonder why they are on the front lines again. I hope they know that we all have come to appreciate their tenacity and the strong history of supporting labor and working families.

I look forward to hearing from puddytat and others on the ground to hear their analysis. If the Huffington Post analysis is correct, Wisconsin could Be the state that ends our national R$ nightmare.
