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:

Republicans are misunderstood.  Todd Aiken and Richard Mourdock are actually docile creatures who uphold and protect women's rights!  

The misunderstanding of the GOP is all cleared up in today's NY Times triumphant article by a true champion of truth and reality, Ross Douthat.  He clears up the mess calling the Republican plot to ban abortion "imaginary" and really puts everyone at ease by claiming that Mitt Romney's threat to ban abortion in cases of rape is "illusory".

Thank you Ross, for clearing that up!  

Ross also goes on to explain that Obama is merely cozying up to women so they can deliver him the WH again.

What a jerk this Douthat dude is!  He writes the lamest crap!

If there is an insincere candidate in this election, with a proven character trait of cozying up to whom ever and what ever in order to score some votes, it is Mitt.

The clincher comes at the end when Douthat tries desperately to throw a wedge into the union of Hillary and Obama supporters by stating that "Hillary would never conclude her race " like Obama.  Well I will save my French....

The fact is that Ross Douthat is getting on my nerves.  I apologize for the short diary, but I had to vent.  This guy get's paid for writing this crap?  wow!

Here is the full article in case you need to warm up during Sandy....


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).

Extended (Optional)


Does Ross Douthat's writing annoy you?
