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:

Hello peasants, Rita Von Mittensberg here. Yes, you heard me right; that if you do not vote for me my minions will tear the world apart.

Only I can appease the ravening hordes lurking in the halls of congress, only I can calm with the beast skulking in their hearts. My opponent would only feed their hunger for destruction, you would be doomed.

That these screaming harpies and I are of the same mind is beside the point, that we drink tea from the same fiery chalice, irrelevant. Only I can be truly bipartisan with mine own host.

If you fail me; your budgets will burn, your legislation will turn to ashes, and the economy will be crêpe Suzette. However; you can save yourselves from their slavering jaws; vote for their mistress, and their hatred will be abate.

You have no choice other than to love me, or you will surly burn for your disloyalty. The right to rule is mine, mine I say. Defy me and the obstruction of the last four years will seem like a spring break, you will kneel before me or be fed to the wolves.

Whine all you like, but I am holding out the olive branch of bipartisanship here, vote for me; or the apocalypse will be upon you. You cannot say you have not be warned, you have a choice, vote for me otherwise you will pay for your insolence.

Kneel before me or I will

Release the Kraken!
