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:


Hahaha... "Michele Bachmann is an independent voice, working for us...." Bwahahahahaa. "Saying no to big spending...." Bringing both parties together for "building the St. Croix Bridge." "Helped secure funding for the St. Cloud Airport." Hahahahahhaa!!!! Because none of that was big spending, no siree. Hehhhheeeee.

"That's why I've been an in-DEE-pendent voice, working for you." Whoooooohhhheeeeee!!!!

Must. Catch. Breath.

Okay, better now. And I have just one question for Michele. How did she determine that the people in the other party she was working with to get all that pork (don't teabaggers hate pork? I'm confused) weren't those, you know, un-American ones that needed to be investigated?

If you appreciate this moment of levity courtesy Michele (and really, who doesn't need a good laugh about now) thank the man who forced her to make this wonderful, wonderful ad.

Thank Jim Graves for making Bachmann be so damned entertaining.


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)
