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.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
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.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
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).
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.
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.
Yesterday my wife and I were among about 20 supporters of President Obama standing on a street corner in Merritt Island, Fla. waving signs and rallying people to vote for the President.
As expected, we got a lot of honks and thumbs up from a diverse group of motorists...not to mention a few middle fingers, thumbs down and shouts filled with expletives. But all in all, it was a very pleasant experience. Gotta admit I was pleasantly surprised by the number of whites who showed their support as they drove by...especially older white folks. And I'm happy to report that we got far more honks of support and thumbs up than the Romney supporters working the corner right across the street. This even in a heavily red area like Brevard County.
But what made our day was when an older white couple drove by in a raggedy pickup truck. I'm assuming they were husband and wife, and the husband was driving. As they went by the wife was holding her arm out of the window giving us a thumbs up with her hand held down low so her husband couldn't see it.
She was sending us this signal I think: "I'm voting for Obama, but if my husband knew all hell would break loose." Makes you wonder how many women across America are secretly supporting PBO and other Democrats. I suspect there are millions.
