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:

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).

Proud Maryland native and House member Elijah Cummings (D) really was annoyed this morning with Mo(u)rning Jo(k)e laughing off voter suppression efforts throughout the country from Republicans yesterday.

And he certainly expressed that quite candidly to them face to face.

"This thing, I listen to you all Joe yesterday, y'all were kind of laughing about it. It's a very serious issue. 

 It's an emotional (issue) . I predicted a very long time ago that African-American people would come out in record numbers, and that is already happening in my district. They are coming out in records numbers because they do not like the idea that there seems to be a concerted effort to stop them for voting."  
Scarborough blamed David Gregory, who is even worse of course, with his silence on the issue on Meet The Press all throughout the election season despite supposedly being a professional multi-million dollar journalist. And his silence there and then for everyone to see.

Kathy Kay looked shocked and perplexed, wondering why would Republicans try and deny people, including black Republicans, the right to vote. It was Beltway centrist media figures off their high, seclusion bubble in D.C. and smacked into reality for a rare refreshing time.

It was a telling incident of many on the Mo(u)rning Jo(k)e of a election show, three hours more than its regular version of sad, vapid centrist dribble.

Thankfully Elijah Cummings was not tolerating their nonsense, especially Gregory and Scarborough's, not one bit. 

(From The Whole Delivery, hearing your Election Day stories, whether it was smooth or there were shenanigans, have a great day and God Bless).
