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:

let's take a moment here to remember the true losers of this campaign - Karl Rove, Crossroads GPS, and all those billionaires who threw hundreds of millions of dollars representing a puny fraction of their wealth at this election trying to buy their way into Government - their attempts to remake democracy in their image suffered a serious setback, and that makes me even happier than seeing Obama re-elected -


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).

but seriously, Karl - if Sheldon calls you and says "Hey - come on out to the desert 40 miles east of Las Vegas and I'll show you where I'm going to sink my next 100 million"  - or if the Koch Brothers call and say "Hey Karl, come on out to the gun range this weekend"

like dude, take a raincheck - especially for trips out to the desert or into the subbasement where the foundation for a new building is being laid - call in sick for a couple years - you don't think Jimmy Hoffa was taken out by his opponents do you? - how much money did you piss away and how much of it was for naught?  I'm sure you can point to some wins, but how many races did you truly influence?

you pissed away a lot of good money friend - money that could have gone into job creation - how many hookers and blow dealers did you rob from to fill that sinkhole with?   And on Fox you are like "wait, no - it CAN'T be over"  - the LOL's keep coming

keep it real Karl - we are the people of the United States of America, and if you think saying some nasty things a few hundred million times on TV can actually buy you an election - we'll see you back in 2016 - bring your checkbooks and your billionaires -

and to quote your old boss - Bring It On


EDIT - HOLY CRAP - the REC List tonight of all nights?!!?!?  honored and humbled - and I was just going to go to bed but I'll be back tomorrow - pax, DK - u earned it :)
