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.
After all the whining by Republicans about Obama's made up apology tour to the world they really need to have a rethink if they ever want to be competitive again.
They need to apologize to women for all the shit they have stirred by the utter stupidity coming from their mouths. This cost them the senate and the presidency.
They need to apologize to all people of color for their obvious race baiting, otherwise they will can never hope to win again.
They need to apologize to the gay community for the lies they have spread whilst cowering behind their religion.
They need to apologize to the mythical 47% for their elitist bullshit and stop calling half of Americans needy.
They need to apologize for not even trying to govern for the last two years. If the House continues to be Tea Party sounding board; they will lose the House in two years time and may even hand a super-majority to the Democratic Party in the Senate.
Every conservative pundit that says "we were not conservative enough" should be sent to Lindsey Graham's office to receive a slap.
There are not enough angry white men left, have you got that? However there are plenty of young women to keep you out of office for the foreseeable future.
Stop being the sexists last refuge.
Stop being the bigots go to party.
Stop being the anti-science brigade
Stop as Lewis Black would say, being the ball washers for the elite.
Stop mocking the rest of the world by an outdated foreign policy.
Join the 21st Century.
Otherwise this election will seem like a victory.
