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:

Dinesh D'Souza has just penned one of the most bizarre and delusional post-election observations to emerge from the conservative, chattering class.

Please, proceed D'Souza:

Let us collectively take this opportunity to point and laugh at this New York Times bestseller, at this author of unintentionally satirical works such as Obama's America and The Roots of Obama's Rage – works which tried to scare Americans by scarring them with his fictions about Obama.  

Let us laugh at his perverse worldview. At his pathetic attempts to (still) scare us. At his, well...

...at the fact that he has lost.

All that remains for D'Souza? The ramblings of a manipulative mind whose past writings failed their mark, and whose current writings are merely the echoes of someone defeated, hollering within the caverns of his famished intellect, hoping someone, somewhere will heed his Lion King metaphor.

Did you hear that? A Lion King metaphor? For Obama? After his electoral victory? After casting aside D'Souza, whose sole purpose for the last four years has been defeating Obama with a poison-tipped pen?

And D'Souza's response? The Lion King? Be prepared?
