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:

After a meeting with Ambassador Susan Rice the gang of three said

"If you don't know what happened, just say you don't know what happened. People can push you to give explanations and you can say I don't want to give bad information. Here's what I can tell you -- the American people got bad information on the 16th of September, they got bad information from President Obama days after, and the question is, should they have been giving the information at all? If you can do nothing but give bad information, isn't it better to give no information at all?"
Good grief; the tie yourself up in knots double whine with a twist

All that you can hear here is, but, but, but can we have it anyway we please?

Dear god and these people are meant to be part of the greatest deliberative body on the planet?

I've heard better rhetoric on the Sunday School playground.

Do they ever think before they speak, or is it a preexisting condition of complete blather?

There was no way in heaven or earth that they were going to be satisfied but surely they could have got some of their staff to write a better script than that?


The final outstanding piece of contemplation offered by Sen. Ayotte

"had many more questions that need to be answered."
Brilliant, I wonder what they talked about in the meeting, perhaps next time they take the cotton wool out of their ears.

I'm in complete awe that they came out and managed to say nothing at all in a completely non intelligent way.

Makes me feel so warm inside that these people have such power.

But, but, but Obama, is all that is needed in Republican circles, or maybe they need a reboot?

Vacuous, idiotic and voted for.

It makes you want to weep.
