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:

Will Bunch asks why.

That's why White House attempt to make Dick Cheney look good Press Secretary Jay Carney said that it's not the time to talk about guns:

As news filtered in Friday from the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said "today is not the day," to engage in a policy debate over gun control.
At least 20 children dead, and we shouldn't talk about it.

BTW, did you know that there was a school attack in China today?

No Deaths, though 22 were injured.  Guess what?  That guy used knives, and he didn't manage to kill anyone.

The problem is us.  I don't mean that it's the American public as a whole, I mean that specifically, the problem is the liberal community.

We let it slide.  We cut politicians slack, because they need this to fight challenges from the right.

Bull fucking shit.

Remember what happened when we (liberals) stopped accepting the argument that, "He's with us on everything but the war?"

Remember when we defeated Lieberman in the primary?  When we made politicans who were nominally on our side afraid of us?

That's when members of congress startet getting serious about getting the fuck out.

Gun control has to be a litmus test, like Iraq was, and Rov v. Wade is.

I don't care if the district he is running in includes Cletus, Alabama, and the Republican he is running against is a serial murderer.  We cannot support him for his vote for speaker.
