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.

  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:

Intro

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).

Making a list and checking it twice.

So tonight is organization night and it goes just as far as it goes, which is to say Sunday 12/30 when Comedy Central's listings run out.  Sorry jlms qkw, I'll get them as soon as I can.

I've included all the 11 pm to midnight programming on our usual Monday - Friday schedule as well as some additional items of interest, principally Futurama ek'smas episodes and South Park specials.  I see that there is a healthy mixture of Beavis and Butthead where I haven't decided if it's new or not.  If new my activist brother will probably want me to tape it for him because he's a huge fan (heh heh, heh heh heh, he said huge).

DocuDharma

As is our custom we'll be attempting to provide amusement when most sources of it are disrupted because that's when you'll need it most.  I'll also be attempting to develop a consolidated Digest for 2012, we do occasionally feature some good stuff along with the crap I pump out and I think there are a few items of interest that may have been generally overlooked.

Tonight's Interviews

Full The Daily Show (12/6)

More Chris Christie than you are probably interested in-

Part 1

Part 2

Full The Colbert Report

On the other hand, I wish Stephen had more time with his guests (except when he's doing that Big Jim/Billy Sol Farm Celebrity Sing-a-long thing).

In new news I did manage to see The Hobbit this weekend and found it much more enjoyable than the critics suggested and alas it appears Nikki Hally has decided to go in a different direction for a replacement for Jim DeMint.

On with the show.
