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:

It's been a rough year for the Grand Old Party.  Let's look back at some fond memories of how the Republicans lost the War on 2012.


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).

10) Scott Brown loses his Senate seat, hands the keys to Ted Kennedy's washroom to Elizabeth Warren.

9) Todd Aiken proved his theory of legitimate rape politically, as the body politic of Missouri aborts his Senate campaign.

8) FOX News credibility goes up in smoke after admitting the channel is just Soviet-style propaganda for the Republicans--not to mention does Soviet-style wiretapping for news ratings.

7) Overweight and overwrought Rush Limbaugh loses half of his advertisers and a number of his stations after he loses highly publicized arm-wrestling match with legal lion Sandra Fluke in her first-ever televised match.

6) Karl Rove loses his cushy job as Fox prognosticator, his superPACs spending looks like what he accuses Democrats of: boatloads of cash all spent ineffectively.  
6A) He also loses his National Math Merit Badge to Nate Silver.

5) No More Mr. Nice President: Obama stops trying to make deals with the GOP no matter what the deal is, finally wins a hand of gin rummy.  

4) John Boehner is unable keep his majority in the House of Representatives in line, forced to return his last name's pronunciation to "boner."

3) Mitt Romney loses to President Obama, tries rapping the Beatles song "Money Can't Buy Me Love--Or The Presidency" and gets kicked out of Tony Awards ceremony.

2) Fiscal conservative policy defects to the Democrats in response to the Republican platform of "Lower taxes for the rich always means more money for government!"

1) Sanity.

Good night and good luck, everyone.  See you in 2013!
