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:

 


Welcome to the January 18, 2013 Post Game Show for Mojo Friday!

 

Today's Mojo Friday diary is Mojo Friday - Scam, Sham and Flim-Flam - Edition


Fool me once, shame on you! Fool me twice, shame on me!

Isn't that the way of it ... especially with groups like today's Republican Party, the NRA, many of the anti-gay (people or marriage) or anti-abortion groups?  The only thing each of them is missing is the foam at the mouth.  For me, the worst of it is the gullibility of our national media ... villagers or not.  For them, it seems to be a surprise every time. They are truly the marks of our modern age, taken over and over again by anyone with a scam.  I do wonder how they every hold onto their pants, their hats or their money.

This weekend, also, are the NFL championship games.  Tell us below who you're rooting for, or against!, or if you have something else in mind!

The Mojo Friday Postgame is a statistical analysis of the Mojo Friday diary that is posted every Friday morning at 10:30 a.m. ET. For further info please check out  Jez's 'Official' "Mojo Friday Snecktionary"  MKinTN posted a diary to help everyone achieve greater success called How to Succeed at Mojo Friday Without Really Trying.
