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:

Darth Issa:  Lord Vader, the luncheon this Tuesday will be splendid for the Imperial Army (Republicans) to come together and plan our approach.
Darth Vader:  Yes, the event would be a good asset to the cause of the Sith.  The Emperor would approve.
Darth Issa:  The Rebels (Democrats) can't stop us this time.
Darth Vader:  They will join us or die.
Don't you just love events like this being held in exclusive clubs and hosting rich fat cats like Rep. Darrell Issa with REAL dialog and discussion about the issues we face in America?

I mean, it's not as if Issa is REALLY looking to meet his constituents of California's 49th Congressional District.  He's just looking to meet constituents of the 49th Congressional District that can afford to attend this event.

Behold the details:


The San Juan Capistrano, Dana Point and San Clemente chambers of commerce have joined together to present a special lunchtime event with Congressman Darrell Issa on Tuesday, January 29.

Redistricting has shifted much of south Orange County into the district represented by Issa. Guests at the event will have the chance to meet the congressman and hear him speak about his role serving the three cities in the House of Representatives.

His role, which is what?  Any Kossack here want to volunteer to point out what Darrell Issa's real role is?
The luncheon will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club, 26772 Avery Parkway, Mission Viejo.
A golf club!  This is a superb way for country club members to mingle and really talk about "critical" thinking in the world of politics.
The cost to attend the event is $35 per person and includes a buffet lunch. Reservations for tables of 12 are available for $400. For $1,000, guests can receive premium reserved seating for four and recognition as presenting sponsors. For $250, guests will receive reserved seating for two and recognition as supporting sponsors.
$250?  $400?  I can't afford that much!  Who is Issa REALLY catering to?

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).

Here's the suck part:

RSVPs are required by Friday, January 25. Forms are available through the San Juan Capistrano Chamber of Commerce or can be downloaded and printed out by clicking here. For more information, call 949.493.4700.
Damn it!  I wanted to register but no, I can't since there was a deadline.

Oh well.  Let's just go ahead and phone the line to vent our frustration at the venue, Issa and his politics.

Actually, we might just go ahead and crash the event if we could.  Nah, on second thought it would be better to do a honk-n-wave outside of the venue.  That way, Issa and his fellas can sense they aren't alone.

Remember, the address is as follows:

Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club, 26772 Avery Parkway, Mission Viejo, CA.
Come on residents of the CA-49 district!  Look alive here!  :)
