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.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
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.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
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).
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.
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.
As expected, a new GOP “We're the Party of New” propaganda video has been released. The video cycles between sequences of happy, smiling citizens of all backgrounds and... Reince Priebus, as he gives what appears to be some sort of motivational-inspirational speech designed to convince the country just how awesome the Republican Party really is.
Here I was, hoping against all hope, that somehow this would be the one that would finally get me to say, despite all evidence to the contrary:
Wow! Where have I been all this time? The Republican party really is...for me.
Years of watching the GOP destroy this country have made me a bit of a tough sell however, so I offer the two-minute-long video below for you to decide for yourself.
Just try to keep an open mind. And a straight face.
My favorite part? This one, where Priebus emphatically says:
And to those of you who have left the party, we want to earn your trust again. We're gonna be a Republican party that people will want to join. A party that inspires again.
It doesn't matter where you live, who you are, what you look like, or what your last name is...
Ha ha. Tell that to Barack Hussein Obama.
Ok, so how has this performance been received by viewers so far? The rave reviews are pouring in:
“Tepid.” — Member #227087 at a prominent blog site
“FAIL.”— Mr. D. Head
“Insincere and lacking substance.” — Jerome Garcia
“Charisma-challenged presentation misses the mark.” — Disappointed in Seattle
“Where's the beef?” — disgruntled lady at a fast food restaurant
So there you have it. Five out of five sockpuppet reviewers agree: the Republican Party has a long way to go before those shunned by the party up until about two days ago start stampeding back into their arms.
In other words, it's gonna take alot more than some dumbfuck video, Reince, to earn that trust again.
