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.
The White House released a photo of President Obama skeet shooting today. Of course this has put the right-wing blogosphere into a tizzy. They have criticized the President for everything from his form to stating that the photo is staged or Photoshopped. No matter what the President does it will be wrong to those on the right, so I don't know why he even tries to please them.
Of course none of this compares to the Republican reaction to President Obama warning Americans of the dangers of eating yellow snow during this week's radio address. Immediately after the address House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell held a press conference to announce the introduction a bill that would preserve the rights of Americans to eat yellow snow and to tout the health benefits of eating yellow snow. The Golden Retriever, Beagle, and Collie lobbyists appeared on stage behind Congressman Boehner and Senator McConnell with tails wagging which is being taken as a victory for their clients.
Shortly afterwards Rush Limbaugh went on the air and stated that conservatives across the southern states were up in arms about the socialist agenda that prevents snow from falling in the south, thus preventing southerners from enjoying yellow snow. The Drudge Report and Breitbart.com have picked up the story and have posted videos of a janitor working at the USDA stating that, “Yes…no snow…in…the south…socialism.” It is unknown at this time if the video was manipulated in anyway.
I wish those on the right would just grow up. This kind of thing stopped being funny when I was about ten years old.
