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:

If there was any doubt that Debbie Halvorson is not a real Democrat, and cares about the NRA more than people, then those have been put to rest as Halvorson went to Fox News to get gun nuts to vote for her.


I would like to take this opportunity to ask the National Rifle Association(the NRA) to please put me, PistolSO, on their enemies list.   I also wholehearted endorse Robin Kelly for Congress.  Kelly is a proven progressive who is more than qualified to take her rightful place in Congress.   She also will take on the NRA, with her F rating from them.   In this election, where the frontrunners are two progressives who differ on a single issue(guns) and a Fox News Democrat who proudly calls her a Blue Dog, the choice is clear:  Robin Kelly.  

To those who back Toi Hutchison, I like her progressive record over all.  But she is entirely too gun friendly, and right now we need as many progressive voices as we can get to Shut Down the NRA.
