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:

Yeah, I know that this is old news, but I figured I'd add my two cents.

Remember when Rick Perry (R, N*ggerhead Ranch) tried to lure businesses from California to Texas? That really burned my ass. Of course, his idiotic publicity stunt didn't work, but it did manage to piss me off, personally and probably did the same for almost everyone else in the USA's most populous state.

This was one of the dumbest moves I've seen a Republican do since the Bush administration decided that the best way to stimulate the economy and stave off a near catastrophic recession was to give every tax payer $300. Remember that?

My closing arguments below the orange hoopty-do...


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).

Perry wanted to take jobs away from Americans in California and give them to Americans in Texas? What a fucking patriot. Love of country right there. Hey Rick, you want to move jobs out of somewhere and put them in Texas? Go to China! Get some of those jobs back! Asshole.

But I think that in political terms, Perry exposed his flank on the National stage. This dumb-ass move will be so easy for Democrats to demagog that it is going to sink him if he ever tries to run for anything outside of Texas.

Obviously, I would never vote for him because a) he's a complete asshole and b) I'm not jacked up on pain killers. But more broadly, I think that his failed exploit cost him any future chance at higher office. I doubt even Texans would put a guy like that in the senate.

Fuck you, Rick!

Oh, and Texas Kossacks- you guys have my heart-felt sympathy. What a jackass of a governor. Seriously.
