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:

This will be a short one. Just wanting to let my fellow Kossacks know that Rush Limbaugh has given up the fight on "gay marriage" (soon to be JUST marriage).

I, of course, put "gay marriage" in quotes, because this is a term that we must kill. The only term we should be using in this moment of change is "marriage equality", then when change happens, it'll just be "marriage".

But I digress.



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).

This should come as no surprise to those in reality-based communities like DailyKos (since marriage equality has been kicking MAJOR ASS lately), but wingnuts must be hurtin'!

Now, some of you may argue that sicne Rush Limbough is becoming increasingly irrelevant with each passing day, why should we care?

Well, I'd... have to agree with you mostly! However, there are still a few million brain dead listeners out there (no doubt, rabidly opposed to marriage equality). As I said before, they HAVE to be hurtin' right now!

After all, what does it say about your entire conservative "movement", when your toughest, most stalwart warrior admits the the fight is OVER?!?

So, what is his reasoning for giving up the fight?

Well, apparently, the fight for "tradition marriage" was lost when conservatives gave into the "homosexual lobby's" (AKA, "homo mafia" AKA "gay agenda") purposeful re-terming of language and began using terms like... "traditional marriage"...


Because the push for marriage equality is TOTALLY about pissing social conservatives off!

It is BY NO MEANS about, say, stories like Edie's marriage to her wife who, after nearly 50 years of being in a committed, monogamous relationship (something I'm Rush Limbaugh is experienced with... NOT), died of natural causes, after which the federal government treated her relationship as a second class marriage by taxing her unfairly!

Nope! This push for marriage equality isn't about people's lives at all...

/end sarc (is this really needed?)

Well folks! Just as Kos emphatically stated during the election "We're winning", it kinda goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway.

The bigots are losing. We are winning!
