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:

Forget Muslims and Chechens-- the real threat to our safety is Elvis Impersonators! Last week an Elvis Impersonator sent the deadly ricin poison through the mails to the President and members of Congress in a vain attempt to spread terror. Then another Elvis Impersonator from Iowa engaged police in a 30-hour standoff on Sunday after a property dispute led to the man discharging a shotgun at officers and threatening to kill himself. Clearly the threat to America from Elvis Impersonators must be stopped.


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).

A short list of Elvis Impersonators who are terrorists:

1. Paul Kevin Curtis, the Mississippi Elvis impersonator accused of sending ricin-laced letters to Barack Obama and Republican Senator Roger Wicker of Mississippi

2. Michael Conley, a 64-year-old Elvis impersonator, allegedly locked himself inside a Florida motel along with his 28-year-old son, after Ft. Pierce cops came to arrest him on an outstanding warrant. During the encounter, Conley held up a vial filled with white powder, claiming that it was Ricin. He also claimed to have C-4 explosives.

3.  Elvis tribute artist, David Allen Credile, was arrested last May in Myrtle Beach, S.C., after allegedly punching a man in the face during a fight over a board game.

4. Elvis impersonator Mickey Reed triggers 30-hour police standoff in Iowa after discharging a shotgun and threatening to kill himself.

We must begin by demanding that all Elvis Impersonators register with the federal government. Only when Elvis impersonation is regulated and controlled by the government will Americans be safe. Be vigilant America. If you see an Elvis Impersonator, report that suspicious activity to the Department of Homeland Security's Jailhouse Rock department.
