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:

I think this is brilliant. It's John Fugelsang’s rant about South Carolina after Mark Sanford won the recent special election.

More under the orange croissant of liberalism


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).

Here’s the video, which is a non-stop well-written flood of words, mostly about Mark Sanford (announced sarcastically as a message from the South Carolina Board of Tourism):

Watch and listen to the whole thing. Here are a few highlights:

I love this line:

Our bottomless supply of duplicitous double-talking teabags.
He shames Strom Thurmond, Lindsey Graham, Joe Wilson, Jim DeMint, and Andre Bauer. (He mistakenly says Strom Thurmond fought against segregation -- I think he meant Thurmond fought against integration. Probably a typo in the script. We know what he means.)

He talks about Mark Sanford’s Argentine girlfriend and trespassing in his ex-wife’s home.

He concludes with this:

Because from being the first state to quit America so we could keep slaves to cutting our entire state’s HIV/AIDS budget, we’ve got a breath-taking history of being manly men with a manly devotion to man’s inhumanity to man. Our politicians believe Darwin was wrong and we here in South Carolina are here to prove it.
I love it.
