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:

Hat-tip to Paleo for the link:  talking points memo: reid backs off on nuclear option

I was so pissed to hear this i forgot to link the story...

Jesus H Christ.... is Harry Reid the most IMPOTENT Dem senator we've ever had?

You can damn bet every time this guy makes a threat, IT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN.

He's that scrawny kid who thinks he's going to bluff the jocks about a fist fight in the schoolyard after school.  When 3:30 hits, he's peddling has ass off to run home and hide under mommy's dress.

"Nuclear Option" my fucking ass.  Enough with the constant bullshit threats and do something about your dysfunctional-ass house.

I'm starting to think this guy is a slicker Joe Lieberman


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).

No wonder the Right thinks Dems are wussies.... because our Senate leader IS A FUCKING WUSS.

What we need are fighters, not farters...

Nothing reeks of weakness more than empty threats.

Poor Nancy Pelosi has been completely sidelined, when it's her kind of mature but tough fighting spirit that we need.

To steal a quote that crazy Cajun Carville; "If Nancy gave Harry Reid a cojone, they'd both have two"
