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.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  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 song is based on Carl Perkins "Barefootin," which was made famous by Robert Parker. This is a song that was popular back in the day, and has enjoyed a rebirth of popularity thanks to a new TV commercial for a deck protection product.  

Intro

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).

                                      Your Darn Tootin’

Everybody get on your feet,
Hide your wallet, hide your ring,
Turn on the alarm, barricade your street,
Putin’s in town, he wants everything.

You’re darn tootin, that darn Putin,
You’re darn tootin, that darn Putin.

Went to a party the other night,
Long Tall Sasha had such a fright,
Putin was acting like a troglodyte,
He didn’t get home til after daylight.

You’re darn tootin, that darn Putin,
You’re darn tootin, that darn Putin.

Hey little girl with the red dress on,
Putin lost his shirt, do you see his brawn?
The vodka’s flows, he passes out on the lawn,
The extradition treaty will have to be redrawn.

You’re darn tootin, that darn Putin,
You’re darn tootin, that darn Putin.

Musical interlude

Lil Boris Henry he said to Misha,
Putin’s making Russia a pariah,
Supporting that Assad is anathema,
Faux pas after faux pas, and et-cet-era.

You’re darn tootin, that darn Putin,
You’re darn tootin, that darn Putin,
You’re darn tootin, that darn Putin,
You’re darn tootin, that darn Putin.
He don't have no clothes on.
