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:

Appearing on Fox News this Sunday, Rick Perry said his slut-shaming comments Wendy Davis were meant as a compliment to her. Sounding a lot more prepared and sober than he did in his Republican primary performances, he said:

JOHN ROBERTS (HOST): In hindsight do you regret those comments and do you think that if you decide to run for president again in 2016, that those comments could hurt you with independent women?

PERRY: Actually, those comments were meant to be a compliment to her for what she had accomplished in her life, and you think about where she came from, what she’s accomplished. And as a matter of fact, I would think that she’s very proud of that as well. My point was that saving a life and letting that life come to its fulfillment and all the good things that happened. You never know who’s going to be considered to be an extraordinary individual who’s going to make that real impact and life. And that was our point that we were making, and nothing else. Nothing more.


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).

He also vowed to get the restrictive abortion bill which was filibustered by Davis passed in a special session he will call in the next ten days, accusing Democrats of unprecedented 'mob rule' in preventing the bill from being passed. Of course, calling an unpredecented special session is just fine.

Perry also accused Democrats of using “mob rule” because noisy spectators prevented the state Senate from voting on the abortion bill after Republicans forced Davis to end her 11 hour filibuster.

“You know, it never happened before,” he said. “When you look at the history of Texas, people have relayed to me that never have they seen that type of mob rule come in and discombobulate a legislative session. And Texans want to protect life, and that’s the bottom line here.”

The Texas governor predicted that the abortion bill would be passed within the first ten days of a special session that he called after the last defeat.

Perry has no plans to go away and may as well have said he's running for President in 2016. He seems to be practicing very diligently.
"That's an option out there," he said when asked about 2016, adding that he still has a lot of work to do in Texas.

He also didn't reveal whether he would run for another gubernatorial term, saying that he would make an announcement about that on Monday.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's big announcement.
