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:

I just discovered this and it combines my favorite new Saturday Night Live character with one of the craziest politicians I loathe.  I just wanted to share it all with you.

I was recently accepted into the Knowledge Democrats group and I'm proud to be a part of it.  I was going through some older diaries and I stumbled upon this diary about Bachmann's last congressional opponent, Jim Graves (D. MN):

After Graves dropped out, pipsorcle said it best:

it's clear Jim Graves really ran in Minnesota's 6th Congressional District race mainly because of Michelle Bachmann.  In that aspect, because Graves, a successful business leader himself, ran a campaign last year that almost defeated Bachmann and brought more votes into Democratic territory than before, there's been more pressure on her than ever before.

So if you really think about it, Jim Graves did defeat Michelle Bachmann.  He just didn't do it in November 2012.

Well said indeed.  Hope you enjoyed the late night laugh.  Have a good night and check out the Knowledge Democrats group, it's pretty cool:
