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:

A few months ago I wrote this diary, silly me.  I was surprised at the comments section, again silly me.  But I thought the point of being a Democrat was to elect Democrats.  The point of a county and state Democratic party was to elect our Democratic candidates.  


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).

I still think it's a WTF moment and a slap in the face to all the candidates, the members and volunteers in county parties for the county chair of the Democratic party to endorse the opposing republican candidate.  What one does in the privacy of the voting booth is one's own business but when you accept the chair of a Democratic party it goes with the job description that the chair supports the candidate that won the Democratic primary.

So here is my attempt again to say that Buono has a good chance of winning NJ if Democratic leaders will support her. And it's not just me.  There must be other silly people out there.  

Christie is a terrible governor with a terrible record.  Buono is a great candidate.  With some work, she can pull it off.  The Democratic party is supposed to help her campaign.  She's their candidate.  They shouldn't work against her.  If we don't run and fight for each seat, we will never win.
