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:

What the....  *face palm*  Another fundraiser?  Look, folks need to understand: Yes, I gave my friend President Bush help with funding for the Iraq War but those were difficult times.  We NEED to deal with the debt too.  Scherr forgets, I have a legal background too but I've been a judge too.  See if she can top that!
Looks like Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Maxey Scherr appears to be everywhere in Texas and campaigning more than we can even keep track of.  Not too long ago we reported Scherr had a Jan 29th campaign fundraising event in Houston, TX.

Now it looks like on Jan 27th, Scherr and her campaign will be hosting a fundraiser in Austin, TX in the evening.

Since it's early in the campaign season, I do mention that Maxey Scherr seems to be getting a lot of the attention and she has a good shot at getting the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate but there are three other Democratic candidates running so it will be interesting to see how this plays out in the primary race as the primary itself in Texas is March 4th (super early).

Although Scherr's website doesn't show yet where she stands on the issues, in the campaign ad it does reveal what she's for:

Raising Minimum Wage to $10/hour

Fixing and improving Obamacare, not letting the insurance industry have their way

Increasing support for public school system

Marriage Equality

And the line Scherr says in her ad is great from a message standpoint in terms of women's issues:  "When it comes to these issues, Cruz Control is Government Control, not individual rights.
