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:

but he's getting hammered (not in a Merlot way).

I don't know what it means, but John Boehner keeps posting crap about how President Obama and the Democrats won't negotiate, even though the House keeps on trying and trying to fund the government, really truly the things the American People want, bit by bit.  And it's not flying.  On his very own page.

He's getting a lot of comments and very very very very very little love.  People aren't falling for this bullshit, people are pissed, and people are telling him in no uncertain terms this is John Boehner's shutdown and threat, and telling him to just put the vote to the floor already!

This is a working tactic.  Speaker Boehner isn't allowing the people's own elected representatives to vote on how to do our basic housekeeping like paying our bills.

And hat trick to the genius who gave us 2 words in her diary...Prove it!  Very awesome and I'm seeing and hearing it.  

But let's add to Prove It; and say Let MY Representative vote! And let my Representative answer to me!

Rambling diary, but not gonna edit because I'm a bit tired and a bit tipsy.

Bottom line, closing argument?  John Boehner will go down in history, but I doubt it will be because he "saved the American People".  From health care.

Oh, and he's getting crushed on his own wee FB page.

And I'm still freaking scared.  This is fucked up.  No jihadists ever scared me, until they came glowing orange and BYOB of Merlot.  With their lizard brain. 9 days...
