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:

 There have been some noted political figures with the name Ted ... Roosevelt and Kennedy quickly come to mind. Now we have the counter-balance pair of Teds, Cruz and Yoho... One looks and acts like he may host real tea parties in a closet and the other one is just plain stupid. This new crop of Teds seem to have agendas that include publicity stunts in order to get face time on Tv. So since they have put themselves out there to be judged like contestants on American idol saying absurd things to get a nod from the judges I will assume the position of Simon Cowl and let them know how they stack up.

   This is dreaded awful you call yourself a Politician? A Statesman?  That 15 minutes of fame your seeking does not work as well in politics. Being a sideshow on American Idol
Like the pants on the ground  guy or that terrible guy Asian guy who made a big wave they come and go. Sorry new Teds  we need leaders not connivers. Simon says no!
