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:

Gohmert is crazy, yes.  But so is the very idea of allowing a default on our national debt.  However, it doesn't seem crazy if your intent is do burn down the country so you can seize it.  So in that context, what had once crossed the crazy border line, I can't not accept it as possibility any longer.  When Louie Gohmert, TX-R(evolutionary), recently compared John McCain to Al-Queada, was he reflecting the sentiments of RedState, or refining their argument, spinning their feed back loop?  Is Gohmert now telling us the next move of the Republicans in the House, after default is reached:

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) isn't sure whether he'll support a debt limit deal, but he is sure of one thing: a debt default would be President Barack Obama's fault.

A reporter for The Young Turks asked Gohmert whether he'd support a bill that would raise the debt ceiling at the Values Voter Summit on Friday.

"The word 'deal' concerns me," he said. "If it's good for America."

When asked whether he would allow the government to default on its debt, Gohmert projected the responsibility for such circumstances onto Obama.

"No," he said, "that would be an impeachable offense by the president."  

Gohmert has continuously attempted to diffuse blame for a potential breach of the debt ceiling -- and the government shutdown -- as an Oct. 17 debt limit deadline looms.

Is that what GOP is planning next, to continue the path of madness we're on?  Hell bent for complete destruction of the American government in full recognition of the pyrrhic fate?  How better to further the calcification of our country's government works than to impeach the President on conjured charges of killing the nation's economy?  30% of the people already believe it.  An extended show trial broadcast live on Fox and reverberated throughout their echo chamber could sway enough to bring that number to a larger, more intransigent minority or even a majority; I've not had less faith in the American citizens understanding of how our government actually works than throughout the government shutdown / default debacle.  A nation that does not understand that Congress alone is responsible for generating the nation's budget does not understand why Obama should not be impeached.  

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).
