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.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
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.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
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).
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.
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.
Senate minority whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) made waves on Twitter Saturday night when he posted the following: "Amazing what WH will do to distract attention from O-care."
The posting came just after the announcement of an agreement between Iran and six other nations, including the United States, to limit Iran's nuclear program in exchange for easing sanctions on the Islamic republic. According to Politico, Cornyn has argued for stricter sanctions against Iran.
Cornyn is one of several Republicans who have criticized the deal, but he is (so far) the first to link negotiations with Iran to the problems with the rollout of healthcare.gov and the Affordable Care Act. - AL.com, 11/24/13
President Obama later unveiled details of the agreement, saying, "simply put, they cut off Iran’s most likely paths to a bomb."
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) also weighed in on the agreement, tweeting, "Unless the agreement requires dismantling of the Iranian centrifuges, we really haven't gained anything."
As part of the deal, the U.S. would provide $6 to $7 billion in sanctions relief and in exchange, Iran would agree to stop enriching uranium beyond a 5% level — meaning they would have to dismantle the links between networks of centrifuges, according to The New York Times. - Business Insider, 11/23/13
Don't worry, David Plouffe went to Twitter and made a clown out of Cornyn:
