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:

Chris Christie Word of the Day:  Hysteria.

Gov. Christie Hits Bridgegate ‘Hysteria’

by David Matthau, nj1015.com -- February 26, 2014

“We’re going through an internal investigation, all of this stuff will come out over an appropriate period of time,” the governor added, “and I’m not going to give in to the hysteria of questions that are given from folks that have information today that I didn’t have earlier.”

Chris Christie Word of the Day:  Don't ask.

Christie unwilling to give into Bridgegate 'hysteria'

by Matthew Arco, politickernj.com --  February 26, 2014

The governor’s response came after Scott inquired why Christie never asked former Port Authority executive and political ally, Bill Baroni, additional questions about the lane closures.

I didn’t ask the questions because I didn’t think they needed to be asked,” he said, explaining he took Baroni at his word about the closures.

Don't ask ... Don't Think.


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).

Chris Christie Word of the Day:  Don't speculate.

Chris Christie on Ask the Governor

by Townsquare News Staff, nj1015.com -- February 26, 2014

7:14: Discussing Bridget Kelly, the Governor said he ordered her firing, and says he had no face to face with her on that day. “On Dec. 12 and 13, she was questioned extensively by her superiors….At the end of the day if someone is not going to tell you the truth, they are not going to tell you truth.”

7:15: “I am no longer going to speculate on what I don’t know about,” responding to questions about whether Kelly ordered lane closures.

7:48: Disagrees with [Patrick] Foye on Bridgegate.

and some final Chris Christie Words of the Day:  

Don't agree ... Don't know.

Don't Answer Hysterical Questions.

Do wait an appropriate period of time, for that internal investigation, to answer all this stuff.

Chris Christie:  Over and Out.  That is all, hysterical people.
