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:

As you may or may not know, State Senator and gubernatorial candidate, Vincent Sheehen's (D. SC) campaign is fighting back against the Republican Governors Association's false attack ads on Medicaid Expansion by calling out the RGA's own chairman, Governor Chris "Bridgegate" Christie's (R. NJ) own support for expanding Medicaid:

The first Republican Governors Association TV spot aired yesterday against Vincent, and as we expected, it was full of hypocrisy. Their ad attacked Vincent for wanting to keep South Carolina's federal Medicaid tax dollars working to help South Carolinians.

But here’s the problem: Chris Christie, chair of the RGA, ALSO took Medicaid money for his own state of New Jersey.

So, we had a little fun and we made a few minor modifications to their ad to highlight their hypocrisy.

Take a look:

But here’s the real amazing part: We wouldn’t have been able to respond within 24 hours without your help. Your generosity to our Rapid Response Fund helped make this possible and we couldn’t be more grateful.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie gives a news conference in Trenton January 9, 2014. &nbsp;Christie on Thursday fired a top aide at the center of a brewing scandal that public officials orchestrated a massive traffic snarl on the busy George Washington Bridge to settle a political score. Christie told a news conference he was stunned and heartbroken by revelations that his staff was behind the traffic jam designed to punish a local mayor who declined to endorse Christie&#x27;s re-election bid. &nbsp; &nbsp;REUTERS/Carlo Allegri (UNITED STATES - Tags: POLITICS HEADSHOT) - RTX177WY
