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:


If you wish to see my video selections for tonight, I suggest you visit The Stars Hollow Gazette or DocuDharma.


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).

Guests for the rest of the week-

The Daily Show

* Tuesday 4/29: William Cohan
* Wednesday 4/30: Martin Gilens, Benjamin Page
* Thursday 5/1: David Spade

The Colbert Report

* Tuesday 4/29: Robert Rodriguez
* Wednesday 4/30: Audra McDonald
* Thursday 5/1: Saul Williams

Well, to my great disappointment, Mookie only got his 6 minutes.

Tonight's guests start with William D. Cohan who isn't the one you think.  Sebastian begs the question, "Why won't institutional Demorcrats nominate someone who actually is, you know, a Democrat to Secretary of Defense?  Someone like General Wesley Clark, Supreme Allied Commander Europe of NATO, valedictorian of his class at West Point, Rhodes Scholar?

Not that I always agree with his positions mind you, but there is no denying the man is well qualified.

Why hang on to a W toady like Robert Gates?

Anyway, Bill David is not actually a journalist, don't let his degrees fool you.  He's a Bankster who writes.

Prior to becoming a journalist, he worked on Wall Street for seventeen years. He spent six years at Lazard Frères in New York, then Merrill Lynch & Co., and later became a managing director at JP Morgan Chase. He also worked for two years at GE Capital.
He'll be on to whore his new book The Price of Silence, about the lacrosse case at Duke, where he got his undergraduate degree.  No conflict of interest there, no siree.

Robert Rodriguez is a film director from Texas.  He directed The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl which isn't as terrible as you might think and Spy Kids which is exactly that bad.

He'll want to talk about Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
