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:

Received this e-mail form my current U.S. Senator, Barbara Boxer (D. CA), in support of Alison Lundergan Grimes (D. KY), Michelle Nunn (D. GA) and Natalie Tennant's (D. WV) U.S. Senate campaigns:
Can you imagine a day when Mitch McConnell is no longer the GOP's guardian of gridlock in the Senate, blocking bill after bill to help hardworking families -- from ensuring equal pay for equal work to lowering student loan rates and raising the minimum wage?

I can.


That’s because we have a fantastic candidate in Kentucky -- Alison Lundergan Grimes -- who despite all the special interest money being spent to attack her, is still neck and neck in the polls. Alison has a tremendous chance to win a crucial Senate seat and send Mitch McConnell packing this November.

Can you imagine a day when Georgia turns blue once more -- and is represented in the Senate by a Democratic woman for the first time since 1922?

I can.

That’s the day we elect Michelle Nunn to the U.S. Senate, a truly inspiring leader who has dedicated her life to empowering communities in Georgia and across the country.

And can you imagine a day when West Virginia sends its first-ever female senator to Washington?

I can.

That’s what we’ll get by electing Natalie Tennant, a trailblazing Secretary of State in West Virginia, and a fantastic candidate to replace my colleague Jay Rockefeller.

The fact is, we have to do more than just imagine these victories -- we have to make them happen!

And that’s why I’m asking you to contribute $50, $75, or more to Alison Lundergan Grimes, Michelle Nunn, and Natalie Tennant right now.


After all, our right-wing opponents and their deep-pocketed allies know that the road to the Senate majority runs through Kentucky, Georgia, and West Virginia, and that’s why they are going to spend millions of dollars attacking Alison, Michelle, and Natalie.

These three strong women need the resources to fight back -- and that is where we come in. Can I count on you?

We can’t let the special interests defeat Alison, Michelle, and Natalie, and win back the Senate majority in the process.

Imagine what these three big Democratic victories would look like -- and then contribute $50, $75, or more to make them happen.


Thank you so much for your support.

In Friendship,

Barbara Boxer
U.S. Senator
