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:

So right after our new favorite regular Fox News contributor Glenn Greenwald got done talking about how awesome Megyn "Santa-Is-Obviously-White" Kelly is, he decided to attack Democrats for attacking Rand Paul's flip flop on aid to Israel.

His tweet can be found here:

The direct quote:

"Here, @TheDemocrats seem to be attacking Rand Paul for the crime of once advocating cuts in aid to Israel"

Um, no, they are not attacking his former position. For once, many Dems actually want to start having a debate about whether we should be funding weapons used to kill children. But if Greenwald did ANY research at all, he would realize that Democrats are attacking the fact that Rand Paul is now denying that he ever held such a position. It's almost as if doing simple research is boring and tedious to Greenwald, which is not surprising given how sloppy much of his Snowden reporting was and how much he prefers to criticize Democrats over Republicans. He could be attacking the hundreds of elected Republicans who attack any mention of cutting aid to Israel as "anti semitism." But instead, he attacks Democrats for doing something they never did.

Greenwald's favorite line that "Democrats liked me more before Obama was sworn in" is certainly true. But that was before he turned into a tired old hack constantly auditioning for a spot in the Fox News lineup. He is no different than Ron Fournier screaming that because both parties hate him, he must be right.

And anyway, since we are talking about people holding positions that they later deny they ever held in the first place, how about a friendly reminder that Greenwald supported the Iraq war and later denied it.
