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:

Gotta hand it to Keith Olberman. I wish I had a transcript or something, but at around 8:30, he did an amazing thing. In a moment of Stephen Colbert graphic clarity, he made a series of lists of Bush fabrication - and they showed up visually listed on the side.

First list - reasons why Bush gave for going into the Iraq war, from WMD to spreading freedom to they tried to kill my dad. Second list - how much it would cost, from nothing to various numbers that keep changing as we go. Third list (with unfortunately no graphic) - all those who now oppose the escalation, including republicans, democrats, iraquis, congress, voters, etc.

It was so powerful, quick, to the point, a mini-'special comment' mid show, right before Bush's speech, that when he then quickly turned to Howard Feinman for some analysis, all he could do was stammer a bit and say, 'wow' . . .

I couldn't agree more. Keep at it, Keith. The country badly needs a voice like yours.
