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:

I was watching Tweety this afternoon, and they had on a couple of guests for the middle segments, and one of the guests was Margaret Carlson. When the subject of Fred Thompson came up, all three were engaged in a drool fest that would have made a six month old kid envious.

Carlson gave Thompson a pass on whether he would actually run for president, then preceded to kiss the butt of Thompson, calling him smart, witty, articulate and the Republican dream of a presidential candidate.

Then, Matthews asked whether Thompson can beat Hillary Clinton in a heads up match-up, and without hesitation, Carlson said he could. Her reasons, he's smart and handsome.


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).

Now, either Carlson needs new glasses, or something, because if there is one thing Thompson is not, is handsome.

But this boot licking by Carlson made me sick. This guy hasn't even announced whether he's running or not, yet Carlson says he can beat Hillary.

I thought by the end of the segment, Carlson was going to ask Thompson to marry her by the way she was star struck. It made me want to hurl chunks. Fred Thompson would be a disaster as president, yet Carlson doesn't care about his obvious conservative views, but whether Thompson looks like Tom Cruise or not.

Margaret, do me a favor, get a sponge, and wipe the drool off your face. Just because the guy has made a few TV appearences, and made a few movies, he is not presidential material. I give you Ronald Reagan as proof. Fred Thompson would be just plain terrible for the job.
