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.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
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.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
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).
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.
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.
This is an inherently thin diary, but I'm on deadline and am distracted by the kids too much to compose anything decent or penetrating. Nevertheless something important happened on the teevee today, and Kossacks need to take note. Tucker Carlson was dismantled on his own show after attempting to call his own guests sexuality into question. Michael Rectenwald of a group called Citizens for Legitimate Government was the guest. I had never heard of the group before today. He gave an object lesson in how to dismantle a conservative toady without coming unhinged when they attempt to go below the belt.
Here is the video. It is jaw dropping. I know Tucker Carlson is low rated and a walking joke, but the story is important as an example of what it takes to fight the progressive fight on TV and win.
My brain is aflame with righteous ranting, but I have to go back to my paying gig. Please check out the vid. Peace out.
No time for a poll either. Limited ability to entertain comments. If someone else fleshes the story out, I'll be happy to delete.
