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:

Fred Thompson's presidential campaign is barely keeping people awake. It's sinking in its own quicksand. So when you need to do something to get some attention, don't lay the blame where it belongs. Lay it on an easy mark.

Intro

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).

I love the irony here.
Fred Thompson's presidential campaign is barely keeping people awake. It's sinking in its own quicksand. So when you need to do something to get some attention, don't lay the blame where it belongs. Lay it on an easy mark.
This morning on "Fox News Sunday," Thompson suggested that Fox News is biased against his campaign.
Fox News ... biased?
"This has been a constant mantra of Fox, to tell you the truth," he told host Chris Wallace.
"...for you to highlight nothing but the negatives in terms of the polls and then put on your own guys who have been predicting for four months, really, that I couldn't do it, kind of skew things a little bit. There's a lot of other opinion out there."
Wallace denied that "Fox has been going after you" and asked him, "Do you know anybody who thinks you've run a great campaign, sir?"
"It's not for me to come here and try to convince you that somebody else thinks I've run a great campaign," Thompson retorted.
Nice deflection. Thompson had the chance to give a solid answer. He hasn't done it so far in his campaign. Why start now?
