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:

Everybody's favorite scary Catholic douchebag John Bambenek is back, this time with a column in the local campus rag, The Daily Illini about... gasp drinking at college!

Something is bizarrely tragic and sad for a 31-year old who can only get his trash published in college newspapers. I'm not sure that 30-somethings who spend all day hanging out with 19-year olds playing "journalist" has any standing to criticize, but that doesn't stop him anyway.  That's why he can't even get elected to the local school board, everyone knows he's a nut... and this latest column doesn't disappoint.


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).

Last year they said they issued 176 tickets for drinking. Congratulations! Have a cookie. More people got the clap last Unofficial than got a drinking ticket.
As usual, right-wing Christian nutjobs can't go more than 15 seconds without their sexual hangups and repressions coming out. Oh no! Sex is evil! This isn't the first time that Bambenek goes on bizarre rants about sexually transmitted infections, the only thing missing is blaming feminists (like he did in another column titled You are more than your vagina).

The real problem Bambenek has is that people are using their freedom to have a good time. It's college, you are SUPPOSED to have some fun. And because these kids have fun he suggest it's time to take away their right to vote:

Perhaps it's time to have a serious discussion about repealing the 26th Amendment.
The University of Illinois is a pretty progressive place, its a shame that people like Bambenek get a platform to spew intolerance and hate. At least it lets us see what these crazed Republican extremists really think.
