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:

Anytime McCain speaks, you can win!

For every McCain lie that you expose via diary, I will donate a dollar on your behalf to the Obama campaign. To win, simply post a diary here exposing the newest McCain lie. If you're the first to expose the lie, I will donate a dollar on your behalf to Barack Obama's campaign.*

It's easy, and there are many, many chances to win! Here's an example of a winning diary:


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 night, at Rick Warren's forum, McCain cited a suicide bombing by al-queda that involved two mentally disabled women unwittingly used as bombers.

According McLiar:

My friends, we are facing a transcendent  challenge in the 21st century: radical islamic extremism.

Not too long ago in Baghdad, Al-Queda took two young women who were mentally disabled and put suicide vests on 'em, sent 'em into a market place, and by remote control, detonated those suicide vests. If that isn't evil, you have to tell me what is.

That is evil! And transcendent! But:
The chief Iraqi military spokesman in Baghdad, Brig. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi, said the female bombers had Down syndrome and that the explosives were detonated by remote control indicating they may not having been willing attackers in what could be a new method by suspected Sunni insurgents to subvert stepped up security measures.
And from the NYTimes:
The blasts, coming after a marked drop in violence in Baghdad after the infusion of American troops into the capital and a shift by Sunni tribes against the insurgency, left many people here critical of the authorities and pessimistic for the coming year as they fear withdrawals of American troops.

Officials said insurgents had shifted tactics, because increased checkpoints and roadblocks have made it harder to detonate the car bombs that killed much larger numbers of people in the past.

Sunni Insurgents? Didn't McCain, though, recently claim that those guys (with his surgetastic help) were now helping to fight Al-Queda off? Yet, in front of Rick Warren and G-d, he now reveals that Al-Queda and the Sunni insurgents are still in cahoots?

Where are those lightning bolts when you need them?

Ah, yes, the time-tested Al-Queda/Insurgent interchangeability smokescreen switcharoo!  Use them as synonyms often enough, and everyone will be confused--but you'll never be wrong. It's one of McCain's favorite lies, and just one of many ways you can win! Here's another example of a recent, winning diary by A Siegel:

McCain: Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire...

Good luck!

*Each lie can only be entered once; winners will be chosen on a first-exposed/first-wins basis. Winners are limited to one lie per day. Diaries that expose lies subsequently corrected by McCain's handler, Joe Leiberman, receive half-credit. This offer is limited by federal election laws to the first 2300 lies.
