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:

On my internet travels in the last few days I cam across two info nuggets that warmed my evil liberal heart.  The first one fell into my lap while I reading Seneca Doane's brilliant exhumation of the Howard Kaloogian Baghdad pix affair NY-20 GOP donor is famous DKos-exposed photo faker!, the second concerns everybody's most beloved MN politco Norm Coleman.

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 often feel a need to take a ride on the Google while reading a diary in order to verify or expand a diary's content, so while reading the Kaloogian story, the google swept this little jewel into my lap:

ALIPAC Issues National Warning on Jim Gilchrist's Minuteman Project

ALERT!  Jim Gilchrist is Sending out Fraudulent Emails!
Jim Gilchrist, who was exiled from the national anti-illegal movement in late 2007 for fraud and abberent, destructive behavior, continues his antics and attacks on the leaders in this movement.  Yesterday he wrote an email and copied my header and footer to it and forwarded it out to his list to make it look like I had sent it to him.  Those statements are 100% his statements.  My attorney, Howard Kaloogian, is handling this latest case of Gilchrist fraud.  Stay away from Jim Gilchrist and his small rebel MMP group.  He and a couple of his henchmen are constantly stirring up trouble in the movement they got kicked out of!  Nothing but lies and hate coming out of their dying group.  Even the SPLC has written about their recent troubles.  Stay away from all MMP events.

Scrolling down on that webpage, you will find more heart-warming e-mail prose from the pen of MrJeff Schwilk, Founder, www.SanDiegoMinutemen.com.San Diego County's “ONLY” Immigration Watchdog! against his nemesis, Mr Gilchrist.

Now on to Mr Coleman:  Here is a delectably written little piece on this gentleman and his fine buddies on Gawker:More Bad News For Norm Coleman

I did not do a thorough search to see if there are diaries out about this and will gladly delete if I am being redundant, but what I really wanted to know is this:  Do you have little enjoyable snippets to share too that you deemed too frivolous and so decided to withhold?
