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:

Alright, lemme get this straight....public option is potentially not an option since a hostile minority of nut cases have been showing up to town hall meetings shouting, not speaking in non sequiturs about hilter, socialist, fascist, communist takeovers?

So the same folks who don't think Obama was born in America are the same folks you're listening to about the public option?


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).

So when fringe, crackpot conspiracy  theorist Glenn Beck orders his watchers/listeners to town halls, (who deems Barack Obama a deep seeded racist, and is losing advertisers at astounding speeds) says jump, you say how high?

So what dictates the future of our health care isn't logic, reason and thoughtful debate, it's whoever is the most threatening, hostile and makes the most obnoxious outbursts?

So what matters isn't the fact that an overwhelming majority of Americans want a public option, it isn't what all the people who worked so tirelessly to get you elected think, it's what a batshit minority of birthers, deathers, anti government types who carry guns to rallies, spray paint swastikas on congressional offices, rip up posters of Rosa Parks think of the public option that really matters here?


Elected Dems, please find your backbones, your brains, get back to being adults & fighting for public option.
I can't believe we even have to have this conversation!!!
