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:

Yes, it's immature.  Yes, it's off-color.  And yes, someone here will probably want to "taze" us just for suggesting it, but... dammit, it makes the point.

If you've ever wanted to send Harry Reid a pair of balls, here's your chance:

"Sending Harry Reid a Pair of Balls"

This is a new Facebook page that we (Left Take) have put up.  For each fan we get, we are sending an actual pair of balls to Harry Reid.

So far, after less than a day -- that's 2,010 pairs of balls.  2,010 requests that 2010 become the year that Harry gets his groove back, and uses reconciliation, a gym sock filled with manure, or whatever means necessary to get a health care bill through the Senate.

Don't think of it as a slam on Harry, think of it as tough love.  The guy used to be an amateur boxer, and he grew up in poverty.  We have no doubt that he's got an inner fighter who is tough as hell.

And with these balls, we hope to help him find that fighter.

Pop by, check it out, and... help Harry get his mojo back.


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).

(By the way, this ad below us is not from us, but damn, we wish it were.  This is brilliant)
