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:

Shady corporate groups are now running TV ads in New Hampshire attacking Ann McLane Kuster because she's on the verge of winning this key NH-2 House seat. Kuster, you'll recall, defeated crushed Joe Lieberman's presidential campaign co-chair Katrina Swett in last month's big primary after being supported by the PCCC, DFA, MoveOn, and other progressive groups.

UPDATE: Thanks to those who "recommended" this diary -- please keep em coming so others can see and help fight 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).

Ironically, "Americans for Prosperity" is attacking Kuster for supporting the public health insurance option! Their ad says Kuster thinks health care reform "doesn't go far enough" -- which is exactly what a new AP poll finds that Americans think by 2-to-1.

Meanwhile, Ann's Republican opponent, Charlie Bass, is attacking her for being a "bold progressive" and says the Tea Party's agenda is "exactly the same as mine."

When a candidate campaigns as a bold progressive and is attacked by corporations for supporting the public option, we need to strike back!
Can you donate $4 to Ann's campaign here?

Or, tonight, help the PCCC and DFA make thousands of emergency calls for Ann. We're calling solid NH Democrats who were mailed absentee ballot forms -- asking them to fill them out and VOTE EARLY! Click here to make calls (from your home) for Ann Kuster tonight (Monday) at 6pm Eastern.

The right would LOVE to defeat Kuster, especially after progressives helped her win a big primary. This is a moment for all of us to help her fight back -- either by chipping in some money or some time.

Note: You can also sign up to do weekly shifts on the PCCC/DFA phone bank, calling target voters in key districts and states with progressives on the ballot -- folks like Grayson, Feingold, and others. Sign up here.
