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:

In a great day for America, for the first time in its history, a non-white man will be elected Speaker.

It is truly an exceptional story, because only in America could a non-white person be elected Speaker of the United States House of Representatives.


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).

It is fitting that this happens 4 years since the first woman was elected Speaker and 2 years after the inauguration of the first African-American President.

But sadly, there are already rumors swirling around John Boehner. One false rumor is that, as a Tan-American, he must have been born in Tanzania. This is just a slur, and when you think about it, makes no sense really.

Some conservatives accused Democrats of purposefully picking on his ethnicity by including a tax on tanning salons in the latest round of healthcare reform.

This is also incorrect because this just discourages people from trying to change their ethnicity to Tan and reap social benefits.

What this really means as that no matter if your name sounds like Hussein or Boner, no matter the color of your skin you can always succeed in America, as long as you can raise a shitton of cash from the wealthy.

Note: I could have waited till the actual inauguration of the Speaker, but by then someone else would have done this exact joke but come up with something more funny, and nobody ever reads my diaries anyway.
