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:

I don't have tv, so, I've been waiting for a hours for this to post so I can watch the one person on tv that I wanted to see talk about this since Saturday.


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).

When it went to the audience I had chills from my head to my toes.  If you haven't already seen this you'll see what I'm saying when you watch.  The look on the face of Lt. Col. Victor Fehrenbach is literally priceless.  The look of still trying to reconcile the new reality after years of pain and struggle.  I wish I could give the Lt. Col. a hug that says 'you don't have to be afraid of those people ruining your life anymore'.  

After 2 years of majorities and the white house we finally got what I voted in hope for.  I always knew it would happen.  But I couldn't sleep the night before waiting until the morning to see it happen.  The moment it reached 51 votes for the bill I raised my hands in the air straight up to cheer.  And that's very not me to do that.  But this time I couldn't stop myself.  We still got it, folks.  We can still do pure true good.
