We have so many insightful and powerful diaries written here at Daily Kos. Our diaries inform, inflame, impassion, and even entertain. We Kossacks have strong voices and an even stronger will to be the change we wish to see in this country.
One of the richest, and perhaps most under-appreciated, areas of thought come in the form of comments attached to these diaries.
Here at Top Comments we strive to recognize and promote the talent of this community by highlighting outstanding comments found throughout the day by the diarist, and through nominations at made at topcomments at gmail dot com by your fellow Kossacks.
These nominations are subjective, and certainly not complete (as no one can read the complete site on a daily basis!). But hopefully they will serve to shine a light where deserved, and to give the reader a good starting point in finding conversation on the site.
Please come in and make yourself at home! Join us beneath the fold...
Again, what I've done is collect little snippets of comments or diaries that I felt would make funny signature lines. In fact, I now have people emailing me comments for these diaries. So if you come across a good one, and you are so inclined, shoot me an email. All of these have cracked me up for one reason or another:

Maybe it's because I'm drunk but this entire diary makes no sense to me whatsoever.
