I'm proud to announce the April 2010 we're-all-going-to-chew-each-other-up-if-this-doesn't-stop Daily Kos PIE CONTEST!

For a change, we don't throw them, fun as that may be.

No, we bake them. Now I know that whatever our various flavors of progressive political belief system, whatever our levels of passionate dedication to our President, and whatever our respective, um, respect for our fellow progressives, one thing is pretty much true:

We do like our pie. So...

In honor of all our real trolls, concern trolls, fake trolls, and--most of all--our own trollish moments during our personal quests for truth, justice, and the American way, I challenge you all to a pie baking contest.

  1. You post the best pie (or other) baking recipe. And maybe the second best, 'cause I might like that one better. More butter and chocolate, you know.
  1. You read everyone else's recipes...and maybe bake one.
  1. You rate up the recipes you like. (And I don't see why you should rate anyone's down. I mean, just because you once got stoned and ate an entire pecan pie and got sick doesn't mean you should rate down that lovely pecan pie recipe, right?)
  1. Gain an appreciation for the diversity and uniqueness of all of our dear DK citizens. We're different, we tend to be passionate, and we sometimes express our passion by losing ourselves and yelling at each other. Dude, relax. It's all pie. If you don't like the recipe, just move on to the next one.

The winner will be by mojo. You like the recipe, you rate it up.

I have a feeling this will be the most yummy pie fight ever!

Thanks for all these years of progressive intellectual stimulation. You folks sometimes piss me off, but most of the time, you make me think.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
