I have long been a proponent of using the pole feature on Daily Kos to measure local sentiment on key issues facing the community. In fact, I have used the pole feature many times here to "gauge the temperature" of Daily Kos membership on a particular subject.

This time, I am using a pole for a very personal reason. It's all about my ass.

In the last 8 months due some quite serious medical issues and a heavy exercise regimen, I have lost about 15 pounds and I am now asking the community to pole my ass. Does it look better, or is it too scrawny now that I'm down to 174 pounds?

I know you can't actually see my ass, but you can imagine it. So please take a few minutes to internalize my pole deeply before choosing an answer that best fits how you feel about my ass and my pole.

Thank you for your participation. I will update this diary as people grab my pole and run with it.



My ass, your pole. What do you 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.
