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:

Long time no see Daily Kos... I've had my nose to the grindstone the last few weeks and but something has come to my attention that just SCREAMED for some pootie support

If you haven't already gotten to know Progressive Ilya Sheyman even though the primary is Tuesday it's not too late to help!  The PCCC recently launched IL10Polling.com which shows that not only is this race within reach...it's 100% winnable.

Think about it folks..a REAL progressive coming to DC to do OUR work or a corporate stool who takes the word Progressive in vain when he tried to pretend he is one of us.

So those of you who were around in 2010 know how this works but for those who don't... this is a Pootie-thon for Ilya.  Here's how it works:
I'm gonna start this diary off with 10 Pooties (ok maybe a bird too) and I'm gonna say it right here...for every pootie YOU post in the comments I'll donate a dime to the Sheyman campaign.  It may sound like a small pledge, but y'all burned for $200 once and I'm not part of the 1%!  I would also like to see many of you match or beat my pledge!
He's putting every penny raised into bringing on more boots on the ground so he can win this the right way... face to face with the voters -so donate if you can and if not, post a few pooties :)


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).
