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:

If you're not a follower of the "top conservatives on Twitter" (#tcot), you really missed out today. Here's how it started, before the ceremony even began:

SAD SAD day in America. #TGDN #tcot

Our favorite would-be president weighs in:

The Constitution is a mere annoyance for Obama! http://t.co/... #tcot
@THEHermanCain via TweetDeck

Here's a burning question:

Will MSM give any coverage of protesters in DC? Doh? What am I thinking, MSM is so enamored w/O that showing real discent is bad press #tcot

The reviews of the speech itself—Nazi? Marxist? Fascist?

500,000 people on Capitol Hill screaming FOR the dismantling of our economy and rights.Looks similar to a Hitler rally #TGDN #NRA #tcot
@shovelridr via web
Make no mistake... I don't give a f**k what color a MARXIST is ...  invoking founders words in his empty screed... #teaparty #tcot #ocra
@Obamapocalypse via TweetDeck
This speech is fascistic. Emphasizing his desire for government involvement shrouded in campaign slogans and catchphrases. #tcot #inaug2013
@yatishparmar023 via web

But the real capper, for it's sheer hypocrisy and idiocy:

That was just a political speech. Shameful. Missed an opportunity to bring nation together, @BarackObama. #inaug2013 #TGDN #tcot
@saramarietweets via HootSuite

More "highlights" from crazy-land below the fold.


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).

There was one passage in the speech that really got them going:

He's talking about addressing "the threat of climate change" #wearesoscrewed #tlot #tcot
@NatalieDuvalNY via Twitter for iPhone
Muthereffer...now he's talking about global warming? SMH...could I hate this guy any more? #Obama #inaug2013 #TGDN #tcot
@KimberlySez via Tweetbot for iOS

The really bizarre conspiracy theories:

Obama's 2nd inauguration is also 2nd time it's 'fallen' on the MLK Day The 1st was Clinton's 2nd inauguration - Coincidence? #lmao #tcot
@LifeOnTheRight via web
We think... RT @Gunnerguy1911: Look at the bright side - This is the beginning of the end of Obama's second term. #tcot
@zellster via TweetDeck
I have a sick feeling that this inauguration is just a hoax. #soundstage #spielberg #lucas #CGI #tcot
@timheidecker via Twitter for Mac
“@RoushBr: Muslim American inaugural event places minaret over White House http://t.co/... #tgdn #tcot #teaparty”

@DixieSportsman via Twitter for iPhone

And just the unfortunately typical.

C'mon God, just one lightening strike? PLEASE. #gop #tcot #teaparty #lnyhbt
@grannyfriedpies via web
Barack Hussein Obama was elected because of the color of his skin, and despite the content of his character. #tcot #p2
@ResistTyranny via TweetDeck
God, please wake me up from this terrible nightmare.I am seeing a Muslim communist destroy America. #RedNationRising #revolution2013 #tcot
@CzarZellem via Twitter for iPad

And, of course:
