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.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
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.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
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).
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.
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.
If they ever had any credibility in the first place, that is.
Seriously. I never want to hear another word out of these fucking hypocrites again.
But, but, but... It's just one congressional district. SC-01 doesn't represent the views of the Republican Party.
The fuck it doesn't. I hereby resolve to do my small part in shoving the results of this election down the collective throat of the GOP on every future instance in which they attempt to either smear Democrats for even the slightest of transgressions, or to push their laws relating to everything they see as "tradional," "proper," or the way "God intended."
Fucking hypocrites just couldn't find it within themselves to actually practice what they think they preach, and vote for a Democrat. You know, one that might actually do something for their district other than engage in taxpayer-funded spouse-cheating. One that could've put the country one person closer to breaking out of the national clusterfuck we've been submerged in since 2010.
God has forgiven you, Mark Sanford, and that's good enough for the residents of SC-01.
National embarrassment? We gotz it.
For Republicans, "Forever," as used in the title of the diary, will conclude as of 9:00am tomorrow morning, I know.
If Vitter can get reelected, so can Mark Sanford. If Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer can be run out of office over these types of scandals, so can the next Democrat that messes around.
Tomorrow it'll be business as usual, because IOKIYAR, and God forgives Republicans, but not Democrats, apparently.
That doesn't mean people need to remain silent about it in the future. As I said above, I won't hesitate to remind people in whatever way I can. Probably won't change much, but it can't hurt to try.
As do most people, I detest hypocritical behavior. When I catch myself engaging in it, I verbally abuse myself relentlessly. I'll be sure to dish some of that out to the "holier-than-thou" Republicans who mysteriously forget this election ever happened next time a Democrat screws up.
