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:

Received this e-mail today from Senator Elizabeth Warren (D. MA) and the Progressive Change Campaign Committee in support of Congressman Ed Markey (D. MA) who is running against businessman Gabriel Gomez (R. MA) in the 2013 special election to fill Secretary of State John kerry's (D. MA) Senate seat:
We’ve seen where the Republicans want to take our country, and it isn’t pretty. That’s why we need to elect progressive leaders -- people with courage, with heart, and with a real commitment to the common good.
I’m proud to endorse Ed Markey, my friend and the newly-elected Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate here in Massachusetts.

A new poll shows Ed with a narrow 4% lead over his Republican opponent. Powerful interests are already lining up to help Republicans win this seat, and we have less than 8 weeks until Election Day.

Ed Markey needs the strong support of PCCC members like you right now. Please donate $3 to give me a strong partner in the Senate:


I’ve worked with Ed, and I’ve seen him in action.

He is a fighter for the environment, for women, for seniors, for unions, and for working families.

He has joined with the PCCC promising to vote against any cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security benefits. He believes in cutting the deficit by making millionaires, billionaires, and corporations pay their fair share -- NOT targeting seniors and those who are most vulnerable.

Ed will fight by my side for real Wall Street accountability -- to end “Too Big to Fail” and “Too Big to Jail” once and for all.

We can’t take anything for granted in the June special election. Please donate $3 to give me a progressive partner in the Senate:


Together, PCCC members made 574,570 calls and donated more than $1.17 million to my campaign. Your grassroots activism is changing our democracy for the better.

Thanks for being a bold progressive.

-- Elizabeth Warren

The election is Tuesday, June 25th.  Please click here if you would like to donate:
