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:

What do all three subjects have in common?  A disgusted  ATF agent who infiltrated the Hell’s Angels and is subsequently hung out to dry by his bureau (does that surprise anybody) was Diane’s guest yesterday.  

I e-mailed Ms. Rehm immediately after the show.  There's the connection. Really!   You don’t think so? I’ll show you....


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).

O.K. here's the deal. I’m disgusted (too) with the lack of response I get to 100’s of e-mails I send, let’s just say- all over the country concerning my vendetta against what I call the “wicked” Mexican government. Her guest is disgusted in his own right, I’m disgusted in mine.  Diane was a little perplexed by her guest yesterday.  She’s usually sharper than that.  I knew just where the guy was coming from.  A three way connection like I promised?  Close, but no cigar yet.

I lay  out my own misery in many diaries right in this blog. This other gentleman wrote a book. He's very fortunate that way.  When I came back from my first of four appalling trips to Mexico, starting in 07, when I visited my friend in his rural home town and saw the near economic paralysis stemming from all the corruption down there, I embarked on a demonic mission, a man possessed- immediately upon returning home and..... Please remember: first of four trips..... I then bicycled .....up and down 6th Ave. in Manhattan  (parked the car for free in Brooklyn at the secret location), hitting all the news organizations, hoping to tell them the story, as I saw it, of the Mexican people- pitifully- being financially raped by their nearly (delete the word nearly) criminal government.  Seen through the eyes of an American who developed an extremely close friendship with an illegal, returned home with him to an area where you'll never see a foreigner... and that's not a story? I thought it was an unusual angle (there's many an angle to this adventure, trust me).   I was politely told by the news organizations, usually a receptionist,, once by the pretty Leis Weil in the lobby (FOX fame) to e-mail them instead.   The rest is (e-mail) history.  

Oh and wish me luck, after the three business day wait to see if there are any challenges to any of us  Independents, 10 in all,  I’m now securely on the ballot this fall and looking forward to being New Jersey’s next Governor.  Don't laugh, it's theoretically possible.

You’re one of the best in the business but you sounded a little naïve in the 2nd hour of your show.  Who could blame you though?  Like the ATF agent, you’d have to be in the Club- I’ll christen right now as the “Do I Have to Blow My Brains Out To Get Any Attention Club” for you to understand.  
If nobody challenges my signature petitions then I will be officially a candidate, as of 4 PM, for Governor of New Jersey.  The ATF agent would understand completely (my frustration; if he's still sitting there.)   Diane, the diary below was posted in the Daily Kos.  I’m  “mightyquinntheeskimo”   and I’ve also been a caller to your show several times.

Do I Have to Blow My Brains Out?

(No I’ll vent by posting another diary in the Daily Kos about friggin Mexico- reverting back to my wacky writing style..... and with so many You-Tube links nobody will read it. A nascent grass roots campaign for Governor  of NJ focusing on single payer health care  will be derailed- voters will be left to wonder what might have been. Music and Mexico, the two M's F'd my great strategy to win Jersey voter's hearts and minds. Do you like great music? Check the links, I’m your candidate.
We interrupt this program to bring you this news alert........
Increasingly waggish Candidate for Governor of New Jersey, The Mighty Quinn, e-mails House Speaker Pelosi, the White House, the Washington Post- and others, and threatens to blow his brains out. Their response: Thank you for contacting my office, thank you for contacting the White House, and thank you for contacting the Washington Post.   then the diary continues under the fold as they say.....
