A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Michael Winship

Carnegie Hall is one of the wonders of Manhattan. With its famous acoustics and elegant design, the curve of its balcony tiers like the lines of a Steinway grand or, say, Sophia Loren in her prime, it's a glorious place to hear great music.

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION

The most alarming thing I learned about American politics in the past decade is that one powerful group of political leaders is dedicated to keeping American citizens from voting. This group is the leadership of the modern Republican Party. This fact is carefully hidden from the average Republican voter who clearly does not support this approach to politics.

Democrats in Congress today should send a message loud, clear and powerful that this election will be conducted with integrity and fairness, and that if either House of Congress becomes Democratic there will be a full subpoena powered investigation of any form of election abuse this November.

Open letter from Burt Hall to Democratic Party:

As you know, Republicans believe they can hold onto Congress with aggressive local campaigns and a national effort on terrorism and security to raise fears about Democratic control.

Because I am a middle-aged woman, complete with grey hair, wrinkles, sagging breasts and stretch marks, on October 18, I will celebrate Love Your Body Day, an event sponsored by the NOW Foundation. The celebration, now in its ninth year, is designed to draw attention to the horrendous damage to self-esteem that is experienced by women as a result of the purposeful efforts of "Hollywood and the fashion, cosmetics and diet industries to make each of us believe that our bodies are unacceptable and need constant improvement."

For most of the last four decades, liberals have been in retreat.

Since the election of Richard Nixon in 1968, Republicans have controlled the White House 70 percent of the time and Republican presidents have made 86 percent of the U.S. Supreme Court appointments. In many quarters, the word "liberal" has become a pejorative. Part of the problem is that liberals have failed to define themselves and to state clearly what they believe. As a liberal, I find that appalling.

It's easy to delight in the Hastert/Foley meltdown, and how it's hit a national nerve. Building on all the administration's abuses, failures, and lies, the cover up of this out-of-control congressman may just give America the inadvertent gift of a chance to finally change course.
