Of course, this will hardly get any televison news coverage and is -- in and of itself -- grounds for impeachment, but Alberto "Bush Consigliere" Gonzales testified today that Bush personally prevented a DOJ probe of the illegal Bushevik domestic wiretapping program (without court approval).

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT
The prescription drug "donut hole" was examined in a hearing yesterday by the Democratic Policy Committee (DPC). Medicare Part D plans - coupled with premiums and deductibles - provide coverage for 75% of prescription spending under $2,250, but then nothing until expenditures reach $5,100.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE
I agree with the editors at BuzzFlash ---a two state solution which guarantees security for both sides is the only answer to the oft repeated Middle-Eastern crises! I wonder if Bush’s hands-off approach proclaiming “Israel has the right to defend themselves, but use restraint,” is more a political safety net rhetoric response while hoping Israel will accomplish what Bush himself is politically hesitant to do--more preemption, more invasion, more war with Syria and Iran!!! Has the Bush administration calculated that it would be more acceptable to the American people and certainly a more politically correct action to come to the aid of Israel if and/or when Syria and/or Iran decided to enter the current conflict? Is Bush looking to spread his version of “freedom and democracy” throughout the Middle East? Is he in fact using Israel as a pawn to accomplish his ultimate goal of world domination?

There's an old joke I first heard years ago in Washington at a political fundraiser.
A senator is primping in the bathroom mirror and muses aloud to his wife, "I wonder how many great men there are in the world."
She replies, "One less than you think."
Each of the 100 seats in the United States Senate comes with elevator and franking privileges, a pass to the congressional gym and a customized suit woven from hubris and ego. The warp and woof vary from member to member. Some wear the suit more lightly than others.

Washington, DC - As Vice President Cheney again rolls out the Republican smear machine, Americans have made it clear that they are tired of the blustery rhetoric that is a hallmark of the inept and dangerous foreign policies of the Bush Administration. President Bush's mishandling of the War in Iraq and America's subsequent disengagement from a host of military and diplomatic confrontations around the world highlight the fact that his policies have made America less safe. And at home, the Bush White House and the "Do-Nothing" Republican Congress have not done enough to keep our borders and or ports secure.
A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL
As civilians on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian war perish, Bush has advanced from his rudderless, leaderless talk of a pig dinner in Germany to barnyard expletives at the G-8 conference.
Sadly, BuzzFlash is not making this up. This is how America is represented in foreign policy as the tinderbox ignites.
In case you missed it over the weekend, here is a BuzzFlash editorial that discusses our views on the current bloody battle between Israel, Hamas, and Hezbollah:
Welcome to the Repuglican scare the beejeezzus out of them tactics in order to get the people to support the PNAC plan to accomplish the goal of world domination! According to Newt Gingrich we are witnessing the beginning of World War III in the Middle East! The Bush administration and their minions are doing everything they can to accomplish their goal! Where are the statesmen, where is the sanity, where oh where is the leadership???
