A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

After all the talk about the fired U.S. attorneys, we reported recently on one prosecutor allowed to stay who botched the biggest tax fraud case in American history. Last week, a federal appeals court handed down a "total, humiliating embarrassment" to another prosecutor by vacating a case evidently brought purely for political reasons (but without any evidence).

Things undone:

1. The plan to protect the Gulf Coast.
Does anyone think Katrina was the last hurricane that will hit the Gulf Coast? Most climatologists predict hurricanes will get bigger and stronger.

The myth that Karl Rove is a genius is just plain misguided and downright erroneous! It doesn't take genius to make a charlatan!

Being the "front runner" is a mixed blessing, as Rudy Giuliani is learning the hard way. In one mildly rough week, Giuliani's standing with Republican voters dropped some 8-10 points - pretty dismal when you consider that his competition is the most low-grade field of presidential aspirants ever assembled. While Democrats ponder their preferences among at least four highly qualified and formidable potential candidates, listless Republicans are seriously questioning whether their crumbling vestige of a political party can come up with anyone who does not belong in a padded cell.

Monica Goodling resigned last Friday
Because the top aides for the POTUS
Have always felt this is the best day to
Do things they hope no one will notice.

A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL

Last night we saw the gripping Academy Award winning best foreign film, "The Lives of Others." It’s an absorbingly bleak movie about how individuals in East Germany were under a 100,000 person police-state apparatus known as the Stasi.

I am in a stupor.

Can people really be so ignorant and manipulated?

I am standing on a busy intersection holding a sign that proclaims I am a "military family who speaks out." There is an air show going on at the air force base down the street.
