A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Marjorie Cohn

The Bush administration is shocked, shocked, that the firing of a few U.S. attorneys has caused such a stir in Washington. After all, the Oval Office says, the President can choose whomever he wants to prosecute federal cases. But the Supreme Court declared in Berger v. United States that a prosecutor's job is to see that justice is done, not to politicize justice. The mass ouster of the top prosecutors had more to do with keeping a grip on power - by manipulating voting rights - than with doing justice. And like the Watergate scandal, the evidence points to a cover-up.

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,  

This is Bush doing what Bush does best ... getting his way. Sending our troops off to die for 15 more months for a war that is his war, his lie. If the US wants to stop the carnage ... clean out the White House first. Today, in the news, more deaths in the so-called US Green Zone in Iraq.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

The Bush Administration's strategy of appeasement with North Korea seems to have backfired. The U.S. released $25 million in frozen assets in hopes of getting North Korea to stop making radioactive material for nuclear bombs, but there has yet to be any response in advance of an agreed upon deadline.

Cindy Sheehan: Number 3291

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION

Out of war, nations acquire additional territory if they are victorious. They just take it. This newly acquired territory promptly is exploited by the few -- the self same few who wrung dollars out of blood in the war.

The nation is deeply divided along party lines over Bush's Iraq War policy. Republicans seem to largely support Bush and Cheney on the issue. Independents, third party supporters, and Democrats are overwhelmingly opposed.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

This is Repuglicanism at its worst, read it, and vomit! "Since President Bush came into office, the Justice Department has made 'voter fraud' prosecutions a high priority. Yet, not for lack of effort, they've barely been able to find any examples of it. The grand effort has boiled down to a program to send a few handfuls [of] folks -- mainly black -- to jail for what are in almost every case notional or unintentional voting infractions." Racism isn't limited to just Don Imus's egregious words and insults in this country!

I'm not a fan of Gwen Ifill on PBS
Because she seems to lean to the right
But she clearly is professional in her
TV appearances night after night.

Don Imus called her "a cleaning lady"
And to her defense I will gladly come
This falls under the heading of hateful
And sails many blocks beyond dumb.
