BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

What's a little "collateral damage" when weighed against the desire to preemptively invade a sovereign nation? Obviously the lives of CIA operatives were not a consideration for Dick Cheney and "Scooter" Libby when they persisted in the business of outing Valerie Plame and destroying Joe Wilson! Most of America is familiar with the phrase, "Ignorance of the law does not excuse." And I would add, "memory lapses" are not a defense!

Summaries are excerpted from the source articles; the featured article follows the summary section.  A recommended "site of the day" will also appear occasionally following the summaries. 

Maybe switch to Sanka, Dick,
The basic question here that begs
Has less to do with stomachs
Than troops missing arms and legs.

VERSE-CASE SCENARIO

Instead of worrying if White House tempers
May become inflamed
They should be thinking of our troops at whom
IEDs are now aimed.

VERSE-CASE SCENARIO

Speaker Nancy Pelosi may have taken impeachment "off the table," but House Judiciary Chair John Conyers (D-MI) is about to put it back on the menu.

Conyers may have been blocked by a timid Pelosi from initiating impeachment hearings immediately into President Bush's crimes against the Constitution, but he's taken the first step anyway, with the anouncement of plans to hold hearings into what is surely the President's gravest abuse of power.

Frameshop: [Cheney] as [A Rabid Animal]

Written by

JEFFREY FELDMAN'S FRAMESHOP

If you watch only one news video today, make it Wolf Blitzer's recent interview with Vice President Dick Cheney (transcript). I am not a huge fan of Blitzer, but the interview yesterday was incredibly revealing. In it we see Dick Cheney coming unglued. The mask is off Vice President as he expresses with no uncertain terms his contempt and disdain for journalists, the democratic process, the American people, and anything vaguely resembling the truth.

I’ve lost my keys, watch and wallet
And every manner of whatchamacallit.
Does it bother me? I just try not to let it.
But if I outed a spy, I wouldn’t forget it.

That’s a pro-family values belief
That all of us should abide by for life
Oh, by the way, Mr. Cheney, why
Didn’t this apply to Joe Wilson’s wife?

Peter Michaelson: Hating Bush Only Hurts Us

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION

It's appropriate to dislike George W. Bush. It's reasonable to find him pathetic. We're justified in being disgusted with him. But it only hurts us if we hate him.
