The Vice President’s chief of staff isn’t political?
Who is she trying to snooker?
That’s like saying a woman who gets paid for sex
Shouldn’t be called a hooker.

THE BATTLE TO SAVE IRAQ'S CHILDREN

The desperate plight of children who are dying in Iraqi hospitals for the lack of simple equipment that in some cases can cost as little as 95p is revealed today in a letter signed by nearly 100 eminent doctors. They are backed by a group of international lawyers, who say the conditions in hospitals revealed in their letter amount to a breach of the Geneva conventions that require Britain and the US as occupying forces to protect human life.

Subject: Sudden about-face by the Busheviks regarding court oversight of big brother spying

The reason that the cabal has made a sudden about-face regarding court oversight of governmental spying is very simple. In a word, Libby.

There are people within the cabal who see what is happening to Libby for committing perjury, and they're scared. They've let it be known within the secret circle that they will not be put in the same position. They'll talk before going to jail for perjury.

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

I'm sorry, maybe it sounds unfair, but what will it take to get Congress off their duffs and get brutally tough with this criminal Bush Regime, I wonder. People are anxious after six years of brutality by this treasonous Bush administration.

Failure is not an option. It's standard! On every policy we make! Name a policy, and it's got failure! Guaranteed! Or your government back!

War in Iraq?

Failure, built in from day one! Go to war based on lies, go to war in a way that's technically a war crime, that's got failure, built in! To make certain that it had failure, we went in without enough people do to the job! And without a plan!

Bill Moyers: Life on the Plantation

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Bill Moyers

Remarks delivered by Bill Moyers at the 2007 "Conference on Media Reform" in Memphis, Tennessee, Friday, January 12. (Scroll down for audio link.)

It has long been said (ostensibly by Benjamin Franklin, but we can't be sure) that "democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote."

My fellow lambs:

It's good to be in Memphis and find you well-armed with passion for democracy, readiness for action, and courage for the next round in the fight for a free and independent press.

In at least one area, President Bush is on the run.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

If the Repuglican Party really wants to survive it's imperative for some statesmen, if there are any left in Washington D.C., to step up to the plate and make that "it's time to resign" trip to the White House. If America is to survive, it's time for us all to say enough already! It's time for wiser, saner, men and women to see to it that the madness stops right here, right now! And as far as "pardons" go, forget about it! How do you pardon someone who is responsible for the preemptive, unnecessary deaths of over 600,000 innocent people!

My son was a high school cross-country runner (and a pretty good one). On the course that his team ran most frequently, at about the halfway mark, was the beginning of a fairly steep hill. At the meets, I would stand at that point and when my boy came along, I would yell "focus, focus."

You have to admit that
This is kinda sneaky
What’s next: some bling
And a dashiki?
