We all have mourned the passing last week of Molly Ivins. As her friend Bill Moyers wrote, she has been "ushered into the Council of Ink-Stained Immortals, where the only religion is truth." She left us with many truthful words, including these from her last column when she implored us to resist the "surge" in Iraq: "We are the people who run this country. We are the deciders."

Cindy Sheehan: The Destroyer and His Helpers

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

When I first started on my long, arduous and relentless journey towards peace shortly after my son, Casey, was killed in Iraq, I met with many Democratic House Members and two Republicans, Walter Jones (R-NC) and Ron Paul (R-TX). I received sympathy and sometimes tea from each elected official, but the consensus was that the anti-war group was in the minority in the Democratic Party and but the barest of minorities in the Republican Party, so nothing could be accomplished in stopping Bloody George the Destroyer's war of terror.

Last night's Super Bowl was a Roman Vomitorium of odious spew. This and the insipid made only palatable by the thought of Mike Ditka in a dark bar drinking whiskey shots, chased with the salty discharge humans call tears.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

WASHINGTON, D.C. — After Republicans voted to block debate last night, Senator Bernie Sanders delivered this speech on the floor of the Senate.

Mr. President:

Is there a government contract with pork?
They’d like to put a bid on it.
Is there a war most of the nation opposes?
They’d like to put a lid on it.

 

A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL

It used to be the Race Card; now it’s the Fear Card.

That’s the way it is on Capitol Hill, anyway, with basically the same areas of the country that had senators who played the Race Card, now playing the Fear Card. (Except for Lieberman, but he’s the odd man out.)
