A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Harvey Wasserman & Bob Fitrakis

It is time to think about the "unthinkable." The Bush Administration has both the inclination and the power to cancel the 2008 election. The GOP strategy for another electoral theft in 2008 has taken clear shape, though we must assume there is much more we don't know.

HOUSE DEMOCRATS BRING BACK 2006 REFORM PACKAGE

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Revealing if not enlightening, one small paragraph in a bunch of mumbo jumbo, that certainly did not justify the Washington Post’s coverage of “cleavage”! “Stories about the physical appearance of candidates, from Al Gore's earth-tones wardrobe to John Edwards's $400 haircut to a bathing-suit shot of Barack Obama in a People spread on "Beach Babes," have long been an entertaining sideshow.” The “entertaining sideshows” seem to involve Democratic candidates more often than not!

Not only are we not too wild about our President, we like our Congress even less.

There is presently a serious possibility that America will come under martial law before the 2008 presidential election and be irretrievably turned into a totalitarian state. If this happens there won't even be a free election in 2008. We can and should eliminate this ominous threat to national security by impeaching Bush and Cheney now. But the man in charge, John Conyers, is afraid of what Fox News might say about him.

Clinton endured an endless attack
But were blow jobs worse than the blown job
That George W. has done in Iraq?
