My wife, over coffee, admitted finding it odd
That cheating Sen. Vitter said he was forgiven by God

But, Kathy noted, without being the least bit vague,
Why couldn't that option have been used by Sen. Craig?

by Micah Tillman

A recent search of the headlines revealed that talk, not action, has become news to the mainstream media. "Former NJ Governor's Wife Recalls Ordeal." "In Book, Bush Peeks Ahead to His Legacy." "As 9/11 Draws Near, a Debate Rises: How Much Tribute Is Enough?" "In Georgia, Voices of Reassurance." "2nd Retired British General Slams US."

The only thing that separates this "news" from high school gossip is the fact that talk by nationally significant people might predict nationally significant action. But is news now about speculation, not fact? How can something that hasn't happened be news? It isn't even new yet.

Does it really (at this incredibly late date)
Still in any genuine way remain at all wise
To have to pass along the hooey that his
Trip to this war torn country is a "surprise?"

Washington, DC - With Karl Rove packing up his desk for his last day today and the Department of Justice's Inspector General investigating if Alberto Gonzales misled Congress, it's just another reminder that George Bush put the Republican Party's interests ahead of the interests of the American people. Undoubtedly, business as usual will continue at the White House, even with the departure of these "loyal Bushies."

by Ray McGovern

Why do I feel like the proverbial skunk at a Labor Day picnic? Sorry; but I thought you might want to know that this time next year, there will probably be more skunks than we can handle. I fear our country is likely to be at war with Iran -- and with the thousands of real terrorists Iran can field around the globe.


BuzzFlash Note: Happy Labor Day! Barbara's Buzz returns Tuesday.

Thanks to young men like Iraqi veteran Knappenberger, Americans are finding out an “all voluntary military” is a lie! Bush’s policies “… have, in effect, created conscripted service in an ostensibly voluntary military, he said. ‘How do you tell a 17-year-old or a 55-year-old grandpa that [he's] part of a voluntary military and yet he's being involuntarily extended’?" The Repuglicans are finding out it takes more than propaganda to make it true!
