by Tony Peyser

That worldwide, anti-Jewish conference
Was something he was long engineering
But that Holocaust denier event didn't happen
Is the rumor that we have been hearing.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Note: Barbara is taking a holiday break with her family until January 3rd. She prepared the following for you on Friday.

Finally an optimistic outlook for Senator Tim Johnson. If indeed, accumulated blood can be evacuated before the pressure damages the brain, then chances for recovery are good!!! The fact that he was in surgery within hours after the first symptoms is a good sign. Our hearts go out to him and his family during this a most difficult time!!

Senate Republican Leader Visits Tim Johnson In His Hospital Room

by Tony Peyser

Dr. Frist got rather pissed
Whirling around as someone said,
"I'm just an intern but doesn't

While Republican vultures hover shamelessly over the hospital where Sen. Tim Johnson, the South Dakota Democrat remains in critical condition following emergency brain surgery, progressives are in a lather worrying that if Johnson doesn't recover, or if he dies, South Dakota's Republican governor would appoint a Republican to finish out his term, handing control of the U.S. Senate back to the just ousted Republican Party.

by Tony Peyser

It seems tacky to do God's work
By indulging in behavior
Where converts are strong-armed to shout,
"YES, SIR! JESUS IS MY SAVIOR!"

As these words are written it appears that Senator Johnson is doing well with the real prospect of a full recovery. As we hope and pray for the best, it is time to take stock of the potential for the next two years becoming an ongoing constitutional crisis in the U.S. Senate.

Washington, DC - While President Bush continues to distance himself from the important recommendations of the Baker-Hamilton Commission, both the American people and our military commanders are supporting the work of the bipartisan group. A recent Newsweek poll found that Americans back the study group's "recommendations by a two-to-one margin," and that sixty-two percent of Americans "want the Bush administration to set a timetable for withdrawal."
