A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
By Dave Lindorff

I'm getting sick and tired of hearing Democrats afraid of impeachment claim that it can't be done because the Senate, where Democrats hold a precarious one-seat edge, would never vote to convict and remove, which would require 67 votes.

Corporate Media pundits and sellout Democratic personalities are denouncing a return to the Fairness Doctrine standards in broadcasting eliminated by the Reagan Administration. They are falling into a trap set by the Republican Right and the largest corporations in America. Essentially, they are letting Republican political spin set the agenda for "acceptable" political views.

When he announced the commutation of Scooter Libby's 30-month sentence, George W. Bush cited the ways Libby has and will suffer: damage to his reputation, the suffering of his wife and children, large fines, and the "long-lasting" consequences of being a convicted felon.

Subject: Sen. Domenici Latest GOP Stalwart To Break With White House on War

The Demos are going to keep screwing around with This Iraq mess and the repugs are going to steal the ball.

To blow that spin to smithereens
You don't need a big destroyer:
How can they hate Rich so much
When Scooter was his lawyer?

To help the administration make charges not stick
He secretly was leaking to lawyers for Tricky Dick.

But he has parlayed his role back then into our time
As a by-the-book rough guy who's tough on crime.

Norman Solomon: A Bloody Media Mirror

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Norman Solomon

Many of America's most prominent journalists want us to forget what they were saying and writing more than 4 years ago to boost the invasion of Iraq. Now, they tiptoe around their own roles in hyping the war and banishing dissent to the media margins.

Today I received an in-depth blog entry from Danny Schechter (The News Dissector), reporting from Durbin, South Africa where he's screening his film, "In Debt We Trust." This was the second blog entry Danny has sent from South Africa in a little over a week. The blog was typical Danny. Not a superficial account of the customs and terrain. Not a self-indulged travelogue on the effects of the environs on "me." You don't get that from Danny. He's not about sensory conjecture. He's about facts. He's a journalist. He doesn't write. He reports.

BuzzFlash,

Sad, but it was an easy prediction right after Katrina. People just had to look at Iraq and know what would happen to New Orleans by this treasonous and criminal Bush GOP government. It doesn't matter where the tragedies occur or even if they are caused directly or indirectly by this US government ... the Bush GOP couldn't care less about people ... their job is to ransack this government as well as Iraq.

The other day I came out of my short retirement due to yet another Bush flagrant abuse of power. We decided that we would walk from Atlanta to DC to gather a people's movement for humanity. The longer BushCo are in office, the less chance we have of recovering the heart and soul of our nation, saving our soldiers and the people of Iraq and Afghanistan, and saving the planet from corporate and individual waste and pollution. Impeachment, removal from office, and in a perfect world, incarceration for the criminals against humanity, are urgent and necessary steps that need to be taken today.
