A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Dave Zirin

[Note to Reader: Over the last decade, Jason Whitlock has been one of the most prominent African American sports columnists in the United States. He writes for the Kansas City Star and AOL Sports. For reasons unclear, he often refers to himself as "Big Sexy."]

Out of the '08 presidential race
This could give Mitt a shove
But may increase DVD sales for
The first season of "Big Love."

 

I wonder if Connecticut voters will open their eyes
And realize he’s good for the Jews but not the GIs.

 

VERSE-CASE SCENARIO


BUSH EXTENDED FAMILY PHOTO taken January 20, 2005

Yet, not one -- not one -- of any of Bush's children or his nieces and nephews have volunteered for service in any branch of the military or volunteered to serve in any capacity in Iraq. Not one of them has felt the cause was noble enough to put his or her life on the line.

Olympia, WA-- If the state of Washington passes a joint legislative resolution next month calling on the U.S. House of Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Bush and Vice President Cheney, it will be because the 900 people who crammed into this capital city's Center for the Performing Arts last Tuesday evening, and countless others across the state, pushed them into it.

Shirley Smith: It's All About Respect

BuzzFlash,  

Without feelings of respect, what is there to distinguish men from beasts? -- Confucius, Analects, sixth century B.C.E.  

The feeling of respect for the life, welfare, and happiness of all life on this planet, is the very basis for the continuity of our world. And, anyone who can't feel that respect, does not deserve to be in any US government position, ever!

Shirley Smith: Well, Pardon Me!

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,  

The Supreme Court set the pattern of usurping power through the GOP judges appointed throughout our court system (just do it, don't tell, and threaten anyone to ask) when they put their guy into the oval office in the year 2000.

So David Geffen says, quite correctly, that Hillary Clinton is divisive and polarizing, and that she likely could not win the general election, running against anybody the Republicans might put up. (An aside, does that include Sam Brownback and Gov. Huckabee, David?) He also allows that the Clintons engaged in a variety of various episodes of financial hanky-panky when they were in the White House, all this from a former enthusiastic Clinton supporter and major contributor.
