A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Michael Winship

Next time you feel as if there's actually an end in sight, hug a Democratic member of Congress. Yeah, you're right. On second thought, just send them some flowers or a fruit basket. A nice note will do.

Want an answer on how the war's going?
The truth cannot be masked:
Bush made a speech without even letting
A single question be asked.

"We don't have the votes," intones David Obey as he shepherds the supplemental spending bill that provides another $100 billion or so for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Obey's protestations to antiwar protesters are an understandable figleaf covering his continued support for the war. After all, he has voted in favor of all prior supplemental spending bills, excepting the October 2003 bill that actually included funds for reconstruction purposes in Iraq.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Little did we know in the beginning that the changes George Bush intended to make inside Washington, D.C. were the worst this country has ever endured. From "A to Z" they've plotted and planned an end to America's freedom and democracy! We are definitely in a "war" right here at home on the streets of America and these terrorists ain't foreign!

There is nothing as corrupt as using the governmental powers of law enforcement to selectively prosecute your political enemies and to cover-up criminal behavior by your political organization and allies, while in a position of political power. This situation is the essence of the current scandal concerning the firing of U.S. Attorneys by the Bush White House.

Leahy Demands Public Testimony From Key White House Officials In Prosecutor Probe

Besieged Republicans are
Snarling like trapped hyenas;
They now know who in D.C.
Has the biggest subpoenas.

Ann Coulter is not a joke. She is not perceptive. She offers no new insights, even from the Right. She is not irrelevant. She is not far out. She is not crazy. She is not brainless (indeed she may be very smart but that is hard to ascertain from a distance and through her public persona). She is not to be ignored. Nor is she to be shut up, as the Human Rights Campaign would like to do.
