Will Kimbrough's Americanitis
Will Kimbrough is a piece of work.
The Mobile-born, longtime Nashville resident is an especially gifted guitarist who's played with cream of the crop folks like Rodney Crowell, Lyle Lovett, Guy Clark and Joe Ely. He produces, too, including East Nashville Skyline by Todd Snider, who's as close as we may get to the new John Prine.

News from the DNC:
Dean On Bush's Disappearing Credibility On Iraq
Washington, DC - Yesterday, White House Press Secretary Tony Snow continued the false rhetoric of President Bush and Vice President Cheney and announced that "there is not a civil war going on" and that there has been "improvement" on the ground in Iraq. But, these latest pronouncements contradict a report prepared by the Defense Intelligence Agency on August 3rd which indicated that the "number of roadside bombs exploded or found in Iraq rose in July to the highest monthly total since the war began." In addition, last month was the deadliest month of the Iraq War, as an average of more than 110 Iraqis were killed each day in July. The New York Times also quoted a senior defense official, who concluded that the "insurgency has gotten worse by almost all measures." [New York Times, 8/17/06]
A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS
Looks like George W. Bush gives as much attention to his official website, WhiteHouse.gov, as he does to world affairs. Four weeks ago BuzzFlash wrote about dozens of transcripts we found on the site containing the Latin word sic (used to indicate errors in the original source to show that printed mistakes aren't typos) after many of the President's attacks on the English language.
"The United States Of America Is Engaged In A War Against An Extremist Bunch Of Folks"
by Tony Peyser
This was Bush talking about the latest threat
That was made by terrorists against our nation
But when I saw the headline, my first thought
Was the battle against his administration.

Thanks for continuing to further PNAC plans.
"There IS NO MORE IRAQ. There will be three territories." -- Kissinger, caught briefing his Saudi clients IN EARLY 2004.
Get your heads out of your keesters, Buzz. You're selling their thinly-veiled plan to keep four major airbases and a citadel larger than the Vatican in former Iraq.
•Partition is not A LEGAL POWER OF AN ILLEGALLY OCCUPYING ARMY up to its neck in massive war crimes.
Please make a note of it. I still send people to your site, and that is going to END if you don't realize you're aiding the enemy.
BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE
"Bush made clear in a private meeting this week that he was concerned ... and frustrated that the new Iraqi government -- and the Iraqi people -- had not shown greater public support for the American mission, participants in the meeting said Tuesday." What's a moron to do, when the "liberated" don't bow down to the liberator??? What can be done about those who don't show enough appreciation for having their country turned into a war-zone of "shock and awe," "sectarian violence," civil war, death and destruction? Bush lives in a constant state of delusion, comprised of hallucination, fantasy, and an overblown self-image and sadly the whole world suffers his madness!

One of the great things about books is sometimes there are some fantastic pictures. -- President George W. Bush (U.S. News and World Report, January 3, 2000)
So many books, so little time. Just over two years remain and the president still has a lot of reading to do before he's off the world stage and won't have to quote Albert Camus to impress foreign dignitaries any more.
MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON
Hmmmm. Are gypsies allowed in US military and Jews? A foolish rule that I don't know when or how it started, since gays have been around the whole time of the evolution of human beings on this planet and are not the odd or the strange, and I have no tolerance for these stupid bigoted bastards who try to make them so. And, I long for the day when those who hate the gays are the minorities in this country. They certainly are in many other countries. I read somewhere, long ago, that gays have only been ostracized down through history, since the birth of Christianity. How odd, don'tcha think? When most religions are supposed to glorify all gifts of life. Of course, if that were true, there would be no wars.
Subject: A Couple Quotes from Today
In an interview with David Gregory, Ken Mehlman said: “There's nothing more important to me, as you know, than electing Republicans. It's what I spend my life doing. It's my passion.”
What a surprise. Republicans feverishly exploiting their echo chamber to pound out the familiar percussive drumbeat that Democrats are weenie girly men who can't be trusted to keep their frilly underwear unsoiled much less protect this country from terrorists. GOP mole Joseph Lieberman parroted the same crass cross party line when he nasally whined that Ned Lamont's win over him was a victory for the kind of people involved in the British Pakistani airline bomb plot. One news anchor on Fox News called Democrats "the Al Qaeda Party." And in response, Democrats have vowed to mount a vigorous defense. Soon. Maybe. Once they rinse out their underwear.
