Beware of the Ides of Iran

A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL

George W. Bush is the kind of man who pushes a guy under the wheels of an oncoming car, then "earnestly" vows a campaign against dangerous drivers – and he does it all with a smile.

Shirley Smith: Lawyer: Marines beat Yalies

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,  

Well, the US Marines beat up on those Yale singers. How heroic of them. Bush would have been very proud.  

As many as three U.S. Marines were involved in the alleged New Year's attack on the Baker's Dozen singing group, an attorney for two singers is claiming in a letter that asks for the head of the Marine Corps' help in the investigation

Frameshop: Franken Sets the Stage

Written by

JEFFREY FELDMAN'S FRAMESHOP

Al Franken officially launched his bid for Senate in Minnesota with what can only be described as a masterful online video message (transcript). Absolutely flawless.

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,  

I'm quite impressed with New Mexico, and their Governor Bill Richardson. We need more States to stand up against the treasonous Bush GOP war mongers. Propaganda and the criminals who spew it (Bush GOP) will not stop until they are stopped.

Subject: Thoughts on the Current State of Affairs

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Dave Lindorff

It's time to simply admit the obvious: The president of the United States is crazy as a loon, and the Congress and the media are functioning as co-dependents as he runs the country off a cliff.

 BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

"Pres. Bush and his spokesman Scott McClellan lied on the record in July 2003 about how the infamous 16-word statement - 'The British Government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa.' - came to be included in the speech." When it's O.K. to lie and then cover it up in order to wage a preemptive unnecessary war resulting in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent people, and more than three thousand American soldiers, you have to know America is in deep trouble! The longer George Bush and Dick Cheney are allowed to stay in office, the more America gets screwed!!!

Stephen Crockett: Republican Dishonesty on Iraq

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Stephen Crockett

Telling the truth to both the American public and themselves are weak points in the thinking of top Republican political figures. They have been intentionally dishonest with the voting public and intellectually dishonest with themselves on almost every aspect of the Iraq War.

Dr. J.'s Commentary: Sean Hannity's America

As those of you who listen to Sean Hannity regularly (and I do) know well, Hannity is against many things. "Being against," "always attacking, never defending" is the stock-in-trade of the thousands of Hannity-O'Reilly-Limbaugh clones that litter the countryside of right-wing and Christian Right talk radio and television. (I call the whole pack that gives voice to Karl Rove's Privatized Ministry of Propaganda "O'RHannibaugh" for short.)
