MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

The Superior man is liberal towards others' opinions, but does not completely agree with them; the inferior man agrees with others' opinions, but is not liberal with them. -- Confucius.

Karl Rove gave the Republican Party the political equivalent of the credit card teaser rate! It sure seemed good in the short term, but reality sets in over the long run. Yes, "political genius" Karl Rove is the Democratic secret weapon that spells many, many Democratic victories over the next generation.

Karl Rove is smart enough, but he's no genius. Rove's political depravity put moral Americans at a disadvantage in contests with him. But crediting him with innovation or genius is like crediting Jack the Ripper with the invention of the knife. So why did the political press do it? Why did they love Karl Rove?

Amicusbriefs: Backing Down From Cowards

A BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION
by Amicusbriefs

It is part of the job description of 21st century politicians to make a lot of noise. In the case of the Bush administration, the roar consists of laughable terror scares and pejoratives aimed at Democrats. They can't shout about any benevolent legislation, as everything Bush has signed into law has been either overtly or covertly harmful to human beings. Even the ruckus about national security - supposedly Bush's strongest favorable rating - is just white noise designed to confuse. We are in much greater danger as Americans due to Bush's "Bomb first and ask questions later" policy.

Will Durst: Me. Me. Me. Me. Me

Written by
You know what's wrong with America? I mean, besides a headache medicine that you apply to your forehead? Our national obsession with "me." Me. Me. Me. Me. Me. Nobody ever thinks about "us" anymore. It's all about "me." "You" are on your own. "We" is a convenient umbrella for a collection of like minded "me's," of which "I" better play a feature part and "they" and "them" are simply obstacles to be steered clear of at all costs and knocked down and run over with track cleats if unavoidable.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

While Bush fiddles down on the ranch and Americans go shopping at the mall on credit -- The US government is on a ‘burning platform’ of unsustainable policies and practices with fiscal deficits, chronic healthcare underfunding, immigration and overseas military commitments threatening a crisis if action is not taken soon, the country’s top government inspector has warned. David Walker, comptroller general of the US, issued the unusually downbeat assessment of his country’s future in a report that lays out what he called “chilling long-term simulations.”
