A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION

The 109th Congress is dead. Adjourned for good.

Hooray. Don't let the door bump your behinds on the way out.

These guys set new milestones for financial and moral hanky-panky, including 19 members under federal investigation and Friday's release of the House ethics report on the Mark Foley page scandal.

I just got my Visa bill for my final election donations-all those click-and-donate appeals in my email box and on the Web. I gave more than I thought I had, more than I'd intended to spend, and more than I'd ever given before. You make enough $25 to $50 contributions, and soon you're talking real money, a tenth of my annual income.

VERSE-CASE SCENARIO

Scandal-Ridden Democrat William Jefferson Proves D.C. Corruption Is Bipartisan!

The teensy difference is the Dems want
To unload this crooked bottom feeder
While Republicans changed various rules
To let DeLay remain Majority Leader.

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Dave Lindorff, co-author of "The Case for Impeachment"

The true horror of what President Bush -- and the Republican-led 109th Congress -- have done to all of us American citizens by authorizing torture in our names came clear during a talk I was giving on impeachment to a group organized by the New Jersey chapter of Progressive Democrats of America.

It is accountability time.

We know that up to $10 billion of reconstruction money for Iraq has been stolen, lost or misused and now we know that virtually none of the Iraqi oil revenue, which Paul Wolfowitz promised would be used to finance the war, has been spent.

Peter Michaelson: Al Gore at the Gate

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Peter Michaelson

Al Gore has graduated from making movies to making revolutions. He is about to incite the masses on behalf of his earth out of balance. As he announced this weekend, he plans to launch a global-warming political movement that will seek a "freeze" on carbon emissions. With Gore in the vanguard, a people-powered initiative can succeed.

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

This is such a waste of government money and people's rights, just so the Bush GOP can use these women as examples of what can happen if people protest the treasonous actions of the Bush GOP. Oh, don't for a minute think that Bush is not behind this so-called system of justice. I don't understand why a jury can't come to any conclusion regarding this case. They should have thrown it out where it belongs, with all of the other Bush-stinking baggage.

Run, Kucinich, Run!

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

Rep. Dennis Kucinich may not become president, but he will be a great candidate. A tireless hero of the progressive movement, Kucinich has been consistently outspoken in the House and the 2004 presidential campaign trail. What he lacks in electability he makes up for in being right.

A BUZZFLASH INTERVIEW

… many Americans don’t understand that the framers of this Constitution 200 years ago understood that there would be a Richard Nixon, and they understood that there would be a George Bush. And they said: American people, you have a remedy. We’re giving you a remedy. It’s 200 years old. It’s called impeachment. That’s designed to remove a President who threatens our Constitution and subverts our democracy. -- Elizabeth Holtzman

Amre Moussa, the Foreign Minister of Egypt, warned us before we began the war in Iraq that the war would "open the gates of hell," and it has. The news from Iraq is a daily list of horrors. The war has destabilized the region and has made the whole world less safe. Americans have finally recognized all this and have turned against the war and the US occupation. Americans are motivated now to reflect on what happened, and there are some deep lessons to be learned.
