BUZZFLASH MAILBAG

Subject: Kerry's comments

While I do think John Kerry speaks with his foot in his mouth, the president usually has both feet in his mouth and we hardly hear any media backlash.

For the wingers to scream what an insult it is to the soldiers for Kerry's remarks, I never heard a peep out of any of them when they insulted and demeaned every person that has ever served in the military with their despicable display of the bandage with the purple heart they seemed so proud to show off at the Republican convention.

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

When I see polls like this, I'm suspicious. Judges today are not independent, at least those appointed by the GOP. Bush would not be squatting in the White House if it weren't for partisan judges on the Supreme Court who got their payback. Even Scalia's son got a job. We've seen that those who have been appointed by the Republican Party keep giving back to the GOP. People are still brainwashed by the very word of judge. We've been brought up that way. At least, I'm using myself as an example, because before Bush was illegally put into the White House, I actually thought judges appointed to Federal Courts and the Supreme Court took their jobs seriously ... and, I was right, they do and they pay back those who put them in those jobs ... that's how serious this whole judge situation is.

When I was in the second grade, there was a girl in another second grade classroom who had cerebral palsy. When we passed by the door on our way to assembly or the cafeteria we could see that, unlike all the other pupils, she sat behind an enormous electric typewriter -- to kids of our era, a contraption as sci-fi as time travel.

A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL

We are constantly amazed to find even our most progressive friends fall into the "moderate Republican" trap.

"Oh," we will hear, "He (or she) is such a nice person and good on choice and Head Start and things. We need to encourage moderation in the Republican Party."

Last week my column was a parody of how Thomas Friedman writes about the global economy. Since then, I've learned that I was in error on a matter that shines some light on the worldview of the syndicated New York Times columnist and best-selling author.

Subject: Rush Limbaugh

So Rush Hudson Limbaugh the third has decided to comment on Michael J.Fox after Mr. Fox made a T. V. spot for a democratic candidate. Fox made the endorsement because the the candidate supports using stem cells in research and face it, like it or not, the stem cells would be thrown out (or killed if you please) if they weren't used, so why not put them to a good use and try to help some people who are suffering?
