The divide between Democratic leaders contemplating their re-election prospects in 2008 and rank-and-file Democrats is becoming a chasm -- one so wide that Congressional Democrats may soon find it hard to straddle it.
The issue is impeachment.
BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE
The longer the Bushies stay in power, the face of the Repuglican Party looks more and more corrupt, dishonest, fraudulent, and shady! The IRONY is Gonzales makes Ashcroft look really good! Actually George Bush makes Richard Nixon look saintly in comparison! And don’t even let me get started on Dick Cheney, Condi Rice, the neo-cons, and mainstream corporate media!!!! When gathered together they are the most repulsive, sordid, disgusting, bunch of associates trolling the halls of government we’ve ever had to endure!
Mr. President, for over 25 years you were a drunk
Of the combative and nasty variety
So it's kinda ill-advised for you to ever trot out
Any variation of the word "sobriety."
So you thought Creation 'Science' was dead, huh? You thought it has been replaced by the anti-evolutionary 'Science' of Intelligent Design considered by some a more difficult target for the rational thinkers of our society (theist and non-theist alike) to attack, huh? Well, you were wrong.

"It is this kind of political theater that has caused the American people to lose confidence in how Washington operates," President Bush said on Monday about Democratic plans for a no-confidence vote on Attorney General Gonzales.
Well gee, isn't that the point of a vote of no-confidence? It is amazing how effortlessly Bush can blame Democrats for why folks are upset about the AttorneyGate scandal. Talk about shooting the messenger.

Last night, while surfing for something to watch on the television, my husband ran across the show "Austin City Limits." The Dixie Chicks were playing, so he stopped his surfing and we watched them perform. It was good to see them up on stage performing again, especially in a Texas venue, though I do believe the show was a rerun from about a year ago.

We have an old saying in my adopted state of Texas and you may have it in your own state too: "Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it." America is not unique for perpetuating a history founded on genocide and where violence is constantly relied upon for problem solving, but this is our country and how can we finally learn the lessons of war and corrupt regimes?
