And the Bushevik Band Played On

A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL

In case you didn’t notice, Alberto Gonzales is still Attorney General (although that may change soon, with the even more unctuous and repellent Orrin Hatch possibly replacing him) – and those political hacks who were "temporarily" appointed as partisan U.S. Prosecutors are going to do their dirty work unimpeded.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

Five years before the Federalist Society was created to promote conservatism in law and academia, Pat Robertson established Regent University in 1978 to "train men and women for the challenge of representing Christ in their professions." Nearly 30 years later, an alumna of Regent's no-so-esteemed law school made headlines by taking the Fifth over her role in the U.S. Attorney scandal.

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

Is there nothing left that these bastards can't try to rule and ruin? If this Congress does not impeach Bush and prosecute him, two years is a long time to allow such a criminal family to run loose without any controls at all.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

John McCain and three fellow Republicans chose the Shorja market as the location for their publicity stunt. Their bragging rights for spending an hour in the same location as a February bombing that killed 71 people was supposed to show the world that the "surge" strategy is working.

But just hours after their visit, the snipers are back in Shorja and 21 Shiites - all employed in the market - were abducted and killed on their way home from work. Six more kidnapped workers are still missing.

About a year from now, pundits and instant historians will point back at the firing of the federal prosecutors and say, "That's where the impeachment began."

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Wake up and smell the coup -- this is another brick in the foundation of the Bush road to FACSISM! "Prosecutor Posts Go To Bush Insiders." Karl Rove has his eyes on the prize and there is no relenting, their plan is to establish the Fourth Reich and rule the world!!! And because some thought "never again" could ever happen again, it is happening all over again!

Ever notice how NRA initiatives always sound like the boy who killed his parents and cried "I'm an orphan"?
