A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

First of all, before we get into the punditry, don’t stop doing whatever you might be working on to get out the vote for Democrats. Don’t stop until the polls close and you see that the doors are locked!

It is now very possible that we wake up on Wednesday morning with the Republicans keeping control of Congress and Karl Rove proclaimed the reigning genius of American politics.

Few recent elections have been as critical for the drug industry as this one. And that's the reason The Wall Street Journal reports that "Assailed by Democrats, drug companies are pouring millions of dollars into close races, giving some Republicans a financial edge."

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

How long should the Bush administration get away with their shenanigans by always claiming stupidity? We have to sue to get the papers of secret meetings by Cheney and information regarding 911. Bush resealed the papers of his father (shouldn't have been allowed to do this) George H. W. Bush, and President Reagan ... and even then, a group of partisan judges are able to stop that information from becoming public, or maybe it just gets shredded. Much of the regular government information to the public has been taken down from the Internet because of the Bush administration ... it's the public's right to know. The most secretive administration ever to supposedly work for the American people.

Ruth Lopez: Kerry Was Right

A BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION

Anyone who points out the Bush Administration's mean-spirited and self-serving treatment of our troops is quickly and loudly painted as anti-military. This is to stop the public from tuning into the sad reality that, for all their flag-waving, the Republicans' treatment of our troops is not much better than their treatment of Katrina victims.

DR. J'S SHORT SHOT
by Steven Jonas, MD, MPH

This morning, Ann Coulter, along with a steady stream of Republican heavyweights (and no Democrats) appeared on "Fox and Friends," the "fair and balanced" morning show of the Fox "News" Channel. She shared a couple of pieces of political wisdom with her audience that I thought might enlighten our readers about what she is really about (that is, if you need any further enlightening). First, she told us that the prime reason that the Republicans need to retain control of Congress was that only the Bush Administration could be trusted to secure our nation's security. This on the morning that the New York Times revealed that since March until Yesterday, the Department of Defense had up on the web a site about the dastardly Saddam Hussein that showed, among other things, how to make an atomic bomb. When asked how she would compare the Foley scandal with the Kerry scandal (sic), Ms. Coulter allowed that the former only concerned one single individual who needed help, while the latter concerned the whole of the Democratic Party, revealing how traitorous it is (well, you know those liberals). And there you have it, folks: the wisdom (sic, and sick) of Ann Coulter.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

"GEORGE W. BUSH, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: Imagine this. We're in the middle of a war on terror. And one of the most fundamental fights is in Iraq. And ... the Democrats have no plan for victory. They have no idea how to win." And now after three and a half years of continued fighting, and one failure after the other, it's painfully obvious, neither do you, George Bush! Seems to me you started this fight in Iraq, didn't finish the one in Afghanistan, and you certainly have not accomplished the mission!
