Will Durst: Presidential Spring Training

Written by

The World Series of Presidential politics may be 19 months down the road, but the players are already lacing up their cleats and playing pepper with fungo bats on the sandlots of Iowa and New Hampshire.

When many gamblers are bluffing
They unknowingly have a "tell"
A gesture they do which indicates
that they're thinking all too well.

Bush, who gambled it all on Iraq,
Has a tell -- there's no denying:
Each time you hear him say "uh"
You can bet the ranch he's lying.

BuzzFlash,  

Who are these people? More Bush GOP immature, little boy/girl kiss ass appointees? How can one department, nuclear weapons no less, be so inept as to lose so many computers? Heads ought to be rolling on the jailhouse floor. This isn't the inventory of a discount store.

Cindy Sheehan: Three Years Ago Today

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

Three years ago today, I was a "normal" American mother with four children, a marriage of almost 27 years and a boring 8 to 5 job. On April 3, 2004, I went to a nearby mall and bought a new outfit for work and two CDs: Evanescence and White Stripes. I was dreadfully worried about Casey, but I didn't know that my world was about to be turned upside down.
