Subject: Lynne Cheney as Possible U.S. Senator from Wyoming?
Hi to fellow sane people out there,
Have you heard that Lynne Cheney may become one of those from Wyoming who is being suggested to replace the senator who died? These republicans (Rove) will stop at nothing. All of us need to write all their state senators (both dems and repubs) to express outrage. Especially write the Dem Gov. who in no way should choose Lynne Cheney to represent the people in Wyoming. I just can't stand it.

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Marjorie Cohn
In 2002, Donald Rumsfeld famously called the detainees at Guantánamo "the worst of the worst." General Richard B. Myers, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, warned they were "very dangerous people who would gnaw hydraulic lines in the back of a C-17 to bring it down." These claims were designed to justify locking up hundreds of men and boys for years in small cages like animals.
MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON
Respect? Fox News never heard of the word. Does the term "dirty tricks" come to mind? How could anyone mistake Rep. Conyers of Michigan for Rep. Jefferson of the state of Louisiana, without doing it on purpose?

Nation's Editorials: No Pardon for Libby
Washington, DC - While editorials from all around the country are emphatically agreeing that President Bush must not pardon I. Lewis Scooter Libby, and while even a former senior Administration official admitted a pardon would be a show of "deep disregard for the rule of law," the President is under fire from his conservative base to do exactly that. As the New York Times noted today, that same former senior Administration official agrees that Libby has "failed to meet the general standard for a pardon by not showing contrition or serving any time."

Subject: The Assault On Power By Al Gore
Former Vice President Al Gore has written a book that permits Americans to know that he is definitely the only Democrat with the knowledge, guts and spine to be able to take on big government controlled by big business and corporate America and put our Constitution back in its rightful place, returning our nation to its enviable position in the world: a nation of laws and not of men. He understands that corporations are in charge of this country and will grind the middle class and the poor working man into the mud under their heels, with the gleeful cooperation of the House and the Senate because these elected individuals depend upon big business to be reelected over and over again and so are feeding daily at the corporate trough via campaign finances and lobby massage in the "back rooms" where sweet deals are made for globalized corporations that truly "screw" the people of the USA.
BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE
"... the chairman of the Arkansas Republican Party, Dennis Milligan told a reporter that America needs to be attacked by terrorists so that people will appreciate the work that President Bush has done ..." '... I think all we need is some attacks on American soil like we had on [Sept. 11, 2001]," Milligan said to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette ..." Hmm, Are the Repuglicans really calling for another "new Pearl Harbor"? Do they want yet another 9-11? Are they willing to sacrifice more American lives in order to stay in power? Do they think further attacks will benefit their party? Do they really believe more attacks will help Bush? When any American calls for more attacks on American soil for any reason at all, it is an abomination! The Repuglican cancerous tumor has metastasized, and to continue on without remedy will be lethal for us all! IMPEACH BUSH/CHENEY!!!
This Republican White House
It's finally being shown
Has a secret plan to fly
Under any radar known.
