When you're the point man for The Rapture.

James C. Moore: On Covering Karl

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by James C. Moore, author The Architect

When I was a boy, I wanted to grow up to be the leftfielder for the Detroit Tigers. I did not plan on becoming the unofficial biographer of a political consultant. But I ran into Karl Rove in 1979 in Austin after he had just played a role in electing the state's first Republican governor since Reconstruction. He was in Austin. I was in Austin. He was in politics. I was a political reporter. I couldn't have avoided him if I wanted and if I had tried I would not have been doing my job.

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

Republicans (the Bush administration) are going to keep America safe? Outsourcing. Isn't that where bin Laden the blow back came from? Working for US Intelligence or at least he was trained by the CIA and was working for the US.

VERSE-CASE SCENARIO

W. vs. POW

by Tony Peyser

It's hard to twist McCain's arms
With any diplomatic ease
When that already has been done
For years by the Vietnamese.

BUZZFLASH MAILBAG

Subject: GOP Senator "Defending" the Geneva Conventions

Lindsey Graham is much in the news these days as a defender of the Geneva Conventions:

After the Supreme Court struck down the administration’s earlier plan for military tribunals in June, [Senators Graham, McCain, and Warner] joined with top military lawyers to form the chief bulwark against what they said were efforts to undermine military law and the 60-year-old protections of the Geneva Conventions.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

How long you wanna bet it'll take Karl Rove to cook up a story that this is either Bill Clinton's or Osama's fault? "NASA delayed the planned landing of space shuttle Atlantis ... Landing had been scheduled for Wednesday morning ... concerns that something crucial floated out of the craft prompted the delay, space shuttle communicator Terry Virts told the crew."

Michael Winship: Still a Few Bugs in the System

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION

New York State has another year to go before we start using them new-fangled, electronic voting machines. But if a look at what's happening in other parts of the country is any indication, we are blessed by the delay. Under current circumstances, we should be dragged kicking and screaming into the future.

Steven Jonas: Why is George So Upset?

by Steven Jonas, MD, MPH

George Bush is presently engaged in yet another attempt to get Congress to pass the US equivalent of the March, 1933 Nazi-German Enabling Act (which gave Hitler dictatorial powers under the cloak -- yes, this is the one Hitler used -- of "dealing with matters of national security"). The main piece of legislation is the one that would allow the Georgites to unilaterally amend the Fourth Amendment on their own authority to permit warrantless wiretapping when they say that it is justified to do so. It has already been approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee (see BuzzFlash, Sept. 13, 2006). I have read the Constitution numerous times and I find nothing in it that permits such actions, other than going through the Constitutional amendment process itself. But Bush wants to be able to amend the Constitution on his own and the Republican Congress appears now to be giving him that power.

Let's begin today a national letter writing campaign sending hundreds of thousands of letters to every newspaper in America, calling for front page coverage of the dangers of another Constitutional crisis from another questionable election, and editorial campaigns to prevent this travesty while there is still time.

Thomas Paine and his fellow traitor to the Crown and champion of democracy George Washington must be standing at the Gates of heaven and pounding the table while they call down to us with outrage about what we do.
