A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Michael Winship

So shocked were certain elements of the right by the vigor and ire with which Bill Clinton came out swinging on Fox News Sunday, they resorted to a stupefyingly base explanation. Matt Drudge and the right wing website Little Green Footballs, to name two, suggested that the former president may have been drinking.

I am a Sam Nunn Democrat who begins with this: I salute you and everything you have done for our country. Some of you are heroes in uniform. All of you are heroes in spirit. All Americans owe you a deep debt of gratitude for all you have done, and all you are doing and will always do every time our country calls you.

In your hands, in a few short weeks, rests one of the most important decisions the voters of America will ever make in a Congressional election.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZ

“The horrific blast sent women engulfed in flames screaming through the streets. Two preteen girls embraced each other as they burned to death, witnesses said…a woman who clutched her infant child as she bled from a wound in her neck. ‘She mumbled some words incoherently,’ said Um Ali, 40. ‘Then she fell at my doorstep and died.'' This isn’t freedom and democracy, this isn’t progress, this is unspeakable horror unleashed by George Bush’s preemptive unnecessary war! My God, when is it going to end!

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

Iraq and New Orleans are not the only places where corruption causes taxpayer money to be spent based on Bush loyalty over merit. According to a new government report, the $5 billion Reading First program - a staple of No Child Left Behind - only allowed states to receive funding for curriculums developed by the publisher McGraw-Hill, Inc.

WORLD MEDIA WATCH FOR SEPTEMBER 25, 2006

1//The Daily Times, Pakistan--RUSSIA WARNS AGAINST IRAQ-STYLE ‘PROOF’ IN IRAN NUCLEAR STANDOFF (The United Nations must not rely on the kind of evidence used to justify slapping sanctions on Iraq ahead of the 2003 US-led invasion when considering Iran’s nuclear programme, Russia said Saturday. In an interview published in Saturday’s edition of Greek newspaper Kathimerini, Russian Defence Minister Sergei Ivanov said the UN should only consider sanctions if presented with “concrete and incontrovertible evidence that Iran is attempting to build nuclear weapons and clear evidence that it is supporting international terrorism.” … . One of the reasons the United States and Britain gave for supporting sanctions against Iraq and invading was that Baghdad under former dictator Saddam Hussein was developing weapons of mass destruction [WMDs]. Over three years after the invasion no serious evidence of WMDs has been found in the country. … . Moscow is opposed to the idea of imposing sanctions on Iran, despite the fact that Tehran ignored a August 31 UN Security Council deadline to suspend its uranium enrichment activities. Referring to the US take on the current crisis, Lavrov on Thursday criticised what he called “the obsession with sanctions.”)

Will Durst: Compassionate Torturer

Written by

I always tremble like a hamster duct taped to a roto-tiller when George Bush struts into the spotlight on the world stage as he did this week when addressing the UN. The same feeling I get when San Francisco Giants closer Armando Benitez takes the mound in a save situation. It's a cover-your-eyes and peek-through-your-fingers sort of thing. A breath-holding whispered-prayers kind of time. Exciting, but not in what you call your good way. In a sweaty way.
