MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON
Forty-four Democrats want Bush to be allowed to keep killing off our military, who will be literally "sitting targets" in Baghdad. Putting our troops in the homes of people in Baghdad is about the craziest plan to see that our military are easy kills, and it is, again, a treasonous decision. We are hated in Iraq. And the only reason for any kind of friendliness would be to get uniforms and weapons. Bush and his people know this. They just don't give a damn. Bush wants to be able to stay in Iraq and keep the occupation fueled or attack Iran, and then leave this nation with the mess. He needs to be made accountable. High government officials who commit crimes against humanity must, "must" pay the price.

If these Democrats vote Republican to represent their district then what in the hell do we need them for? Ralph Hall is a prime example. What this does is water down the Democratic Party. We don't see this in the Republicans because a Democrat posing as a Republican would never win in the first place, but the GOP recognize how useful it is to have Democrats winning elections and voting Republican.
Subject: Democrats To Bush: Work With Us
Jim Webb was perfect, except, we're not living in two different countries. We're living in two different moral universes because we're not dealing with two different POLITICAL dialectics, but, rather, in two different LEGAL dichotomies.
BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE
Chipping away at democracy--it won't be long now--another curve in the road map towards fascism--right here in the good ole U.S. of A.!!! A little bit here, a little bit there, and if allowed to continue we may not see the end of George Bush come 2008! As we witness the forced exodus of federal prosecutors, we are reminded that the year 2000 showed us all what a stacked court could do to democracy by rendering the people's choice for president null and void! And just what do you think a bunch of "biased" federal prosecutors can do to our freedoms????
A BUZZFLASH ALERT
We came across this exciting online tool: an electoral map that allows you to change states according to whether or not you think they will go red or blue in 2008. It’s located here: http://www.270towin.com/
So here is how this BuzzFlash contest works.
You pair up any potential Democratic candidates into a Presidential and Vice-Presidential ticket – and then you use the map to show how that particular ticket would reach the 270 votes needed to elect a President and Vice-President.
A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS
On the whole, George W. Bush's State of the Union last night was depressing and regretful, other than at the end when he milked the heroism and accomplishments of others to end on a high note. As in past years, he also proposed generally progressive policies that he has no intentions of actually following through on.

Hmm - I wonder why he didn't think of that before he invaded. He says the "egg is just cracked" (maybe he's really referring to his own head!) but in Iraq the egg was smashed no later than April 2003. Now he's noticing?
A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
If you watched freshman Virginia Sen. Jim Webb deliver the Democratic response to Bush’s State of the Union speech, you witnessed something historic -- a Democrat on national TV unabashedly ripping into six years of Bush rule for an uninterrupted 10 minutes.
