Subject: John Kerry Gets It Together in WP Op-Ed: "When Resolve Turns Reckless" 12/24

Kerry's always had it together. Nothing's more tragic to me than when the left buys the RW smear. Their main tool that they know works? Embarrassment. Do not be. Ever.

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Michael Winship

The recent news of South Dakota Senator Tim Johnson's brain hemorrhage reminded me of the axiom that the surest way to make God laugh is to tell Him -- or Her -- your plans.

Why I Hate Virtually All Of The Washington Press Corps (Except For David Gregory)

by Tony Peyser

They should take Bush to task
For how he's misleading the nation
But tough questions they don't ask
And instead just take dictation.

The decision by President Bush to launch a preemptive invasion of Iraq was the biggest military misjudgment in the history of the American Presidency.

Dr. J.'s Short Shot: The BushGoal for Iraq

DR. J'S SHORT SHOT
by Steven Jonas, MD, MPH

The Report of the Iraq Study Group, the independent report from senior American diplomat Andrew Cordesman, various assessments from the CIA and the Pentagon themselves, all say that the U.S. is losing, or at least losing ground, in Iraq. All agree that there has to be some kind of reasonable, rational plan for a U.S. military withdrawal from Iraq within some reasonable period of time, "victory" or no. Yet in his Dec. 20, 2006 press conference, referenced on BuzzFlash on Dec. 21, Bush said:

As Christians all around the world are preparing to celebrate the birth of the "Prince of Peace," Bloody George has been seeking what has been called "advice" on sending upwards of 30,000 more troops to Iraq, but what should more truly be called, "covering his hiney." Bloody George is spending the birth of the Prince of Peace trying to discover, against all credible and moral opinion, how he can escalate the violence and killing in Iraq.

A BuzzFlash Reader Commentary

On Tuesday reporters from the Washington Post interviewed President Bush.

One of the reporters asked Bush if he'd made decisions regarding Iraq. Bush responded, "I have not. And we'll spend some more time -- Secretary Gates, as he indicated, is going to head to the region at some point in time. I need to talk to him when he gets back. And I'm going to take my time to make sure that the policy, when it comes out, the American people will see that we are -- have got a new way forward..."

Rep. Goode (R-Virginia) Wants No More Muslims Elected To Congress

Virgil does make an excellent point
We don't need their foreign views
Let's also get rid of any Hispanics
And Gays and Asians and Jews.

And so this is Christmas,
And what have you done?
Another year over,
A new one just begun.
(John Lennon)

Today is the 21st birthday of my youngest child, Janey. It is the 3rd birthday that she has "celebrated" since her oldest sibling, Casey was killed in Iraq. My other son, Andy, turned 21 the year Casey was killed. Carly, my oldest daughter, turned 24 the year after Casey was killed...the same age he was when BushCo sent him to die in their oil war for profit. In the one letter that Casey was writing 3 days before he was killed in the ambush that took the lives of six other soldiers, he expressed regret that he wouldn't be home for Janey's high school graduation that June. Little did we know, that he would be home, buried in his "final resting place" forever.

Subject: Ollie North

I was a Marine for 5 years in the late '50's. I saw many officers like Ollie, which is why I got out. My hero was "Chesty" Puller, a real combat veteran who was famous for standing in the open and actually leading his men during a fire-fight.
