A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION

I love the theater but never come late. Or try not to. I had a girlfriend many years ago who so consistently was late for the theater I fantasized about publishing a book of the first acts of plays we'd missed because of her pokiness.
BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE
Mr. Carville, we know your wife is a Repuglican, we know you love her very much, but really sir, when did you start advising the Repuglican Party??? "CARVILLE: ... I also think that there's a good chance that the Republican nominee is not even in the race yet. BLITZER: So, give me some names. CARVILLE: Jeb Bush. He's ... the only person I know who could unify the Republican Party. ... there's a political market ... there's great dissatisfaction ... I don't see a unifying force within the Republican Party right now that can run for president, other than Jeb Bush. That's why I think that, in -- in the end, the party will turn to him." Another Bush indeed, what a revolting development that would be! Does anyone really want "apocalypse now"???
This doesn't really surprise me
But I do want to point out at this time
That everywhere Karl seems to be
Seems to be the scene of the crime.

A BUZZFLASH INTERVIEW
I believe that we’re close to a tipping point right now. What happened to the Soviet Union between 1989 and 1991 could easily be happening to us for essentially the same reasons. Imperial overreach, inability to reform, rigid economic ideology. ... The world’s balance of power didn’t change one iota on September 11, 2001. The only way we could lose the power and influence we had at that time was through our own actions, and that’s what we did.
A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS
Iraq is spiraling towards violence in way most people do not realize. But it is not because of what is going on in Iraq; the problem is what is coming out of Iraq.
An estimated 2.3 million Iraqis have fled the country since the 2003 invasion, and 1.7 million are displaced within Iraq. These 4 million uplifted people make up about 16% of the 2003 population of roughly 25 million.

"When assessing the legacy of Bill Clinton, we can't overlook his shameful sexual behavior in the Oval Office... Indeed, it is my belief that no man has ever done more to debase the presidency or to undermine our Constitution -- and particularly the moral and biblical principles upon which it is based -- than has William Jefferson Clinton."
A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT
There's a reason why we call Rep. Henry Waxman the "bulldog." Today Waxman wrote a letter to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice demanding responses to some 11 inquires he has sent her since 2003 that have gone unanswered.
