MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

All of the GOP supporters coming out for Libby . . . poor, poor little Libby having to go to jail for a few months . . . this criminal Bush GOP sentenced hundreds of thousands of people to death. This criminal Bush GOP have sentenced millions of innocent men, women, and children to a life of poverty, a life without homes, without an education, without a stable government.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Though he may like to think so, Fred Thompson is neither a Davy Crockett nor a Daniel Boone, just like he isn’t a real District Attorney! It’s all a façade---below the surface there is no substance to any of these Repuglicans and that’s why they have to conjure up a made for television charade!

Democrats in Congress, this message is for YOU! There's a reason Republicans call Democrats weak. IT'S BECAUSE YOU DAMN FREAKING ARE!!

My first BuzzFlash installment in what I have now decided will be an ongoing series under this title was published in this space on May 7, 2007, following the first Republican Presidential Debate. As I noted at the time, hearing these men talk brought many a chuckle to my throat. And so here are some more chuckles, garnered from the news, and a couple of possibly not-so-funny items.

It's not a bombshell he left the party
Many guessed he'd sometime try it
But the guy is so absurdly wealthy
I'm surprised he didn't just buy it.

Cindy Sheehan: Turn, Turn, Turn

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

To everything, there is a season. A time for war, a time for peace. Ecclesiastes, Hebrew Scriptures

I wish I could say I thought of something profound as I saw the president and his wife's picture on that billboard on Hwy 317 in my rearview mirror on my way out of Crawford today. I will be back for the final weekend farewell to Camp Casey on July 6, but I won't be back as the owner of property there, or as a leader of the American peace movement.

BARRY BONDS: Home Run King.

As the San Francisco Giants slugger approaches Henry Aaron's record for career homers, this probability seems to be turning otherwise rational people upside down, as Bonds has encountered an almost surreal level of hostility. The rage was on full display this past weekend in Boston, where Bonds had already made friends in 2004 by saying, "Boston is too racist for me."

There is something morally repugnant about claiming to support a war that involves the destruction of thousands of human lives unless you are truly committed to the cause this war advances. One test to see how committed you really are, is whether you would sacrifice your own life for it or the lives of others whom you love. If not, then you have no business underwriting others sacrificing their lives for the same cause. Those who fail this test are clearly hypocrites. Unfortunately, in America, there are a substantial number of such pseudo-patriots. Sitting behind the wheel, these bumper-sticker patriots take it slow, but play fast and furious with the lives of others. Safety first, at least for themselves -- unfortunately not for the service men and women who dodge land mines and the fire of automatic weapons in the hellish war that these "safe" drivers support.
