If ex-NBA star Tim Hardaway hates gays
One could argue it wasn't wise
To play basketball where he'd often have to
Take showers near naked guys.

Nancy Pelosi declared on national television "impeachment is off the table." Impeachment, it seems, is too divisive for a 2008-oriented Democratic Party leadership and will interfere with the business of Congress over the next two years.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

President Bush recently fired seven U.S. Attorneys for political reasons and replaced them with members of his "inner circle."

MUST READ: Blair's Pullout, Prodi's Fall Point to Bush's Growing Isolation

Washington, DC - Today, Bloomberg reports that President Bush's failed strategy in Iraq has isolated the United States from our allies and weakened international support to deal with issues such as Afghanistan and Iran. Noting Britain's decision to withdraw some forces from Iraq and the resignation of Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi after political support eroded for the war in Afghanistan, allies are not joining U.S. efforts against the Taliban in Afghanistan "in part because they see the U.S. as too preoccupied with Iraq to craft an effective strategy."

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

The Bush administration claims that the Iraqi government supports our planned troop buildup. Today, however, Iraq's two highest leaders both praised and thanked the British for ordering a withdrawal of their forces.

Apparently the Iraqis want to be in charge of their own nation after all.

A nice side? I don’t think Dick's got one
If his pal Scooter is convicted
