BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

You don't have to see the R behind their names to know when a Repuglican is pontificating -- there are those "catch phrases" that immediately identify their partisan nature -- "our motives are pure, at the end of the day, and trust me" are just a few laughable comments they use to try and justify their latest lies!
