A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Martha Rosenberg

The Virginia Tech shootings present a dilemma for gun lovers. On the one hand, they feel bad for the families of the victims such as the mother who said she thought she would be buying her daughter's wedding dress and instead she is buying a funeral dress. And the professor who survived the Nazi holocaust only to be killed trying to save his students.

I'm afraid it is my duty to impart some bad news, and I advise you all to sit down before you fall down. The Attorney General of the United States apparently is suffering from a horrible disease. Best case scenario is we're talking a tertiary case of situational amnesia. For a lawyer, that can't be good. In his recent appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Alberto Gonzales was unable to recall anything...45 times, and that was before lunch. Maybe it's simply a case of hypoglycemia, since after lunch, he only couldn't recollect 29 times. I don't mean to minimize the critical nature of this crisis but the solution seems obvious to me: between meal snacks.

Subject: This Here Bush Administration Is Poisonous

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

The House Judiciary Committee has authorized an offer of immunity to compel testimony of former Justice Department-White House Liaison Monica Goodling, a key player in the U.S. Attorney scandal. The deal would legally prevent her from taking the Fifth before a Committee hearing as she has threatened.

Gonzales seems up a tree
In this case of D.C. muppetry.

All the strings are pulled by Karl
Underneath every smile a snarl.

But go ahead folks and place your bets
On resentment soon from his marionettes.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Hooray and three cheers for Dennis Kucinich! "Kucinich introduced Articles of Impeachment against Cheney in the Congress today."

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

Despite the criminal indictment, Tom DeLay is still running amok in the political world. Yesterday he accused Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of "getting very, very close to treason" for "announcing that we had lost the war" while soldiers are still "dying on the ground." Turns out he is a dirty, dirty hypocrite (thanks to the fine work of ThinkProgress).

There was an unbelievable story in The Cove Herald last week that comes from near where George Bush and I own property: Copperas Cove, Texas. Apparently two residents, Bill and Georgia Thomas, decided that the Resident in Chief deserved one of the three Purple Hearts Bill earned in Vietnam for "emotional wounds and scars" because people all over the world talk so badly about poor George.
