Bush Has Been Secretly Planning To Double Troops In Iraq By December

For many military families
That sound's not Santa knocking
It's, God help us, a second surge
In their Christmas stocking.

LONDON -- It's Iraq wot done him in. Tony Blair, that is.

What began with such promise when he became the British prime minister in 1997 is over, as dead as mutton. Blair can thank his pal the American president for that, as well as his own hubris.

I read your article on Mark Crispin Miller's book Fooled Again. I have great respect and appreciation for Dr. Miller's work. However, in the article, you only mention the following men who have tried to get the word out about the election reform issue: Steve Freeman, Bob Fitrakis, Harvey Wasserman, Steve Rosenfeld, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Greg Palast, Brad Friedman, Paul Lehto, Jonathan Simon, David Moore as those who are getting the word out about election reform. Where are the women who are getting the word out?

The divide between Democratic leaders contemplating their re-election prospects in 2008 and rank-and-file Democrats is becoming a chasm -- one so wide that Congressional Democrats may soon find it hard to straddle it.

The issue is impeachment.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

The longer the Bushies stay in power, the face of the Repuglican Party looks more and more corrupt, dishonest, fraudulent, and shady! The IRONY is Gonzales makes Ashcroft look really good! Actually George Bush makes Richard Nixon look saintly in comparison! And don’t even let me get started on Dick Cheney, Condi Rice, the neo-cons, and mainstream corporate media!!!! When gathered together they are the most repulsive, sordid, disgusting, bunch of associates trolling the halls of government we’ve ever had to endure!

Mr. President, for over 25 years you were a drunk
Of the combative and nasty variety
So it's kinda ill-advised for you to ever trot out
Any variation of the word "sobriety."

So you thought Creation 'Science' was dead, huh? You thought it has been replaced by the anti-evolutionary 'Science' of Intelligent Design considered by some a more difficult target for the rational thinkers of our society (theist and non-theist alike) to attack, huh? Well, you were wrong.
