Shirley Smith: And What Was the Dodo?

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

More proof that Americans need to see that the GOP goes down in our Congress like the Dodo (flightless bird, big head, stumpy, and said to be a simpleton) went down in history. No sign of them. They disappeared because it was said that they feared no man and were easily killed. The Bush GOP fear no one and get everyone else easily killed.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

For an administration that claims a dislike of lawyers and lawsuits, this one sure has a whole lot of legal representation at every level including some family!!! One such example being Elizabeth Cheney's husband, Philip Perry who was general counsel for the Dept. of Homeland Security before he conveniently resigned to join a law firm, just last month after the Democrats regained the majority in Congress!! It's called, getting out of Dodge while you can, Perry must have known "congressional hearings" would in fact reveal "that Perry did everything he could to frustrate and hinder government investigation into Homeland Security"!!! What is it with these Repuglicans, why do they do everything they can to destroy the American government? Why do they want to demolish freedom and democracy?

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Lucinda Marshall

Governor Rick Perry's decision to sidestep the Texas legislature and issue an executive order mandating that girls entering the 6th grade receive the new HPV vaccine raises troubling questions about the influence pharmaceutical companies wield on the crafting of public health policy. Cervical cancer is only expected to cause 3,670 deaths in the U.S. in 2007, a miniscule percentage (less than 2%) of the 270,000 deaths from the disease worldwide and only 1% of the total annual number of deaths from all cancers in the United States.

When many White House journalists ask questions
see softballs gently lobbing
(They don't seem to like it whenever their jobs
get in the way of their hobnobbing.)

 

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

And, I suppose McCain thinks he is a representative of the US military today? This Bush criminal regime has done everything they can to shut up any voices in the military, and they don't even respect them enough to attend the funerals. We've seen one dead soldier brought home alone and with cargo as his companion and he gave all he had to give to this country and that is the respect our dead get from this treasonous regime.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

Are you a soldier worried about being killed in Iraq? Fear no longer; the Army has instituted a new safety precaution just for you. No, it's not body armor or better training, and it sure ain't an exit strategy.

He learned about Plame from Dick Cheney
A month earlier, then time some flew
He forgot about it, then learned about it later
From Tim Russert as if it were new.

Subject: Take a Note From Joe Wilson

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

Last week, BuzzFlash highlighted the problem of an estimated 50,000 private military contractors running amok in Iraq at taxpayer expense. They are completely hidden from government oversight and their activity is not accountable to either military or civilian law. A congressional hearing before the House Reform Committee led by chairman Rep. Henry Waxman yesterday exposed even more waste and corruption than previously suspected, particularly surrounding the leading contractor and war-profiteer, Blackwater.
