A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

Today, BuzzFlash received a donation request email from the GOP. As we're sure the Republicans do with the Democratic email alerts, we signed up because we're curious about how they are marketing themselves to the electorate (or, at the very least, to their base).

Tom Breuer: Review of "Culture Warrior"

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Tom Breuer

Bill O'Reilly starts off his latest paean to himself with a call to action against the dark forces of secular-progressivism, promising to "get this culture war over with faster than anyone believes" and dubbing himself "O'Reilly Tzu"-in a wry nod to the ancient Chinese military sage Sun Tzu.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

Today's report that the Justice Department will dispatch hundreds of election monitors to the polls next Tuesday should do little to assuage voters' fears of Republican prevarication. After all, a skilled magician may be the only one who knows what he is keeping up his sleeve, regardless of how many people are watching.

Amy Branham: My Flag - Part II

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Amy Branham

Last week I wrote about my flag, the flag that covered the coffin of my son. This week, I am writing to tell you that while Old Glory does not fly at my home, there is a flag that does fly. It is the Colonial Flag, a replica of the original flag that stood for so much and inspired so many patriots.

BuzzFlash Mailbag for November 1, 2006

BUZZFLASH MAILBAG

Subject: Bush/Kerry Dust Up

First, with regard to "our" president campaigning around the country on behalf of Republicans, let me say that in all of my 61 years, I have never heard a president spew such vitriolic, partisan rhetoric. From a president of this great country, this is absolutely contemptible.

Second, this attack on John Kerry is ridiculous. What is it with this administration and sliming veterans?

The press is pathetic. After one or two questions, they give Cheney a pass on his waterboarding remarks. Over. Done. Tony Snow said the vice president was not referring to waterboarding when he said a dunk in the water was a no-brainer to him. Tony Snow said it was ridiculous to think the vice president would be caught saying that he condoned waterboarding. We do not torture. Done. End of story. Right.

But the press is only too happy to do the administration's bidding and make a big deal out of Kerry's remarks, which, I am told, should have been seen or heard with his preceding remarks in order to understand the context.

Kerry had it right. To paraphrase, "If you think a veteran would criticize the troops, you're crazy." He's right. They are crazy. And when veterans don't jump to defend one of their own, it confirms that it is partisan politics that has a stranglehold on our democracy - the constitution, morals, values, the vigorous defense of right over wrong, all be damned.

Ray McGovern: Bush The Cheerleader

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Ray McGovern

When President George W. Bush was asked at his news conference last Wednesday whether we are winning in Iraq, he answered, "Absolutely; we're winning." The disingenuousness was almost enough to provoke sympathy for the beleaguered president as he lived through another bad week with further diminished credibility.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

It is unjust, bizarre, and ludicrous to reduce the death and dying in Iraq to a game of "winning" or "losing"! How does one claim victory when over 2700 American soldiers are dead, when 600,000 innocent Iraqis are dead, when children are left without a father or a mother! The war in Iraq is not a Sunday afternoon game of sport, it is a tragedy of inconsolable death and dying. When will this incompetent cabal of bullies, of madmen, realize that lives are being lost on that battlefield of terror and horror that they, George Bush, Dick Cheney, and the rest of the Bush team, unnecessarily created!
