BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Somehow I am circumspect in believing that the same man who couldn't identify and distinguish earth bound foreign leaders in an interview, now claims that "God" talks to him! Is he quite sure it's God, or could the entity that's telling him to go and fight wars that kill innocent human beings, possibly be the one with horns and a tail??? Is it possible that in his ignorance George Bush has mistaken "the who" of his hallucinations?

Next time you feel as if there's actually an end in sight, hug a Democratic member of Congress. Yeah, you're right. On second thought, just send them some flowers or a fruit basket. A nice note will do.

Want an answer on how the war's going?
The truth cannot be masked:
Bush made a speech without even letting
A single question be asked.

"We don't have the votes," intones David Obey as he shepherds the supplemental spending bill that provides another $100 billion or so for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Obey's protestations to antiwar protesters are an understandable figleaf covering his continued support for the war. After all, he has voted in favor of all prior supplemental spending bills, excepting the October 2003 bill that actually included funds for reconstruction purposes in Iraq.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

The House Oversight and Reform Committee held a hearing Monday on the Bush Administration's control over scientific findings regarding climate change. The hearing centered around claims of censorship by Dr. James Hansen, director of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies.
