Never judge a book by its cover is an old saying that usually means looks can be deceiving. With Bush, when I think of it, the cliche reminds me of times when traveling or in school, having met a few individuals who would pack their reading material around or under their arms covered with the covers from books of well known literature, hoping people wouldn't notice what they were really reading, as if anyone cared.
Subject: Bush Stirs Up More Hate
If you believed all the high-ratings terror-talk that has been spewing forth from the major news media the past few days, you might not want to get on a commercial airliner ever again. After all, the passenger next to you might detonate their tube of Crest or their bottle of Herbal Essence, and you would be covered in glycerin and Blue Lake #4. God forbid, you might end up scarred for life by some fitness water.

The evils of Bushism are most obvious in times of crisis. When true leadership is most needed, its absence is most painfully clear.
We saw this on 9/11, when the Oblivious One apparently did not realize that the crashing of a commercial jetliner into the tallest building in the United States was more important than reading to second graders from My Pet Goat. Over time, we have learned there was much this dastardly administration could have done to avert the incomprehensible events of that day.

The leading pro-war Democrat in the Senate is hoping for a landslide in the New York primary next month. And unless progressives quickly mobilize to dent her vote total, she's likely to get it.
A must-see video from a BuzzFlash reader:
This video I made is starting to get some buzz and I would love to see it on BuzzFlash.
BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE
"Two Hezbollah members of the Lebanese Cabinet said Saturday the militia wanted to keep its weapons south of the Litani River -- a zone the U.N. resolution calls for demilitarizing. Yet the Cabinet unanimously approved the resolution, with Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah indicating the two Hezbollah ministers voted for it in a spirit of national unity." Hmm, sounds like a "signing statement" to me! Could it be, that Nasrallah and Hezbollah have taken a cue from George Bush on how to implement a "line item veto," how to appear as though you agree when you really don't? Could it be a case of twisted minds and "egotestical" men thinking alike?

Gee, I'd like to thank John Boehner for declaring open season for
pejorative neohomophones with his recent characterization of anti war
Democrats as "Defeatocrats."
News from the DNC:
Washington, DC – The failed policies of Washington Republicans continue to make America less safe. As recently as this morning, RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman used misleading rhetoric to cover up the fact that Republicans have consistently blocked Democratic attempts to make our country secure. And, the latest polls continue to show that the American people are dissatisfied with the President and his party on a number of issues and want Democratic leadership in Congress.
WORLD MEDIA WATCH
1//Arab News, Saudi Arabia--OUTRAGE OVER BUSH'S USE OF ‘FASCIST' TERM (US President George W. Bush's statement that the US is at war with "Islamic fascists" will deepen anti-American and anti-Western sentiments, a cross-section of expatriates contacted by Arab News said yesterday. Reacting to the report that some Muslims in Britain were involved in the plot to blow up aircraft bound for US airports from London, the US president said: "It was a stark reminder this nation is at war with Islamic fascists who will use any means to destroy those of us who love freedom, to hurt our nation." Describing the US president's remarks as "ill-conceived" and "inappropriate", expatriates from Britain, India and Pakistan said some hypermarkets in Riyadh had already withdrawn American products from their shelves in response to the US' anti-Islam campaign. "By linking Islam with fascism, Bush is stoking the fire of hatred against his country and his people, besides further expanding the recruitment pool of extremists," said the expatriates.)
