From The Economist:
Of course, Representative McKinney's call for an inquiry into this "monumental failure," which greatly benefited Bush family interests, marks her as a lunatic conspiracy theorist.
live on a steady diet of "Who cares what you think" from Bush
each day that passes. Bush has extended this attitude around the world.
The important thing for citizens of other nations to understand is that
Bush is not the US, and the US is not Bush. Americans feel badly enough
about the incident, but when they make it a point to apologize to other
nations for actions and non-actions of their president, it is a sad, sad
day for the United States.
Send this to all your conservative friends. Don't let it die.
50,996,582 Gore votes minus 50,456,062 Bush votes equals Gore winning by 540,520.
Ever notice how Ari and his goons always refer to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge as "ANWAR"? The real name sounds too beautiful and conjures up in peoples minds pure white snow, majestic mountains and Caribou. By contrast, ANWAR sounds like Osama's childhood buddy. I'm 100% sure this is deliberate...

I cannot understand why Cynthia would be ostracized for asking for or thinking that likely we should have a deep digging investigation into the events of 9/11/01. There are likely millions of us who would love to see that happen...It has been almost eight months since that awful day, and I don't even think The Selected President is on the subject anymore. He swaggers to the podium every chance he gets, leans that left shoulder on it and acts like he is talking to a room full of buddies at an AA Meeting. He troubles me a lot! I am not kidding, folks! Personally, I think they are going to try to blame everything on the one person who really even hints at what they think is the "other terrorist" (No Bush Speak) Sorry! If allowed, maybe he can give us some idea of what really happened...but, as usual, it will likely be covered up like every other thing has in this administration. I wonder if he could possibly produce a navy blue dress...........nah, no such luck! Only, the best president of the US would be investigated for 8-10 years over a failed land deal and A few women who wanted to make money on his name. I will give Monica that, she hasn't done that yet, not like her "friend" Linda! Keep buzzin......
[BuzzFlash Note: Not to diminish whatever feelings Monica may have for our last elected President, but the previous owner of the stained blue dress has done quite plenty to cash in on her infamy. As Stephen Colbert satirically mused on The Daily Show's review of a recent Lewinsky television appearance (paraphrasing): "If there's one sure way to tell the whole world that you want to be left alone, it's by doing a HBO Special."]
no, ms. harris! You've got it all wrong
You must see about having your hearing checked: Democrats do not "respect" you, they SUSPECT you!
one noticed that on Earth Day Mother Nature told us exactly what the Bush
program is for air pollution -- A Snow Job (see news videos of Bush in
[BuzzFlash Note: You should read Dana Milbank's story of the press junket: Mother Earth 1, Bush 0. It reads like a remake of "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World."]
The Tina Brown Talk Magazine demise was no coincidence.
Bush and his cronies threatened anyone that supported the paper after she featured a fake depiction of the Bush drunks. More recently, Bush is on the attack of Oprah, O magazine, and the Oxygen channel, O has been "noted in the building." (There were articles today about how bad the O brand is doing lately.) Because she refused to be a party of this web of deception (mind you they would not guarantee her safety), Bush is set on making her "pay." I believe Oprah stopped the book club because she got word of an upcoming Republican backlash.
Just think this twit has more time to fight petty wars of those that do not support him while the Anthrax killer goes free, Osama's whereabouts change daily, the Mideast is in flames, more and more nations trying to distance themselves from us, and America is in a forever state of Yellow.
Why people aren't crying themselves asleep is beyond me..
Is there nothing that can be done to remind the "Powers that Be" that only Congress can declare war? It's about time to get the media to understand that persistently telling the public that we're at war, as in the following, is misinforming the public:

I read where President Clinton (last legitimate President) offered to go to the Mideast to help with peace making.....SUPER IDEA.
Let the BIG DOG go, and let Bush stay at home on the porch with the puppies!!!!!
President General Musharref of Pakistan is taking all the queues from the Bush Administration and RNC concerning the democratic process.
These noted items appeared in world newspapers:
This is democracy as we now know it.
The quote you ought to highlight from the WashPost article whose link is now at the top of your page is this:
And if not?

though Nancy was surfing the TV and stopped momentarily to see if Faux
was running true to form, the (FFF) Faux Fallacy Forces took it as watching
their tripe. But back to the one-liners. When you can't address the points
an individual makes, throw in a one-liner... it's as old as the hills.
Since the name Ailes is on the correspondence, I suggest that we begin
to refer to the writer as, "Roger the Dodger?"
Here's a letter I sent to the Washington Post in response to their editorial entitled Clearing the Air, which appeared Tuesday, April 23, 2002 at
Bush was uncomfortable with being in the same room as Castro and Castro was asked to leave. <long ponderous silent pause>......the leader of the free world was AFRAID of BEING IN THE SAME ROOM AS CASTRO.....I have nothing more to add.
God save us all..
The Washington Post keeps saying that Bush's numbers are largely unchanged because he is at 78% but in their own poll the "strong" support for him has gone from 76% in October to 47% now (the rest is "somewhat" approve) and they would not even comment on that! A 30% slippage in strong support in 6 mos is not such a small thing!
Please write an editorial about that -- it needs to see the light of day. These are significant numbers and they are hidden in the overall approvals, half of which now are but lukewarm!
Hmm, Ralph Reed? The Ralph Reed who worked at Enron?
well, as the hypocrites like to say, "that was only business."
As if that's different, eh.
A BuzzFlash Letter to Katherine Harris:
Click here: ABCNEWS.com: Harris Touts Bipartisan Respect
I am a Democrat. Most of my friends are Democrats or Independents -- a few are Republicans. But we ALL agree that we have less respect for you than for most other common thieves or criminals. Your crimes were of much greater consequence to our country.
Your complicity in the 2000 election fraud should make you ineligible to vote, let alone run for public office! When the history books are written, your only claim to fame (infamy) will be your unlawful and shameful behavior as Florida's Secretary of State, in corrupting our once democratic custom of holding fair and honest elections.
Your absolutely unbelievable arrogance in having any political ambitions at all, after being intimately involved in one of the most disgraceful chapters in our history, is a sad joke to most Americans who still believe in Democracy.
The mainstream media suggests that you're election is a "sure thing" in your hugely Republican district, but I nevertheless wonder how those Republican voters really feel about having someone with your lack of integrity and obvious contempt for the law representing their interests? I suspect you're not quite the sure thing we're being led to believe.
