Dave Lindorff: Wake-Up Call

I'm looking out my window here in southeastern Pennsylvania at a wild cherry tree that, on November 28, is still covered in green leaves. A butterfly bush nearer to the house is still blooming. We have yet to have a "killing" frost this year in this part of Pennsylvania, though just five years ago and earlier, such frosts were the rule by mid-October, and sometimes even came at the end of September.

From 1994-1997, I drew daily cartoons for Laugh Lines, the L.A. Times' humor page. I also wrote topical jokes every day. Since the WGA is now on strike, there will be no new shows from the likes of Jay Leno, David Letterman, Conan O' Brien, Jon Stewart, and Stephen Colbert. Since they've cornered the late-night market, I've decided to stake out a different time of day to call my own.

You can excuse BuzzFlash for being confused sometimes as to what militias in Iraq the Bush Administration is currently backing. After all, Bush reportedly didn’t even know there was a difference between Shiites and Sunnis until well after the Iraq War started, so cut us some slack.

We do know this, as we read about new killings in Iraq, we just have to wonder which death squads the White House is arming and aiding.

Jeff Fleischer: Howard the (Lame) Duck

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Jeff Fleischer

The world stage just keeps getting lonelier for President Bush.

In the acceptance speech at the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York City, Bush took a break from criticizing John Kerry's vote on the infamous $87 billion in invasion funding to criticize the senator for calling Bush's "coalition of the willing" a "coalition of the coerced and the bribed."

From 1994-1997, I drew daily cartoons for Laugh Lines, the L.A. Times' humor page. I also wrote topical jokes every day. Since the WGA is now on strike, there will be no new shows from the likes of Jay Leno, David Letterman, Conan O' Brien, Jon Stewart, and Stephen Colbert.

Well, Al Gore finally got to visit the house that the American people gave him the lease to in 2000, before Nino Scalia and the other felonious four pulled the rent agreement out of his hand, whited out Gore's name, and wrote in George W. Bush.

For a long time after the theft of the election in 2000, we referred to President Al Gore, and Bush as the selected, not elected, president.
