A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL
Okay, let’s look at some Bushevik assaults on democracy this last week:

With Bush Republicans, charity begins and ends at home . . . their home. Have Americans noticed that when Republicans talk about bootstraps, this country becomes strapped with debt, death, and destruction?
