21. Agreed. k&R Don't think it will help Bush.
I don't think this will help the Bushites. Even if they do somehow glean something off this, it does not mean that they planned this. But the nuts will use the "there is no such thing as a conspiracy" card.

As far as October surprise ideas, one who pays attention to current events can see there is one "surprise" about every month of the year. Many of them unplanned by the ruling elite of this country.

What will help bush is if he takes a really hardline (do we expect otherwise?) and Democrats come out in support of that, instead of offering real alternatives. dem leaders will hurt the dem party. Nothin' new.
