How shall I rob thee . . . let me count the ways . . .
Edited on Tue May-25-04 03:12 PM by OneBlueSky
BushCo is rapidly being backed into a very tight corner, but don't think for a minute that they won't pull out all the stops -- both legal and illegal -- to remain in office. I was thinking today about possibilities, i.e. what kinds of shit they're liable to pull between now an the election to ensure (they hope) a Republican victory in November. Here are four possibilities off the top of my head:

- the capture or killing of bin Laden
- another domestic terrorist attack
- releasing false and damaging accusations about John Kerry
- rigging voting machines in key districts in selected states

I'm sure there are many more; care to add to the list? . . .

on edit: added one item . . .

1. Bush could summon Cthulhu to lay waste to the world
Although Cthulhu might not like that Bush was muscling in on his turf.

2. Create another "imminent threat"--North Korea, Iran, ...
Some sort of international incident. Whip up the yahoos into another patriotic frenzy.

4. I think you already hit the main one
I think we'll see bin Laden caught or killed shortly before Election Day.
