Terror Alerts: Coinciding with bad Bush news or good Kerry news?
Is there a website that tracks the dates of the "terror alerts" that have been issued this year?

And maybe also shows what types of news were reported in those timeframes and whether the news was good/bad for Bush?

4. I pick 1 from column A & 1 from column B.
There IS a direct correlation.

Just wonder what/when it will be after Friday Nite?

We should have a friendly wager.

I say by the end of the weekend - just in time for the Monday cycle.

Aides admit Bush stoking fears of terrorism for political gain
by John in DC - 10/7/2004 02:42:32 PM

UPDATE: I cannot believe this. The Bushies have just issued a terror warning about, you guessed it, Al Qaeda is coming to kill your kids in school. Gee, isn't it an amazing coincidence that the polls showed just a few weeks ago that "security moms" were freaked about the Russian school killings and that such security moms were more prone to vote for Bush because of the killings. And now we have the Bushies telling America's moms, out of the blue, once Bush's numbers are falling, that Al Qaeda is coming after your pre-schooler. No warning on this 7 WEEKS AGO WHEN THE KILLINGS ACTUALLY HAPPENED. No, the warning comes now, right before the election. These guys are scum.

Read this little tidbit buried in a front page Washington Post story today. According to Bush's aides, regarding the "big speech" he gave yesterday, "The strategy is aimed at stoking public fears about terrorism..."
