1. No, it's the FBI and Bush who is doing that. CNN just asked if it was real
or not.

8. Isn't that like asking "Do you still beat your wife?" Just asking the
question helps to raise the possibility, and scares the people. They are helping the BFEE terrorize the people.

2. You just had to know they were going to pull some crap like this
These people are so predictable. Every time Bush gets is ass in a crack, Rove shoots a big pile of shit out of his ass.

5. ABC news tonight
gave this a lot of play. Vargas had a guest to discuss the implications. Told my husband that Bush was down in the polls, so time for a terror alert.

9. I, for one, am THANKFUL that they are saying this!
It literally NEVER occurred to me that terrorists would try to attack a crowded building full of people

:sarcasm: <<<--- as if this was really needed

11. Bush's Latest Poll Numbers
LOWEST ever. Even 70% of REPUBLICANS now say Iraq is in a Civil War.

* is hoping a new terror alert will raise his numbers and salvage the disaster of his presidency.

14. What's new?
My son called me from Kauai the Friday of the big winds here in New York to see how I was. He said cnn told it like .."don't even bother calling your Mom..she's dead already"!

And, of course, that's what Michael Moore in "Bowling For Columbine" pointed out..the media in America is here to SCARE the BeJesus outta ya!

16. FBI said no credible threat.
The FBI said it is unaware of any specific or credible plans to attack any sporting event but notes that terrorist groups have mounted attacks at sporting events in the past.

Remember when Ashkkkroft frightened Boston shortly after 9/11? The FBI said there was no credible threat at that time, too.

24. Lots of places. That's part of what makes the idea so absurd.
Games are held at various places throughout the country. To hit them all at once would take more coordination than 9/11.

And here I was thinking "Boy, someone is really pissed it looks as if 'Cuse is going to get in after all..."

27. So is there going to be a war on the Easter Bunny too?
I feel like I am living in a theater of the absurd imagined by Kafka.

28. You can tell Rove is getting desperate
again--more of the "let's scare the shit out of them so they can't think straight" talk--it's mainly used as a distraction when things get a little tough.
