With a message/plan/creed that doesn't go much beyond "I Hate Bush", it's just like a liberal to pull out the old "they'll probably find bin laden right before the elections" line:
As some of my previous posts make clear, I don't hold with major 9/11-was-an-inside-job conspiracy theories, but I think the possibility that they will "find" Osama before the election is real. Deceptions of that kind are par for the course for these champions of moral clarity. Plus, even more importantly, it is logistically feasible.
But here's the thing. Their credibility is now so damaged that it might backfire--especially if Democrats were to be smart about it. Candidates should confine themselves to solemn head shaking and comments like "All I can say is that this is very convenient timing." Bloggers will take care of the rest.
Come to think about it, the possibility of backfire is so real that if, just by chance, just by accident, they were to locate bin Laden in the next couple of weeks they might be well advised to keep him on ice until after the election.
But wait, didn't liberals make the same claims about Bush "finding Bin laden" right before the 2004 elections? Yet, despite not being able to pull off that great stunt, Bush won the presidency anyway. Of course anyone desperate enough to borrow a line from the likes of Crazy Teresa Heinz needs to have his head examined at the very least.
