I just hope they decide they've given New York enough grief already

Some people have argued that although Bush is not a perfect president, what with being the worst president America has ever had and all, we still need to re-elect him because he's doing such a bang-up job fighting the war on terrorism. This makes me want to stomp around and smash things. But apparently now I will have a book I can refer people to when they try to make this argument to me.

I think we have to be prepared for the political fallout from another terrorist attack on the US right before the election. There will be a lot of calls to fall in line behind the president, as there was after 9/11. Democrats need a spine in general. I'm not convinced Americans will respond as Spaniards did following their tragedy by kicking out the people in office.
