Quote du Jour
Obviously, he?ll be caught between now and the election. -- Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa)

It has already been suggested that Karl Rove has the announcement of Osama bin Laden's capture planned for some propitious moment in the campaign. Some are suggesting July 4 or September 11. The facts could be that he was killed two years ago, that he is already captured, or that they won't ever capture him. None of these will stop the Bushies from claiming his capture before the election, as Grassley apparently knows. Surely there are a few Repugs who know how to use PhotoShop.

One thing I think Rove has seriously screwed up on in his evil plan is the extended non-mentioning of Osama. When they do finally announce his capture, 50% of Americans will say "Who's that?", 40% will say "Didn't we find him in a hole back in December?", and those of you who read this blog regularly will say "Yeah, right." The networks will have to run nonstop videos of 9/11 to remind the masses who this guy is (or is supposed to be).
