The Bush administration is so worried that Al Qaeda will try to affect the November election that... they're going to give Al Qaeda an actual, concrete way to affect the election.

U.S. Mulling How to Delay Nov Vote in Case of Attack

Newsweek cited unnamed sources who told it that the Department of Homeland Security asked the Justice Department last week to review what legal steps would be needed to delay the vote if an attack occurred on the day before or on election day.

Does anyone really think that Al Qaeda cares about the outcome of the election--that murderous religious fundamentalists really see a difference between Bush and Kerry? Meanwhile, the potential for abuse in giving the executive branch power to delay elections is immense.


Okay I find all of this really scary.
