Take Your Pick
What's your flavor?
I'll choose Reuters for 100.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. intelligence and law enforcement officials said on Saturday they have found no direct evidence of plans for a terror attack tied to the upcoming U.S. election.No, the Bushies are the ones continuing to intimidate and terrify us.
There were abundant indications of desire by terror groups like al Qaeda to launch an attack on U.S. soil, but no plot had been discovered on a specific target or date, they said.
Mr. Bush returned to the theme of terrorism during a campaign stop here in Fort Myers on Saturday, roaring into a rally in a procession of machine-gun-toting helicopters escorting Marine One as it settled, in a swirl of wind, in the middle of a field. It was a display of the power of incumbency and a reminder of a dominant theme of Mr. Bush's campaign. On television stations here this week, it was all terrorism all the time: images of the smoldering World Trade Center and Republican claims that Mr. Kerry would be weak in the face of terrorist threats.He should be ashamed.
Good evening, friends. Just now back from a full, event-filled day in Milwaukee. Drove 2 other volunteers. One, Joe, entertained the car with chilling readings from this morning's New York Times about efforts of the Bush/Cheney people to stuff every Ohio Dem stronghold with paid bullies bent on intimidating and questioning each voter.
So, Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan, Florida, Iowa: do like everyone else: Vote Early, and Vote Carefully. Make sure those chads aren't dimpled, hanging, or swinging from the rafters. If you're supposed to use a pencil to draw your arrows, don't rebel and use a pen. Or vice-versa. If you vote in person, if you ruin a ballot, you can get another one, then double and triple check. Bring ID to the polls, a lot of it. Don't let them get away with it.
Back later with more chilling Tales from the Front.
