October surprise better hurry!

If the Republicans really have an October surprise they had better hurry.  Here in Washington State Ballots can be mailed no later than October 20th and likely will be mailed around the 17th.  In other words, a goodly number of Washington votes will already be cast 21st or 22nd and likely 65-75% by the 30th(voters tend to fill out the ballots on the weekends).  If they want to influence Washington state voters and absentee voters everywhere in the country the clock is really ticking.  One week, maybe two to spring something(on us - too much to hope they will re-Foley themselves?).  SO keep fingers crossed, hold breath, and volunteer for your local GOTV drives. Remember, the last week in some places like Washington is NEXT week.

May have been North Korea

and the surprise fizzled.

Wasn't really a surprise

North Korea announced their intentions in advance. And somehow, I don't think Kim Jong Il consulted with Bush about it.

It may have been charging that guy with treason.

It fizzled too.

Can an event that demonstrates the ineptitude of one's policies be the surprise? Indeed, what does it mean to say "for NK to have nuclear weapons is unacceptable" when they just set one off? I honestly can't figure out what they are trying to do.

Rove could not pull off a surprise this time because of all the Republican indictments He has to watch his step with his illegal tricks.
