I'm sure that I'm just being paranoid (Part 2)...

I went camping and geocaching
with my family for three days this past weekend, and returned last night to find that the Bush Regime is exploring ways
to derail --oops, I mean delay
-- the election in the event of a terrorist attack.
Now since the Bush Regime's militaristic approach to geopolitics is Osama Bin Laden's best recruiting tool, I gotta think that OBL will definitely do his best to strike us at a time that derails the elections.
Right off the bat, this has two immediate benefits from OBL's point of view:
1. It keeps Bush in office, where he'll surely lash out in some ill-considered, reactionary way that will again increase outrage in the Muslim world --thereby swelling Al Qaeda's ranks.
2. It increases OBL's standing in the Muslim world because he has "derailed democracy" in America.
Coincidentally, it has two immediate benefits from the Bush Regime's point of view:
1. It keeps Bush in office, where he can strike back at the terrorist menace and increase his approval ratings --thereby swelling the ranks of Bush supporters at the polling booth.
2. It increases Bush's standing in this country, because he's "defending democracy" in America.
As unthinkable as it sounds, it's almost as if Bush and OBL are using each other to further their own careers. I'm actually having a hard time drawing any other plausible conclusion. But no, that can't be --no elected official in my country would even consider utilizing a terrorist sociopath to manipulate an election. Once again, I'm just being paranoid. Right? Right?
