Is it rude to note
I’m not the only one who has grown tired of vague, threatening lectures from government officials on “looming” terror threats, such as this one, spouted yesterday:
Officials Warn of Future Terror Attacks
By KATHERINE SHRADER

WASHINGTON (AP) – Speaking with one voice, President Bush’s top intelligence and military officials said Wednesday that terrorists are regrouping for possible new strikes against the United States.
They said the best defense was for Congress to approve the president’s military and anti-terror budget. But some in Congress, including prominent Republicans, were questioning some of that spending.</i>
Ok, why the dog and pony show? We have a Republican-controlled Congress who would rubberstamp anything our divine “leader” might toss them, so no need to strong arm those folks. Nope, this is purely a distracting action, to keep us from noticing:
1: Our guy didn’t win in Iraq
2: A gay prostitute was installed in the White House press corps under false pretenses
3: Bush’s approval ratings are heading steadly downward.
Just a thought.
