I stand corrected

In a blog entry below, I tried to give Scott McClellan the benefit of the doubt when it came to the potential for cancelling the November elections. I was wrong, as this article from Newsweek points out. Now realize this--Isikoff is a tool for the Bushies and is trying to make the possibility of cancelling the elections palatable (the bullshit phrase used is "the success of March's Madrid railway bombings in influencing the Spanish elections"), but the underlying premise is damn disturbing.

American counterterrorism officials, citing what they call "alarming" intelligence about a possible Qaeda strike inside the United States this fall, are reviewing a proposal that could allow for the postponement of the November presidential election in the event of such an attack, NEWSWEEK has learned.

Get on the horn to your congresspersons now--no postponement under any circumstances. Nuclear missiles can be flying overhead and no postponement. Anthrax in the streets and no postponement. Britney Spears, Madonna, and the Queen of England having lesbian sex on pay-per-view and no postponement. Under no circumstances can we allow these people to postpone the November election--if they do, we may never have another chance to vote again.
