Everyone knows it's coming.
Rove doesn't deviate from his playbook; and it's his third time around with this one.
So what's going to be the terrorist fright just before the election? Will Osama be taken out of deep freeze? Will a videotape suddenly be "found" in which Osama declares that he wants a Democratic Congress? Will a terrorist cell be broken up the week before the election, allegedly plotting to fly planes into 12 American cities and bomb the Super Bowl with Weapons of Mass Destruction that Saddam gave them from his cell in Iraq?
Who knows exactly what it will be, but we know it will be some extraordinary fright fest.
The only fuel the GOP has left to run on is fear, otherwise their car will sputter to a stop on a country road with no gasoline station in sight.
So the Dems know they are going to get another round of terrorist scares -- and this one is going to be quite imaginative, you can be sure.
The question is: Who, if anyone, in the Democratic Party is thinking how to pre-empt the upcoming Rovian plan to terrorize America into voting Republican (for the third campaign cycle of voting by fear)?
Because if we go through another election where the Dems act all shocked when Rove pulls the same bogeyman stunt all over again, the Dems will lose.
Have they learned by now that the Busheviks will do anything, even if it jeopardizes national security, to play the terror card?
If not, America will be left with a one-party government once again -- and Bush will be emboldened, in the absence of any checks and balances, to nuke Iran and cause further chaos in Iraq. Not to mention that the White House will further shred the Constitution and move quickly to consolidate more dictatorial powers.
The Dems better get on the stick and prepare for the October surprise now, because it's coming down the pike.
And there are no excuses this time for claiming that they didn't see it coming.
