Yahoo! News - Homeland Security Agents Visit Toy Store

I wonder if they're coming after my mp3 player next? Buying knock-off merchandise is so letting the terrorists win. On the other hand, so is letting them go and giving them 380 tons of high explosives.

Terrorists hope to defeat Bush through Iraq violence - The Washington Times: World - October 27, 2004

The most pro-Kerry, he said, are the former Saddam Hussein loyalists — Ba'ath Party members and others who think Washington might scale back its ambitions for Iraq if Mr. Kerry wins, allowing them to re-enter civic life.
The most pro-Bush, he said, are the foreign extremists. "They prefer Bush, because he's a provocative figure, and the more they can push people to the extreme, the better for their case."

Read that a few times.

As I read it, the Washington Times is saying that the Islamic Extremists (Al Qaeda, Zaquawi, etc.) are pro-Bush.

The real Iraqis, non-terrorist resistance fighters who want to go back to living a regular life in peace, support Kerry.

So a Kerry presidency, according to terrorists, would hurt the terrorists' recruiting efforts....

ABC News: Bush: Several States Could Swing Election:

"'I wouldn't discount Michigan,' Bush says. 'I wouldn't discount the influence of Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota and New Mexico."

He almost sounds like Howard Dean after he lost Iowa. The wave might be breaking.....
Talking Points Memo: by Joshua Micah Marshall: October 24, 2004 - October 30, 2004 Archives

Apparently the explosives being used for roadside bombs in Iraq was under IAEA lock and key, "sealed," before the US invasion. But soon after the invasion 350 TONS of high explosives were carted off for use by the insurgency, and, although the Department of Defense has known all along that this stuff was missing, is hasn't told anyone, because of the political implications. Click above for more.
Candidates Hit Key States With Election Still a Tossup (

GOP officials who talked to Bush-Cheney campaign leaders said the leaders had grown more worried about Ohio, Florida and other key states where Bush lacks a lead with just 10 days until the election. A poll by Ohio University's Scripps Survey Research Center, completed Thursday night, found Kerry leading 49 to 43 percent among registered voters, with a margin of error of five percentage points.

Sen. Pete V. Domenici (R-N.M.), campaigning with Vice President Cheney in northwestern New Mexico, told the crowd the GOP ticket will lose the state without a lopsided local victory in San Juan County, because of heavy Democratic activity elsewhere in the state. "Without a huge margin in this county . . . we can't win this election," he said.

One Republican official described the mood at the top of the campaign as apprehensive. " 'Grim' is too strong," the official said. "If we feel this way a week from now, that will be grim."
That Republican official said polling for Bush showed him in a weaker position than some published polls, both nationally and in battlegrounds. In many of the key states, the official said, Bush is below 50 percent, and he is ahead or behind within the margin of sampling error -- a statistical tie.

"There's just no place where they're polling outside the margin of error so they can say, 'We have this state,' " the official said. "And they know that an incumbent needs to be outside the margin of error."
