Sunday, Bloody Sunday?

A friend of mine brought an interesting point during a conversation this evening.
He said that the outcome of the Spanish election was directly affected by the terror
attacks there. He thinks the same may happen here if Bush is strongly leading in
polls close to the election. Maybe I’ve just had my head in the sand (or perhaps
the clouds), but I hadn’t thought of that scenario. Will our country be rocked by
a major terrorist attack during the weekend prior to the presidential election?

Read these stories and drop me a line. I have no firm opinion or agenda related
to this topic. I’m curious to hear any serious commentary and discussion.

    I’d hate to think we (as a voting populace) would vote in fear, thus removing Bush just to appease a terrorist threat. But I suppose it could happen; I only hope that in the face of the worst that could happen, whoever wins in November won’t allow any terrorists the satisfaction of feeling any ultimate sense of victory.
    That said, even allowing for the worst, we should all pray for the best.

    I’ve heard talk of delaying the election–I don’t know how serious that is, and would think it’s a long way from getting even close to serious consideration–and find even that a dangerous concession to terrorists. Even that much gives them power over us, and I’d rather not encourage a sleeper cell to make a “vote” for the Kerry ticket!

    Pretty encouraging Kerry didn’t shred at the White House. Dashole has even said this recent briefing is so serious he doubts it’s politicised. Here’s hoping the Dems can take the War on Terror seriously.
