15 days folks

Today was the day I had pegged as a good day for an October Surprise. But, I guess I was wrong. I still think an October Surprise is likely (as I wrote about here. Either Bin Laden will be dragged out, or the one I fear most would some kind of terrorist attack or one that seems to have been prevented or stopped. Actually, now I am kind of leaning away from the October Surprise and towards just a huge, drawn out election fiasco. I'll stay up election night to watch the returns come in but I would be surprised if we actually knew who won at the end of the night. There are already voting problems in Florida's pre-voting today. So, I think the fight will come afterwards. And I just hope the democrats are prepared for a fight. Let me just say, I believe if the election were honest (and I have little/no faith of that) that Kerry would win by a landslide. So, the news tonight is focused on Bush as a religious zealot. Jeez, are they just figuring that out now? Well, I think it is wonderful that they are airing Bush's evangelical beliefs because it will turn off moderate voter. At least I hope it does. I've read and heard some great political commentary in the past couple days about this (including the piece in this past Sunday's NYTimes Magazine). Basically, it seems that the reason why Bush doesn't feel his actions or ideologies need explaining is because they are unexplainable as they are rooted in religious doctrine and the fact the Bush feels that god has ordained him to rule right now. This appeals to a very small number of folks in this country so the more the media makes of it the better.
