shudder

I have never been a big fan of tinfoil as a fashion accessory. And yet, I can't deny it... this is pretty much every liberal's worst nightmare.

Will the 2004 Election Be Called Off?

I have a few reasons to believe that while this fear is understandable, it's also unfounded. Hardcore conspiracy theorists assumed that WMD would be found in Iraq, even if the Marines had to truck them in themselves. So far this hasn't happened. They seemed certain that Osama B. was already in custody, ready to be trotted out in October... and okay, this could theoretically still be true, but there's substantial evidence that the guy's just holed up in Pakistan. And at the end of the day -- call me naive, call me gullible (both are often true) -- life just has a funny way of continuing more-or-less normally despite everyone's worst fears.

But if you want to freak out your liberal friends and loved ones, show 'em that article and watch 'em blanch.
