Tinfoil hats make democracy work

blackthornglade pointed out a gleeful headline:
U.S. Mulling How to Delay Nov. Vote in Case of Attack.

Now, I don't want to sound like a paranoind tinfoilhat wearing nutjob... but that's just plain fucking scary. A terrorist attack (whether an honest one, or one staged by a manipulative US government) appropriately timed could completely dismantle the democratic process. And half of this country will be screaming for Bush's blood, and the other half screaming for Osama's.

Then again, there's another problem- Bush keeps telling us that we won't let terror tell us how to live our lives. We won't let it disrupt our nation (except when fearmongering creates votes).
