I will preface by stating as individuals we should all error on the side of caution, but Christ...
Timing is everything, and this is a wee bit too precise. I can't be the only one that smells the stench of turd blossom in the air. With the CIA leak indictments to be handed out any day now, numerous indictments for Tom DeLay and soon Bill Frist, the lowest approval ratings ever, growing dissent from the right concerning Harriet Miers's nomination, the quagmire otherwise known as Iraq, the federal deficit, our failing healthcare system, rampant cronyism and subsequent incompetence, the list goes on... Bushco has hit rock bottom. Red alert! Time to crank up the fear. The sheep are getting out of line.
Call me a cynic, but we have all been though this before. How ironic that this "Specific Threat" comes on the heels of today's War Is Peace speech. Hell, Tom Ridge has even admitted to being pressured to elevate the threat level based on "political" circumstances. I have to ask: How many coinkydinks will it take before a solid majority become hyper sensitive to seemingly unrelated events, and start connecting the dots?
But at any rate, New Yorkers be safe.
