Update – Conservative writes that an attack on the US “wouldn’t be all bad news since people would start supporting the War in Iraq again.” He continues,
Another terrorist attack, terrible as that would be, would not just reverse the war’s bad poll numbers, it would also help the President.
[…] But just any terrorist attack will not suffice. It’s going to take a really big one.
Oops, a faux-conservative parady blog, not a real conservative. Heh.
Avedon at Eschaton writes,
Shouldn’t it concern us that Republicans are constantly talking about how people will all wise up when the next terrorist attack at home comes?
I mean, they really seem to be looking forward to it, and they take great delight in the thought that, by God, people will see things differently when it happens.
They relish the thought. They hunger for that terrorist attack they need to save their Party.
I, Not Atrios, think Democrats would be wise to talk on TV about how the last thing we need is to put people in power who have such a stake in having terrorists attack Americans.
