Mass Hysteria

Be afraid, be very afraid, and vote for the party of fear.

Well, Karl should be thrilled as his plan to use fear to win an election is moving right along: Flight diverted to Boston over passenger disturbance

The federal security official for Logan said there was no indication of terrorism and denied reports that the woman had a screw driver, matches and a note referring to al-Qaeda.

The passenger aboard United Flight 923 said she was claustrophobic and became very upset and got into some kind of confrontation with the flight crew, said George Naccara, security director for the Transportation Security Administration for Massachusetts’ airport.

Rumors are reported as facts. Money is wasted on false alarms.

This is a “terror” campaign orchestrated from the White House. The whole network of al Qaeda Inc. knows it doesn’t have to do anything: Karl Rove will generate all of the “terror” necessary until after the election, so there’s no need to do anything except issue a few “press releases.”

I’m sure everyone has noticed that the Crayons come out at election time. We can’t be at yellow alert if there are important primaries.

Update: See August’s latest cartoon.

We’re having a bomb scare here in Seattle right now. About half of the port of Seattle has been closed down because the bomb dogs didn’t like the smell of a container. The news does have me a little adrenalized, but not enough to feel like voting Republican.

I’m absolutely amazed that they actually have checks in place in the port of Seattle that would notice. That’s the best news I’ve heard in a long time regarding security.

Re: August’s cartoon… that Dr. Seuss hat ban will apply uniformly, to dead German mathematicians as well as living German authors. What’s Seuss for the Gauss is Seuss for the Günter…

Somewhere I saw another cartoon showing a guy in a turban sitting in a cave looking at an ad for Snakes On A Plane.

I’d rather be dis-Güntered than de-Gaussed.
