GOP wishes for another 9/11

Be afraid, be very afraid. Capitol Hill Blue has unearthed a highly confidential GOP memo suggesting that "a new attack by terrorists on U.S. soil could reverse the sagging fortunes of President George W. Bush as well as the GOP and 'restore his image as a leader of the American people.'"
The closely-guarded memo lays out a list of scenarios to bring the Republican party back from the political brink, including a devastating attack by terrorists that could “validate” the President’s war on terror and allow Bush to “unite the country” in a “time of national shock and sorrow.”

The memo outlines other scenarios, including:

--Capture of Osama bin Laden (or proof that he is dead);
--A drastic turnaround in the economy;
--A "successful resolution" of the Iraq war.

GOP memos no longer talk of “victory” in Iraq but use the term “successful resolution.”

“A successful resolution would be us getting out intact and civil war not breaking out until after the midterm elections,” says one insider.
The GOP is in chaos after their trouncing at the polls last week and their desperation is palpable. One can't fail to remember Bush was tanking in the polls when 9/11 saved him. Fortunately, the GOP powerbrokers realize it could backfire and the saner members see the connection between the fringenuts and the downfall of the party.
As Republican political strategists scramble to find a message – any message – that will ring true with voters, GOP leaders in Congress admit privately that control of their party by right-wing extremists makes their recovery all but impossible.
Nonetheless, you might want to avoid public transportation for a while - just in case.

Maybe Cheney/Bush/Rove can tap into their rich Middle East oil pals' networks and hire out another 9/11. Frankly, I've thought they probably set up the first one as well; they maybe couldn't do it themselves, but those outsourced, talented "terrorists" were such a bargain! Kind of like India's brilliant software engineers...
