Is it too soon to start talking about the "October Surprise" that Bush has in store for this election year?  Should we start a betting pool on it?

I wonder if they will "capture" Osama bin Laden and parade him around just a few weeks before the election?

(After all, the "found" Saddam just when the Halliburton fiasco was starting to heat up.  It effectively moved Halliburton off the front pages for two weeks.)

Are there any other possible surprises? :devil:

I guess I didn't realize that Halliburton's presence waxed and waned like phases of the moon. That silly word has been dogging Cheney since he got elected. (Of course, it would be bad form to point out that Clinton gave Halliburton a sweet deal in post-war Kosovo, wouldn't it?)  :devil:

No it wouldn't be bad form at all!  Most corporations don't have any political affiliations, they just want the money.  Hmm...that could be an interesting October Surprise.  Yet another Clinton indictment... :lol:  :hehe:  :ninjadeath:

That gets my vote, too (and it makes me feel like a terrible cynic to say it, but look what Dubya's reduced me to  :wacko: ).
