I Question the TimingIs the British So-Called Terror Plot a Karl Rove Plan?
You know, in order to help Joe Lieberman win the coming Senate race in Connecticut against Ned Lamont.
Because the timing is really suspicious.
Come on! You just know someone on Kos or the Democrat Underground website is thinking this.
UPDATE: Heh!! No sooner articulated than found.
Mary Katherine Ham has found precisely this theory already promulgated among the dhimmillati.
Lieberman loses, CODE RED, CODE RED, CODE RED
Bush just invoked a Code Red terrorist emergency, our first ever.
And isn't it queer that the emergency is declared within a day of Republican party leader Ken Mehlman launching an all-out offensive against Democrats following Joe Lieberman's loss in Connecticut, an offensive in which Mehlman, the White House and Republican operatives are claiming that Democrats no longer care about national security or the war on terror.
And just at that moment we get our FIRST ever red alert. Beam me up, Scotty.
Tom Maguire makes the same point:
A friend remarked to me that Karl Rove's reach is long indeed, if he can get the Brits to announce this a day after the Dems go with Lamont in Connecticut.
Though a commenter at Ace thinks that Rove bungled it, which is why news of it came a few days too late.
In more entertaining news, a UK Panel is being assembled to ask: Why Do They Hate Airplanes?
The expert panel will examine various theories about why airplanes engender such hatred among devoted followers of a peaceful religion.Of course, this is less funny, if you don't know that mere days ago, the highest-ranking Asian police officer claimed that Islamophobia is fuelling Islamic extremism. So - in an eternal catch 22 - the terrorism is caused by Britain's reaction to terrorism.
"Is it the horrendous noise? The speed? The condensation trails?" said one unnamed source close to the panel, listing some of the areas of inquiry the experts plan to pursue. "Because if it's any of those things, we can get to work on engineering changes to make airplanes more tolerable to our Muslim brothers."
