Speaking of October Surprises...perhaps it'll be our very own C I A who, in the end, hoses the Rove slime machine and sends the Texas Chihuahua home to Crawford:
A powerful "old guard" faction in the Central Intelligence Agency has launched an unprecedented campaign to undermine the Bush administration with a battery of damaging leaks and briefings about Iraq.

The White House is incensed by the increasingly public sniping from some senior intelligence officers who, it believes, are conducting a partisan operation to swing the election on November 2 in favour of John Kerry, the Democratic candidate, and against George W Bush.

Jim Pavitt, a 31-year CIA veteran who retired as a departmental chief in August, said that he cannot recall a time of such "viciousness and vindictiveness" in a battle between the White House and the agency.

John Roberts, a conservative security analyst, commented bluntly: "When the President cannot trust his own CIA, the nation faces dire consequences."

Right. Something about a certain PDB comes to mind...

I'm back!!!! I had to do the "system restore" thing to get back on the blog. Windows sent me an update that fucked up my computer. I didn't see Friday's debate. I taped it but haven't yet watched it. Bush sounds more hysterical every day. Maybe he'll blow a gasket and his head will explode-on TV!!
