Before We Jump for Joy Too Long, Sour Grapes Proclaims the October Surprise Has Stealthily Occurred amid Our Euphoria (written in haste during my lunch break)

     Here is the network/structure of what I can see happening before November 4. First of all, why did McCain, in the midst of low polls and boos against his bimbo, say we are us where he wants us to be, splashing around in euphoria that Barack will probably win(?) so that we don't realize that the October Surprise has lethally occurred behind our backs. The surprise is composed of Bush's renewal of diplomacy with N. Korea, taking it off the axis of evil list. We have also been economic marionettes of Rove's manipulation of the economy, which, here in the midst of October, is suddenly, seemingly on the mend having claimed lives and destinies of precisely the people Obama resonates to, those who are going to vote for him en masse.

Right now, says this prophet of doom, Bush emerges as a functional socialist, nationalizing banks a la Hugo Chavez--huelga, Bush, Che Bush!!


They'll stand together for cheers by the end of October, planning what will happen after the McCain victory: amassing the National Guards, bringing them back from Iraq to the cheers of us lib'rals, and so on.

My scenario, prophet of doom, optimist though I try to be.


Maybe the voting machines will work this time because so many of us have been taken off of the voter rolls that it won't matter if the machines work or not.

Then we'll take to the streets and the National Guard will be all prepared with riot gear purchased with taxpayer money.

Hope I'm wrong and don't seem like too much of a left-wing ranter.
