Terror Alert Doubters are Un-American

Why beat around the bush, so to speak. If you think the Administration invented the terror alert for 5 buildings in order to boost the President’s re-election chances, you are un-American.

Bob Holden's Era A Short One

Okay, I know I’m risking looking like an idiot, but I’ll predict (with 16% of the precincts reporting) that Claire McCaskill will win the Democrat Gubernatorial primary in Missouri, defeating a failed, one-term governor who won primarily because his predecessor died a month before the election.

Ridge: Al Qaeda Will Attempt To Disrupt Elections

9/11 Commission finds Iraq-Al Qaeda Link
