November Surprise

I guess it's only fair. The Democrats got the Foley scandal in the crucial weeks leading up to the mid-term elections, and it looks like Rove and the Republicans will get a verdict for Saddam Hussein on November 5th, just two days before election day.

Last time it was a new Osama bin Laden recording that urged the American people not to re-elect George Bush (the most priceless non-endorsement imaginable). Now that the GOP is doing everything it can to divert public attention away from bin Laden and accentuate the "successes" of the Iraq War, what news could be more favorable than a guilty verdict being read to Saddam Hussein and his crew?

Expect a media orgy.
