But don't question his patriotism!

Russell Shaw on the Puffington Host incredibly blogs that, while he doesn't want another terrorist attack, he sees a silver lining in a possible attack: it might help the Democrats!

If an attack occurred just before the elections, I have to think that at least a few of the voters who persist in this "Bush has kept us safe" thinking would realize the fallacy they have been under.

If 5% of the "he's kept us safe" revise their thinking enough to vote Democrat, well, then, the Dems could recapture the House and the Senate and be in a position to:

[Save women from back-alley abortions! Enact a health care rationing scheme! Repeal the Second Amendment! Eliminate some minimum wage jobs in order to give other minmum wage earners a raise! Etc!]

Not so much notable for the sentiment, which is red meat among the Angry Left, but in his willingness to say it out loud where the otherwise sane might hear him. Of course if some righty pundit or blogger suggested that he thought this way they would be branded a hate monger. As I have said before, you can't parody these guys anymore.

UPDATE 8/26/06: A thorough point by point fisking by Caerdroia. Absolutely a must read.
