Timing is Everything
News reports indicate that the House Ethics Committee will not issue its findings, or even an interim memo, on the Foley scandal until after the November 7 election.
Likewise, James "I stole Florida for George Bush" Baker's Iraq Study Group will not announce its Iraq War recommendations, which are expected to contain significant strategic changes, until after the elections, even though those recommendations, if implemented now, could save American soldiers' lives.
Meanwhile, the verdicts against Saddam Hussein, which are expected to be "guilty" on some if not all charges, are to be announced two days before the election.
Hmm, bad news for Bush and the Republicans gets held until after Election Day, and good news is released just prior to Election Day. Aren't October and pre-election November just full of amazing coincidences?
