This past month, the United States Senate passed the Project BioShield Act of 2004 by a vote of 99-0 with one Senator not voting. Guess who it was. The same dolt who has now taken it upon himself to criticize the Administration for not doing enough to prepare for a major biological weapons strike on America. But such is the aim of this Act ---comprehensive and responsible.
Am I missing something here? Kerry's got balls to play politics with the war and with the safety of the American people.
But Kerry's real hope is this (and it's also that of the anti-Bush crowd in general): ratchet up all the talk about the failings of homeland security. Talk up the possibilities of a strike to come soon. Try to make it look like we haven't greatly improved our security. And, if it turns out that the cheap prognostication of a terrorist attack is proved correct, Frankenkerry can stand back like Laocoon and say he told us so.
It's fucking pathetic that a man's ambitions depend upon such hopes.
