Terrorist Plot Foiled

It seems likely that if the news of today's foiled terrorist play had come out on Tuesday, Lieberman would have stomped Ned Lamont in his primary battle. Americans quickly forget about the war we are fighting and have to be constantly reminded.

One more thing about Lieberman... I am no big fan. Lieberman is pretty liberal except for his stance on WOT. Nevertheless, his defeat is a bad oman. It is a tragedy when the other side ceases even to have the same ulitimate goal. If you recall the Kennedy/Nixon debate, Kennedy pointed out that he and Nixon had the same goals in minds only different methods in achieving them.

Today, with some parts of the democratic party, this is no longer true.

Interesting that the stock market is up today. Supposedly that's because of earnings reports and DESPITE the failed terror plot. I say investors are feeling confident because we are actually stopping the attacks.

I'm impressed that these wayward students from Egypt are actually being sought and arrested. That doesn't sound very sensitive.
