Funny with all the talk of phantom terrorist connections (Bill Ayers) from decades ago, the actual, real terrorists prefer McCain. Whose side will you be on?:

Let's not forget McCain's support for terrorists (http://www.juancole.com/2008/10/mccain-campaign-no-1-at-self-parody.html).

Thanks for the link -- good article.

There's just no question that Osama bin Laden wanted Bush to remain in office, having seen what a spectacular failure he was and the damage he was doing to America.

From the article:

Even more likely is the possibility that al Qaeda would hope the attack would benefit John McCain. Opinion polls, which, as noted above, al Qaeda reads closely, suggest that an attack would help McCain. Polls in Europe and the Middle East also suggest an overwhelming popular support there for Barack Obama. Al Qaeda would not like it if there were a popular American president again.

... no one seems to be overly bothered by McCain's past associations. E.g. (http://yglesias.thinkprogress.org/archives/2008/10/mccain_and_g_gordon_liddy.php) E.g.

G. Gordon Liddy.

I've been mentioning lately the concern about how conservatives will react if Obama is elected, and citing conservatives' history of advocating violent resistence to Democratic government. Liddy is a perfect example. During the 1990s, at the peak of the growth of the right-wing militia movement, Liddy dispensed advice on killing federal agents (http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=1313) and, according to FAIR, described "the Clinton administration as an evil that needed to be resisted with deadly force."

These people really are dangerous, and McCain / Palin are directly fueling this fire.
