Harold Ford Jr has by all accounts been running a smashing campaign, well aware of the position of his potential constituency and quick thinking. For example, when the news of the liquid bomb terrorist plot hit he was sitting on an airplane holding a bottle of Gatorade. But . . . what ever happened to that alleged terrorist threat?
James Petras has a very interesting analysis of the mass arrests, and suggests why we haven’t heard a whole lot about that plot since the first wave of media saturation. His conclusion should be pretty obvious by now if you’ve been paying attention at all to the Bush/Blair modus op.
They faked a punch and we flinched. Rove and the boys know that he can Chicken Little us anytime he wants. Let’s see what happens in October.
