Normal MN Senator Closes Office

http://www.startribune.com/stories/587/5028933.html

Sen. Mark Dayton said today he is closing his Washington office because of a classified intelligence report which made him fear for the safety of his staff.

He also says he would NOT advise people to visit DC in the near future.

If nothing happens democrats will accuse President Bush of spreading a climate of fear. If there is an attack Bush will be blamed for inciting more terrorism due to the Iraq War.

Bush is far from perfect but he and his administration are constantly put in a Catch 22 position. They are damned if the do and damned if they don't.

Great. I'm supposed to go to D.C. the day after the election. Maybe we won't be allowed to go?

wait, let me get this straight -- DC is a target? No friggin' way! I would have never guessed it! wooooooow! and coincidentally, it JUST became a target three weeks before a major election. woah freaky! I wonder if Sen. Dayton is worried about an anthrax attack in his building -- that's never happened down there, ya know.

Ok, back to work in my office in NYC across the street from the Trade Center, which was a terrorist target, before I go home on the subway, which is a terrorist target. Luckily, I don't work in a school because those are terrorist targets. Although I do work near the American Stock Exchange, which is a terrorist target.

Wake me up when, God forbid, something newsworthy happens.

*end of sarcastic rant*

When did Americans become such Wussies at home. It's ok if it's all over there.

Better to die standing up than live on your knees.
