It's time for the October surprise

Oh-oh. Republicans are losing. And with the real possibility of indictments if Democrats regain control of Congress, it's time to reach into the bag of dirty tricks.

Indeed, Karl Rove has already promised an October surprise. What will it be?

A Democratic sex scandal?
Another terrorist act?
Another phony terrorist act foiled?
Free gasoline for all?
A palace coup?
A Swift-boating of Nancy Pelosi?
Hey, how about this? Let's attack Iran! Nobody wants to change leadership in the middle of a nice new war.

Or maybe it will actually be a November surprise, when voters go to the polls in Democratic precincts of swing states controlled by Republicans and find only one or two voting booths where there were traditionally a dozen.

Oh, wait. That wouldn't exactly be a surprise, since it happened in 2002 and 2004.

This just in: "terrorists" will attack an oil refinery in New Jersey.
