All right, citizens, it’s officially time to stop being hysterical about the “dry runs for terrorist attacks” that were supposed to be going on at airports. The whole thing was nonsense. Another false alarm about terrorism during a bad news cycle for the Bush administration. Pretty surprising, eh? I’m sure you fell out of your chair in astonishment over that one. There’ll be something else to get hysterical about, just you wait.
What does Michael Chertoff’s gut have to say about this? And what part of his gut will be speaking this time? The stomach? The small intestine? The large intestine? The colon? I think that’s a question that answers itself.Give it a couple of weeks. August is almost here, and that means it’s time for George II to go fishing. I expect the government will celebrate by rounding up another bunch of mental patients and crack addicts who were plotting to blow up the Washington Monument with cherry bombs, or something equally plausible.
