OFFICE ATTACK INDEX

"Office attacks," I wrote after Howard's victory, "might be a new measure of electoral success." If so, bet on Bush:

Yesterday, the Bush campaign provided a list of more than 40 examples it said had occurred since July, including the burglary from campaign offices of several items: two laptop computers in Seattle; a banner in Thousand Oaks, Calif.; petty cash in Spokane, Wash.; as well as break-ins last Friday in both Flagstaff, Ariz., and Cincinnati.

Violence against you = votes for you! (Other Bulletin columns may be found here.)

Maybe they were against violence and intimidation, before they were for it? Somehow this has to be John Ashcroft's fault...or Haliburton's.

Nice theory, but it doesn't explain why Tony Abbott -- whose office was smeared with shit -- had a 2PP swing against him.

This has all the earmarks of a Karl Rove plot. I expect the Kerry Committee will be anouncing this soon.

We had all the Bush signs in our neighborhood stolen except for the one in my yard. Nothing left but Kerry signs now. Strange that mine would remain but my neighbor's would disappear. I tend to see a lot of torn up Bush signs as well. Just out of curiosity, do any of you Kerry supporters feel threatened in any way?

The DNC just announced that John Kerry was personally repulsed by these attacks and er oh never mind.

Guy From Ohio - all the Kerry supporters I know *live* on the feeling of being threatened. It's their meat and drink to get together and give each other chills about the godawful things that will happen once the BusHitler is re-elected, and talk about moving to Canada, etc etc etc. Of course, they have no concrete incidents of they themselves personally being threatened/harassed/having signs torn up - but it's happening! They *know* it's happening, and they love the thrill!

Frankly, they remind me of a lot of kids huddled together in a tent telling each other those standby kiddie horror stories about the China Doll and the Golden Finger. They enjoy it because in their hearts they know - it ain't real.

Well, there's the difference to kids. I have little doubt that plenty of ABB'ers (can't quite call them Kerry supporters) don't actually realize they're living in a world of their own make-believe.

Karl Rove's been known to pull these stunts. In fact, paunchy bald men have been spotted in the vicinity of every attack!
