In light of pre-Foley-scandal reports that Conservative websites claim Rove has been promising GOP insiders an 'October surprise', my wheels are spinnin' about how the alleged October Surprise is or is not connected to the scandal. Did "Foleygate" actually catch the repubican party by surprise? Or, is it part of a greater scheme? After all, the information was brought to light by a republican. But how could that be used by them to their advantage?
The only possible scenario I can come up with at this point, if I had to, is that the scandal would serve to divert attention from the extremely bad news about the two wars (Afghanistan & Iraq), then the repuplicans will follow up by stealing the election with electronic voting machines.
Anyone else? I'm open to suggestions.
