With the thwarting of another terrorist plot to blow more Americans into Mohammedan confetti, I see four possible responses:
1. Conservatives will shudder at how close we were to losing more lives to terrorists, and will continue to support those who fight against terrorism.
2. Liberals will assume the whole thing smacks of "interesting timing" [insert favorite Rovian conspiracy here] and blame the administration.
3. The New York Times will not rest until the intelligence used to break up this plot is fully exposed, thus rendering it completely unable to thwart any future attempts. They have a reputation to protect, after all.
4. Dave Barry will blame the squirrels.
