Chertoff's Guts

A few days ago, Homeland Security boss Michael Chertoff told the Chicago Tribune that he had no real reason to suspect a terrorist attack, but he had a "gut feeling" one was coming. This comment has gotten all sorts of people hepped up. What could be giving him this feeling, if he doesn't have any actual evidence?

My guess: he's talked to enough people in this administration to realize just how incompetent they are:
Undercover congressional investigators posing as West Virginia businessmen obtained a license with almost no scrutiny from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that enabled them to buy enough radioactive material from U.S. suppliers to build a "dirty bomb," a new government report says.
I don't know who the Bush crony is that's running the NRC, but I think he or she is due for a "heckuva job" call.

So al-Qaeda is stronger today than the day after 9/11 despite five years, ten months and two days of the Global War on Terror?

Three years, nine months and eight days after Pearl Harbor, Germany was in rubble, Japan was in ashes, and Sophia Loren was ten years, ten months and twenty-six days old; a clear victory for the people of Italy and the world.

And there are literally millions of Americans who, if asked, would say that Republicans are more likely to promote national security. And I am too fucking stupid to figure out how to make some serious money from that. Is there a number you can call to put yourself on suicide watch?
