Cynic's disease

Help me, o occasional readership. Is this a good thing or a bad thing, the acidic machinations of my cynical mind? The sheer coincidence of a major terror plot foiled in London one day after Neil Lamont's victory rachets the Bushite revulsion reality up a few notches .. does anyone else think that this smells a bit fishy ... or Rovey? Afterall, we know the Blair "New Labour" regime is hand-in-glove with the Stateside Neocon tyranny. "Whoops, time to crank up the fear machine."

For your consideration. Note the absence of details. Names? Dates? Photos?

But the stirring of hysteria? In surfeit:

Here's DHS Bungler-in-chief Chertoff: "We cannot assume that the threat has been completely thwarted," U.S. homeland security chief Michael Chertoff told a hastily called breakfast-time news conference in Washington.

Or how about the AP's evocative headline: "Chilling Dread Re-Emerges With Air Plot."

"This had the earmarks of an al-Qaida plot," FBI Director Robert Mueller told reporters in Washington.

"This nation is at war with Islamic fascists," Bush said, reading from his own handwritten statement on the tarmac of the Green Bay airport.

But maybe I'm just wrong. Right?
