Run around in circles and cry "coup d'etat!" 

Just wait for the Democrats to have a ball with this one:

"U.S. counterterrorism officials are looking at an emergency proposal on the legal steps needed to postpone the presidential election in case of [terrorist] attack, Newsweek reported on Sunday."
If this story gets any traction, and you can be sure that so many will want it to, you can expect the fresh outcry about trying to steal the elections ("Wasn't 2000 enough?"), not to mention the conspiracy theories galore (any terrorist attack that might so delay the election will be seen by the fringe, and not so fringe, as an inside job - the Reichstag fire '04 - to help Bush stay in power), even wilder than those that have already deemed S11 a CIA/Mossad operation.

Never mind that we're talking about contingency plans for an unlikely extreme scenario (hey, imagine the "heads-I-win-tails-you-lose" Democrats having a go at the President if something were to happen and there were no contingency plans) of a terrorist attack taking place the day before, or on the election day, which would postpone the elections for a few days only anyway.

Who'll be the first to claim that Bush's "October Surprise" will be the December election?
