At last...

Well, it's the final day of real campaigning before the election. I think all election ads should be pulled at the end of today - but I won't hold my breath.

Osama apparently made his bid for affecting the US election over the weekend, though it's not clear how and for whom. I don't think too many of us are listening to him. It does seem to suggest that he either wasn't able to muster an attack, or he was afraid an attack would favor Bush. Or both.

Apparently the 380 tons of missing explosives that Kerry and the press screeched about last week 1) were never there, or 2) were trucked off before the war, or 3) trucked off by US troops and destroyed along with another FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND tons of explosives. Bush probably didn't respond because he didn't have the facts and he's not one to spout off at the mouth before he knows the whole story.

Kerry, on the other hand, is willing to say anything if he thinks it will help get him elected, the facts be damned.

If you're thinking of voting Kerry -- consider that. You may like what he's saying, but from the look of it, he's just saying things to get elected, not out of any deep convictions he might hold.

Of course, if you haven't decided who to vote for by now, you probably shouldn't vote anyway. Voters should be educated on the issues and the issues behind the issues. If you're not, don't.
