Ding ding ding ding ding! We have a winner!

It was almost two months ago that your humble correspondent wrote this:

As the American midterm elections approach, there's more and more chatter about the possibility of a Republican-inspired "October surprise" -- some momentous event that will suddenly drive the votes in favour of the GOP.

As the old saying goes, speculate and you shall receive:

"[Troop withdrawals] shouldn’t be a political decision, but it is going to be with this administration. … It’s as clear as your face, which is mighty clear, that before this election, this November, there’s going to be troop reductions in Iraq and the President will then claim some kind of progress or victory."

Try not to look shocked. It doesn't become you.

but they (the administration)promised troop reductions in 2003.. and 04.. and 05. is there a reason they should be believed this time?

hmm, spelling failure on my part, 'please cohere and try again'. sort of takes the wind out of a snark when there's no coffee in the house to focus the typing fingers. d'oh
