All spring and summer we heard about the October Surprise. It was going to be bigger, better, more devastating than ever! Some posters on this forum mentioned it 4-5 times a day. Every day. I guess that was supposed to intimidate people into voting republican.

So... where is it?

I guess the real October Surprise is: trying to spread rumors and spouting off warnings of an October Surprise didn't fool anyone. Just like none of the other games have fooled anyone. Sorry Carl Rove, your playbook has been closed. Obama's gonna win. Surprise!

No surprise, but not from lack of trying!

Because witnessing a totally amoral person in action is fascinating. Someone totaling lacking in scruples and honor is a sight to behold.
