Interrupting the Happy Dance

Jim Geraghty, over at NRO, points out that the Democrats aren't dead yet, and that they are desperate. That will make for a very, very nasty couple of months ahead. Geraghty quotes his political mentor, who he calls Obi Wan:
This fall they [the Democrats] will know no checks — October Surprises, maybe every day and all day. What this means, I don’t know — bombing Iran? Capturing Osama bin Laden or some other big name and announcing the news two days before the election? Get tough with Paris Hilton and send her to Guantanamo?
Media organizations and figures (especially ABC, MSNBC, the Politico, Stephanopolis, and First Read) all of which are first wave transmitters will spread the White House's latest talking points to the public. Keep an eye on those sources, because they are White House sock puppets and will tell you where the discourse is heading.

So, this thing is far from over and the worst is yet to come. Tighten your seat belts, we're in for a really nasty fall.
