The Terrorists Have Won

We might as well bring our soldiers home; pack up their rifles and artillery pieces, send back the ships and aircraft. Lock the borders. And will the last democrat (small 'd') out please turn off the lights?

U.S. counterterrorism officials are looking at an emergency proposal on the legal steps needed to postpone the presidential election in case of such an attack, Newsweek reported on Sunday.
It's been on all the news sites, newspapers, and TV news shows. But it's reported in the same tone of voice as Brittney's latest marriage instead of with the outrage it deserves.

Elections were held through out the Civil War without disruption. Not a single election was delayed or cancelled during either of the two World Wars. And yet Emperor Shrubby feels that just the threat of a terrorist attack is reason to plan on how to completely subborn our entire democracy so that he can ensure his re-election.

I'm not sure what the constitutional requirements are in such a situation; I'm not even sure there are any provisions for such a case. My guess is that aWol will have one of his White House lawyers draw up a "non-binding" legal opinion that states in case of a terrorist attack, the pResident can have himself crowned as Caesar.
