Patriotboy puts the recent ‘we might have to postpone the elections’ business into the proper historical framework:
One way to counter the opposition would be to make the conditions triggering the suspensions very specific—like only when the Capitol Building is burned down. I’m sure that if the “terrorists” saw that Our Leader was trailing in the polls, they’d burn down that great symbol of capitalism. Then, we could blame it on their fellow travelers, the liberals, and round all their leaders up. I’d be glad to help out if you can get me a cool uniform—I look great in brown. After we’ve dealt with them, you could turn us loose against shops owned by liberals. Why should they be allowed to make a living when they are undermining the Homeland’s security?
