Conservative Threat Level Raised to Red/Severe
With this week's revelations regarding the UK terrorist plot to blow up airliners en route the United States, the Perrspectives Conservative Threat Level (CTL) has been raised to Red/Severe (Return to Middle Ages Likely).
Despite President Bush's poll numbers languishing in the low 30's, the 2006 GOP midterm platform of "nothing to run on but fear itself" got a giant boost with the UK airliner plot. Among other mouthpieces of the right, Vice President Cheney is already on message with his mantra of "if Lieberman loses, Al Qaeda wins."
This latest increase of the CTL represents a dramatic heightening of the right-wing threat. Only last month, the Conservative Threat Level had been lowered to Yellow/Elevated (Bill of Rights at Risk). That relative calm reflected Bush's short-lived bounce in the polls with the onset of war in Lebanon, carnage in Iraq, the fiasco at the G8 Summit and Dubya's embarrassing first-ever NAACP appearance.
