Been away so long I hardly knew the place

Well, I’m back from my travels and out of touch. Did anything happen at the GOP convention? Did NYC get burned to the ground by protesters?

Was I right? Was I right? John McCain is the GOP VP nominee, isn’t he? If not, it was Powell, right? Condi? Rudi?

Well, anyway, I also wanted to point out that MO readers who thought that the timing mattered thought that a capture or kill of Osama bin Laden after the end of August would possibly look politically motivated. Granted, only 36% of respondents thought timing made a difference. But we have entered the zone (which I find reasonable, though I will reserve judgment until it happens). Fo what it’s worth, I thought it would happen in May.

Presumably, the zone closes the day after the election.
