Now that Bush has been re-elected encouraging news is pouring in from...

The Department of Justice:

"I take great personal satisfaction in the record which has been developed. The objective of securing the safety of Americans from crime and terror has been achieved." -Outgoing AG John Ashcroft in his modest and unassuming resignation letter.

I'm sorry, this could be my memory again, but wasn't it just last month that the wolves were circling? and the Vice President of the United States was promising that Chicago would be nuked if we voted for Kerry?

The Department of Homeland Security:

"November 10, 2004 - Today, the Department of Homeland Security announced that the U.S. government has lowered the threat level for the financial services sector in New York City, Northern New Jersey and Washington, D.C. from 'high' or Code Orange to 'elevated' or Code Yellow. Since the threat level was raised on August 1, 2004 state and local leaders as well as the private sector have worked hard to strengthen security in and around specific buildings and locations as well as throughout the financial services sector. "

Wow, fancy that. One week after the election and the terror alert goes down. I hear that the Capital Police has also begun dismanteling the barriers surrounding the building. I guess now that Georgie is safe, there's no reason to pretend the rest of us are in danger....

Is anyone else noticing how much safer things have gotten now that the election is over?
