    The idea of an October surprise is for candidates who are trailing.

    The "October Surprise" people are the new End-of-the-World doomsayers, and they never remember the last time they made an identical prediction and were wrong.

    In 2004, they said there would be a Bush October Surprise and that he would suspend the Constitution, blah, blah, blah.

    In 2008, they waid there would be a Bush October Surprise and he would not leave office and would suspend the Constitution, blah, blah, blah.

    Every six months during Bush's regime, they said an invasion of Iran was imminent. It was almost like clockwork.

    Now this.

    This kind of shit is what you get when people with an 80 IQ have access to the most sophisticated mass communication medium in the history of the world. Any dumbshit can amplify their retardation a millionfold with a few keystrokes.

    The 'October Surprise' I'd like to see would be the emergence of a third choice.

    Someone Else for President!

    Not a third choice, but a fourth choice. A third choice will only insure that the other major party has a clear victory. Such is the case in the UK.
