Every time Dubya's problems increase.

You can expect a new terror warning. And after the battering the administration has taken over the last week because of the torture of Iraqi prisoners, today's new terror warning from the FBi is no surprise.

This time, the feds are telling local police agencies to look out for suicide bombers. Interestingly, even the FBI bulletin admits there's no hard intelligence supporting a threat of suicide attacks, which makes the timing of this alert even more suspicious than most.

In its weekly bulletin distributed to 18,000 agencies, the FBI says to look out for people wearing bulky jackets on warm days, smelling of chemicals, or even individuals whose fists are tightly clenched.

The bulletin also says suicide bombers may disguise themselves in stolen police uniforms or even as pregnant women.

And we guess that people should be really worried if they spot a pregnant woman wearing a bulky jacket and carrying an almanac.

We just couldn't make these up if we tried.

I'm not one to wear a tin-foil hat, but I think these guys are going to do *anything* to stay in power. You think these psychos are scary now? Wait until they're backed into a corner and fighting to the death.

I imagine we will be in a frenzied RED alert status from October 1 through the election.
