This is what is going to be on MSNBC all day tomorrow – fair warning

From Fox News online:

WASHINGTON — Former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge claims in a new book that he was pressured by other members of President George W. Bush’s Cabinet to raise the nation’s terror alert level just before the 2004 presidential election.

Ridge says he objected to raising the security level despite the urgings of former Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and then-Attorney General John Ashcroft, according to a publicity release from Ridge’s publisher. He said the episode convinced him to follow through with his plans to leave the administration; he resigned on Nov. 30, 2004.

I’m too tired to predict exactly the screeching that will pass for programming tomorrow; suffice to say that is is entirely predictable.

Nice work, Tom. Should get you in pretty good position for the GOP nod in 2012.
