'Suddenly Osama" and "Rainy Day People" 

It's been noticed that Osama Bin Laden was conspicuous in his absence from Bush speeches until just recently. "Suddenly Osama" is back in to strike fear in the voters so they won't cut and run from the current disaster on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Osama has been saved for that 'rainy day' when he's most needed. It's a political calculation that it will instill more fear in the populace than it will contempt for the administration that's failed to bring him to justice for 9/11 and the USS Cole. Apologies to Gordon Lightfoot since he probably didn't conceive of OBL being one of Bush's 'rainy day people."

Rainy day people always seem to know when it's time to call
