No Incentive to End Terrorism

I have pointed this out before, but recently an aide for John McCain said it for me: a terror incident on U.S. soil “certainly would be a big advantage to him [McCain].”

Charlie Black said this in an interview with Fortune. He since regrets saying this, but it rings true.

If terrorists attacked, people would be more likely to vote Republican. This probably doesn’t strike you as surprising, but think about the implication of this for a second.
