september: national preparedness month?

Hot on the heels of their “most liberal senator” strategy, the Republicans have a new tactic in the wings.

It does seem suspiciously like a Bush-Cheney re-election campaign ploy, funded at taxpayer expense. As he puts it, “It’s three years after 9/11, and less than three months before an election, and now we get a National Preparedness Month.” So what were the previous 35 months for?
