the "October surprise" I would write

OK, here's the suckerpunch I want to hear from Kerry tonight at the debate. He can also save it for the next debate if he wants, but really, I want it out in the ether promptly.

I just want to hear him ask one question. A mere ten words. To quote Saint Reagan:

"Are you better off than you were four years ago?"

This question is positively damning to incumbents. Bush can hem and haw, but there's no reasonable answer he can give. Look at what he's accomplished with the neocon revolution taking the House, Senate, and the top job. And still, nothing good gets done. Are the (mostly inherited) recession and 9/11 incident partially to blame? Sure, it's not all their fault. But the more Bush has to rationalize and explain, the less the average voter is going to listen to the reply.

"Are you better off than you were four years ago?" Man, it just rolls off the tongue.
