Moonbats: Wrong Again!

Back in September, the moonbat universe was a-twitter with the word that President Bush had come up with the nastiest "October Surprise" yet: he was going to attack Iran with two (!) Carrier Strike Groups! In a move that I guess they thought was totally unprecedented, the Eisenhower Group was going to be joining up with the Enterprise Group for relief in place. Here's what the main moonbat said we should watch for:
One solid indication that the dispatch of the Eisenhower is part of a force buildup would be if the carrier Enterprise--currently in the Arabian Sea, where it has been launching bombing runs against the Taliban in Afghanistan, and which is at the end of its normal six-month sea tour--is kept on station instead of sent back to the United States. Arguing against simple rotation of tours is the fact that the Eisenhower's refurbishing and its dispatch were rushed forward by at least a month. A report from the Enterprise on the Navy's official website referred to its ongoing role in the Afghanistan fighting, and gave no indication of plans to head back to port. The Navy itself has no comment on the ship's future orders.
Well, today the Navy did comment -- the Enterprise Strike Group is on their way back home. Of course, it's obvious what happened; because the vigilant moonbats publicized Karl Rove's evil plan, he had to cancel it. Instead, he used is Rovian Mind Control Rays to make Sen. Kerry sound like an elitist boob. That darn Rove!

I kinda think the Enterprise is headed back, especially since my son-in-law emailed me day before yesterday that they were clearing the Suez for the Med already, and had already handed off to Ike.

Duh...
