Don't fall for the trap 

Matt Yglasias warns of the trap being set by those who are saying the Spanish people voted to appease the terrorists by throwing out Aznar's Popular Party in yesterday's elections:
The right would like to set up the following argument: If there are no attacks between now and the election, then Bush has defended us from terror and deserves re-election; if there is an attack between now and the election, then voting for Kerry would be appeasement.
Jacob Levy does a good job debunking this argument.
