October Surprise Predictions:
Atrios and Digby have been mulling over what Rove has up his sleeve.

Here's my bet: the Marines, assisted by the Iraqi Security Forces, will nab Zarqawi, who has been built up as the new Osama, from a basement in Fallujah somewhere. His cell phone found on him will have UBL's number in it, and his computer email will show frequent correspondence with Zawahiri. In the week between his capture and election day, US forces will note a massive decrease in the Iraqi insurgency. Chalabi will attempt to take some sort of credit for the key role in the capture.
