Should the industry be expecting a hacker response to election results?

Do you think if bush gets back in that hackers have something ready to
launch against internet targets?
Are security firms ready for a major internet incident?
Are the major dot-coms got staff working late incase something occurs?
Is this realistic or is my drama filled imagination getting the better of me?
Personally i'm expecting something, i don't know if it comes in the
way of a denial of service of some description or a virus outbreak, or
perhaps a high profile defacement on one of the major dot-coms.
I think if hackers were holding off an exploit or vulnerability for a
rainy day or day of high political importance, then the U.S election
result if it swings in the direction of bush would be the prime time
to use it.
