Storm could swamp GOP convention
Planners of the Republican National Convention in St. Paul held emergency conversations Wednesday about what to do if a tropical storm continues on its track as a potential Category 3 hurricane threatening New Orleans.
Gustav’s projected path suggests possible landfall on the convention’s opening day — Labor Day.
The storm could threaten everything from President Bush’s Monday night address to the broader Republican message of effective government management.
Local officials fear a Katrina II — a rerun of the storm that ravished New Orleans and badly damaged Bush’s image.
The liberal group Progressive Accountability planned to try to embarrass Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Friday for his response to the Katrina strike, claiming his was the 40th senator to visit New Orleans afterwards.
Lest we forget: Praying for Rain in Denver
Focus on the Family Action pulled a video from its Web site today that asked people to pray for “rain of biblical proportions” during Barack Obama’s Aug. 28 appearance at Invesco Field at Mile High to accept the Democratic nomination for president.
I don’t know what this means. If they really believe in God, doesn’t this mean God wants Barack for POTUS? Oh the irony, delicious, delicious, delicious irony.
