McCain Changes His Tune

"It just wouldn't be appropriate to have a festive occasion while a near tragedy or a terrible challenge is presented in the form of a natural disaster," McCain said in an interview taped Saturday with "Fox News Sunday.

That didn't stop him three years ago when Hurricane Katrina rolled ashore:

Of course, the difference now is that the Governor of Louisiana is a Republican, so this time, you won't see the Chimpy Administration playing bullshit political games, such as trying to force the governor of Louisiana to turn over all emergency management authority to FEMA (a request which was never made of the governor of Mississippi).

The Republicans have seized on Hurricane Gustav as an excuse to keep their two least popular political figures, Chimpy and Lord Voldemort, away from the GOP convention.

Note also that the Republican preachers were praying that Obama's speech would be rained out. Didn't happen, of course. However, a major hurricane will make landfall in the U.S. when the GOP is supposed to start its convention.

Feel free to draw your own conclusions.

Well, they have set all the goons to roughing up college kids and other possibly brain-alive folks who might protest their little GOP fart-fest. So, they will have to look pious about New Orleans being scrubbed off the map.

While I'm blue about the destruction the hurricane has caused so far and I'm equally worried about NOLA, I do find it interesting that the RNC might not happen or have a less than favorable turnout.
