The Republican National Convention gets underway next Monday in Minneapolis which coincidentally is when some forecasts show Hurricane(?) Gustav making landfall at -- perhaps -- New Orleans. (And at least two Republicans probably don't need any reminders that it's been just three short years this Friday, August 29 since Katrina hit New Orleans.)
I hope for the sake New Orleanians that the Gustav fizzles before it even gets to their embattled town.
But if it does make landfall anywhere along the Southeast or Gulf coast, it will be interesting to see what the reaction of the current Republican administration will be this time around...AND the effect it'll have on their little soiree in Minneapolis.
I'm wondering also if McCain will be mentioning this when he makes his acceptance speech.
It looks like Gustav is already on the mind of the convention planners. Look at the screenshot (above) I made tonight when I visited their website!
