Good call by Sen. McCain to temper the opening festivities of the GOP convention in light of New Orleans’ imminent drenching. Not enough, though, to dispel the widespread association of the Republican Party with natural, and national disaster. Perhaps if Bush and Cheney spend the next few days in a FEMA trailer parked in the Lower Ninth Ward, some grace might be given.
Hurricanes should be the least of McCain’s worries, though. Sarah Palin looks more and more like an enormous blunder on the ticket. More on this later.
