Hurricane Gustav Diverts Bush; GOP Delegates Relieved

The Republicans have a hurricane to thank.

With a big new storm hitting the Louisiana coast today, George Bush won't be speaking at the Republican convention in St. Paul—saving the party the embarrassment of an appearance by an extremely unpopular president.

Here's a quick summary of that feeling from Politico:
Given the deeply conflicted emotions that swirl around the president from within his party, Bush's decision to forgo the convention saves Republicans an awkward moment.

God may be trying to tell the GOP something. He seemed to smile, weather-wise, on Obama's parade. No, wait, surely He wouldn't hurt or kill innocent people in the process.

But according to Rev. Hagee, whose endorsement was sought and received by McCain, Hurricane Katrina was God's retribution for homosexual sin.

If you believe Hagee, then apparently God is OK with killing innocents to make His points.

Maybe the GOP should take away a message, regardless of its source: don't solicit endorsements from lunatics.
