Well I hope Minnesota got paid up front to hold the GOP Convention this week. 'Cause as of now the current Prez and Veep, as well as the GOP Prez and Veep Nominees have bailed out of attending because of a Hurricane.
And OF COURSE it is just a way for them to skip having to show the Country just how Busted and Tired the GOP is these days. After the Dem LoveFest in Denver, it would have been a disaster to try and upstage them. So they are pulling the plug as we speak.
Oh, and I bet very few News Sources will call them on it.
Oh No, they will let Sarah Palin pretend that she is somehow involved with a disaster that is occurring nearly 3200 miles away in a State that she isn't the Governor. And Cheney? Why is HE not going? He has no official job relating to ANYTHING to do with this kind of event. And I really wanted to see him spin some crap about Iran having SARIN or something. Oh well.
They definitely lucked out with Gustav. I wonder what their "back up excuses" for not going were?
- "A dog ate my speech"?
- "Lake Wobegon Dam Might Collapse"?
- "We all have the flu"?
- "Air Force One, Two and Three are in the shop"?
