HURRICANE MESSING UP POLITICS

Well, I had been planning to share my thoughts here about Barack Obama's big speech on Thursday night at the big football stadium, and how it was a monster TV event watched by millions of people, bla bla bla.

Anyway, who cares about that today. Obama was just on TV telling people to heed all the warnings and evacuations. And now George W. Bush is telling people to get out and has cancelled plans to be at the Republican convention in St. Paul to deal with the hurricane. (Some Republicans might consider that a good thing.)

Anyway, I do plan to put up some historic video of past Republican conventions soon -- only because I put up Democratic convention stuff and want to provide equal time. But it's clear this convention next week threatens to be totally messed up by the hurricane. It'll be just another reminder of the botched job done by authorities during Katrina. If the levees break again -- well, Bush will never hear the end of it.
