Okay, could they have found a better way to get Palin out of the news cycle? "Oh, we want to help the hurricane victims..."You can hear the Mea Culpas and chest pounding from here. Did McSame actually say they were taking off their Republican hats to put on their American hats??? He sounds like Mr. Rogers, for Christ's sake. How much more exploitative can the Republican Party get??? What a fabulous way to separate himself from The Shrub. It is absolutely immoral to use the horrible misfortune of the people of New Orleans to glad hand votes from the American public. I say move the GOP Convention to the SuperDome, let Gustav hit, ignore the place for a few days and see what happens.
I really can't say much more, I'm so disgusted with the whole thing, except this: If they had done it right the first time in New Orleans, if they had paid attention to the countless reports that the levees needed repair, if they had rebuilt the levees and the homes after they were destroyed, if they had paid any attention to the loss of life and limb, the Republican Party wouldn't have to overcompensate now.
The American people are smarter than this. They will see through the ruse and common sense will prevail.
