I think Palin increases the audience for the RNC. Short term burst of energy and curiosity.

Apparently, with Gustuv, it's going to change drastically. Bush isn't even coming.

Why? Is he going to be too busy showing up to New Orleans 15 days after the hurricane hits?

neither Bush nor Cheney are coming..

they are probably going to do a condensed version of the convention, maybe just one day, just doing official business and that's it.. Or even a postponement.

the whole thing is definitely up in the air..

I am very curious about how the storm will affect the convention. I hope it doesn't hit as hard as they are predicting, not only because a) duh, that's sure better for all the people living in that area; but b) it would be a shame the repubs wouldn't get to have their big shindig after the dems did.

I barely watched any of the other convention, but as I watched Obama's big speech, I will likely tune in for McCain's as well.

That's surely just as well from McCain's POV though.

Yeah, I was going to say it's probably a plus for McCain...

This is a good thing for McCain. The more distance he puts between himself and Bush the better off he'll be.

and because I am not religious
and people may actually get hurt


I will not say this is divine intervention to help McCain

( even when I was religious, I had more respect for God than to reduce him to a genie - that grants wishes, or Santa - that gives gifts )
