collecting the sound bites as the GOP is bunching up the balloon bags in Tampa.
Tuesday: confident the Lord will keep bad weather away from the convention.
Thursday: we're staying put no matter what.
Friday: stockpiling lots of umbrellas. red umbrellas to ward off a hurricane. oh, and tents. you can't learn this level of stupid, you have to be born with it.
Saturday: well, maybe we won't meet Monday.
later Saturday: we'll convene to say "hi" and immediately adjourn on Monday. this of course is no different than holding a full meeting with all the delegates in the convention hall as a hurricane bears down, except then the thousands will be kicked onto the streets right away to scatter among the 20 miles of hotels in a gale or worse.
Sunday: John McCain saying woe is us if a storm goes on for 4 days, and prevents us from getting out our message.
well, uh, you know, I think we already got it. the GOP also denies hurricanes when they're in them. yeah, that's just what we need for four years in charge, here, seeing we already have a Congress that absolutely, positively won't do any work.
yeah, we got the message loud and clear, Senator.
