The Republican Convention has been completely derailed by hurricane Obama, er, I mean, Gustav! If there was any doubt where divine favor lay after the miraculously flawless Democratic convention in Denver, that debate is now over.
As Republican delegates flee to Canada like 1960's Vietnam war resisters, the Republican convention has been left in as much disarray as the Bush abandonment of NOLA.
Republican observers could not disagree more. The exclusion of two of America's most hated villains, George W Bush and Dick "What a dick!" Cheney is being seen as a heavenly blessing.
Since Laura "The Librarian" Bush had nothing to say but SHHH!, advice on the duck and roll during a hurricane will provide the usually terse public speaker with a topic.
As for Beer Baronness Cindy McCain she too must welcome the how to survive a hurricane agenda since "Drink Responsibly but not so responsibly as to lower my family's billions of profits" is the only speech she can give.
Republican advisors are declaring: "Clearly God Loves McCain!"
