It looks like the GOP, known (rightly) for years as the "Stupid Party" actually has a clue about what to do if Gustav slams into the Gulf Coast during next week's convention:
The contingency plan – a worst case scenario if the storm devastates coastal areas – would turn Republicans into Red Cross-type volunteers who would help collect donations, food and goods to help storm victims.That might just do the trick in terms of killing the meme that I worried about a couple of days ago.
McCain - whose campaign motto is "Country First" – said helping people during an emergency will take precedence over accepting his GOP nomination for president.
"It wouldn't be appropriate to have a festive occasion while a near tragedy or a terrible challenge is presented in the form of a natural disaster," McCain told Fox News in a pretaped interview airing today.
The link to the Post story comes from Instaglenn, who wisely suggests "sending a group of volunteers down afterward, with Sarah Palin in charge." Yes, please.
