HURRICANES

We're all relieved that New Orleans was spared from the devestation that might have been caused by hurricane Gustav. It veered to the west and lost some of its power.

And Republicans were relieved that its convention was spared visits from President Bush and Vice President Chaney. Their Monday night prime time speeches were cancelled because of Bush's need to be in charge during national hurricane emergencies.

Convention leaders do have some concern, however, that President Bush may wish to address the convention via satellite from his position on the hurricane front lines in Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana.

The planning and execution of responses to Gustav were assisted by the command post visit by John McCain and Sarah Palin, who have had much hurricane experience in Arizona and Alaska respectively.

Meanwhile, hurricane Hanna is forming in the Atlantic posing a substantial threat to the Bahamas and to Savannah. This gives new meaning to Ray Charles' Hard Hearted Hannah, the Vamp of Savannah GA


McCain Picks Palin as VP Nominee

McCain did manage to step on the buzz from Obama's stirring closing ceremony speech. Palin-Biden seems a clear mismatch but perhaps not since she is such a charmer

Since Palin was a feisty and successful point guard, maybe she and Obama should go one-on-one.
