Abu Ghraib, illegal war, wiretapping Americans, shredding the Constitution, on and on, it's somewhat amusing to watch the GOP and McCain scramble all over themselves to avoid further criticism of their incompetence. Instead of seeing Bush and McCain eat cake as they did when Katrina struck (above photo), I suspect we'll be treated to the spectacle of them looking sufficiently grim and worried, doing their photo ops in Louisiana while the hurricane roars. In his bid for President, McCain is trying to rewrite history about his response to Katrina and the aftermath of investigations into the corruption which hampered rebuilding New Orleans, but this link tells a different story.
Here in Florida, surrounded by hurricanes in the Gulf and Atlantic, it can't help but bring to mind the two competing parties in this years' election and the stormy campaign awaiting (as if we didn't have enough with the long-winded Democratic nomination.) The calculated move by McCain to select a totally unqualified woman such as Sarah Palin as VP is absurd and arrogant at the same time. He assumes that because he picked a woman, any woman, he'll siphon off disgruntled Hillary voters because women will vote for a woman, any woman. If anyone is disgruntled enough to vote for McCain (not many I'm sure) or not vote period because of lingering ill will, you really need to know about the VP who might one day be sitting in the White House with a McCain presidency. Check it out.
