Hurricane Gustav is set to strike New Orleans the morning of opening day at the RNC Convention in the Twin Cities.
The AP shows the different responses…
John McCain tore up the script for his Republican National Convention on Sunday, ordering the cancellation of all but essential opening-day activities as Hurricane Gustav churned toward New Orleans.
“This is a time when we have to do away with our party politics and we have to act as Americans,” he said as fellow Republicans converged on their convention city to nominate him for the White House….
The hasty reordering of an event months in the planning was unprecedented, affecting not only the program on the podium but the accompanying fundraising, partying and other political activity that unfolds around the edges of a national political convention….
In an interview with NBC, he said it was possible he would make his acceptance speech not from the convention podium but via satellite from the Gulf Coast region.
“I think we can activate an e-mail list of a couple of million people who want to give back,” he said.
Basically it breaks down like this…
On one hand we have a guy that is willing to sacrifice what is traditionally the most important moment of any political campaign to help his fellow Americans by cutting the event short, going to the region, gathering fundraisers, and helping to oversee operations….
On the other hand we have a guy that is going to send out an email blast….
Remember that 3AM phone call… yeah, well, Failure #2 Barry. Failure #2.
Oh, and the point… It is not about you. It is about us.
The sooner you learn that, the better off you will be.

Seriously… what was the DNC thinkin with this guy?
Just Say No Deal.
