Any excuse will do
I will never again doubt the power of the Reverend James Dobson, the head of Focus on the Family. When he heard that Barack Obama would hold an outdoor rally in Denver, Dobson prayed for rain. The near-perfect weather last Thursday, enjoyed by 84,000, made some question if Dobson had extraordinary powers after all. Now we know it was our mistake. Dobson prayed for rain in New Orleans to give McCain the excuse he was looking for to cancel George W. Bush's speech in St. Paul. Voila! Hurricane Gustav.
When Katrina hit three years ago, Bush and McCain were seen celebrating his birthday with a big cake. Not this year! If they could cancel the whole convention they would. C'mon Dobson! Any excuse will do. McCain has been trying to figure out how he could get through four days without a picture with Cheney, Bush, Rice and Pearle. Second on the agenda, how to keep his veep candidate away from the spotlight. One word, Gustav.
How did he rationalize the cancellation of the Bush/Cheney show? "My friends, we must take off our Republican hats and put on our American hats. America needs us now." Then he and Mitt attacked fellow American Barack Obama. Apparently God is okay with political attacks.
Who is Sarah Palin? She supported the bridge to nowhere until half the money was received; she is a creationist, anti-choice, global warming doubter, drill everywhere, right-winger.
Will Palin come to Bob Fest?
Check FightingBobFest.org to get the schedule, pre-register, get ready.
