Republican National Convention preview: Tampa

Prominent Republican and evangelist huckster Pat Robertson has suggested that gay people cause hurricanes (and also tornadoes and possibly a meteor).

Recent Presidential contest loser Michelle Bachmann has suggested that hurricanes are God’s way of getting politicians’ attention.

In other news, which is totally not related to any of the above in any way, shape, or form, no-sir-ee, the National Hurricane Center reports that Tropical Storm Isaac is expected to become a hurricane by Thursday, and threatens to head toward Tampa, Florida, where Republicans will be gathering for their National convention at about the same time.

The name “Isaac” is a biblical name, and he is characterized in both the Bible and the Qur’an as a righteous man of God, and a well-digger by trade. I can’t think of a better addition to Tampa than Hurricane Isaac, to help the Republicans dig their holes deeper and deeper.

I hope my Republican friends attending the convention also watch out for meteors.
