All over the news this morning, Republicans were crying about the fact that more attention is being paid to now Hurricane Isaac than the Republican Convention and the nomination of Mitt Romney for President. With Hurricane Isaac poised to hit New Orleans on the Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, and with the devastation Hurricane Katrina caused still in our memories, political shock jock, Rush Limbaugh, claiming that the government and more specifically, Obama, have somehow rigged a natural disaster to conveniently hit just in time to rain on the RNC‘s parade shows more and more the extremes they will go to create a conspiracy where there is none.
Obama is so powerful that he was able to summon a hurricane just in time to interrupt the Republican National Convention? All the more reason I should vote for him…the man is connected! I believe Rush’s statements solidify Whitney Houston’s famous quote “Crack is whack” but it’s Rush so insert oxycontin for crack.
The cancellation of Monday’s opening ceremonies at the RNC has obviously taken the wind of the their sail and it reminds me of episode 312 of Mad Men when Roger Sterling‘s daughter’s wedding is upstaged by the assassination of President Kennedy. That is exactly what has happened with the RNC. They have been upstaged and find themselves once again, stripped of any power…and we all know how Republicans respond to loss of power!
While I don’t know anyone who would wish a natural disaster would be the reason the RNC has less of a stage to showcase their ideology I do have to agree with Rush Limbaugh when he said–“…when you put this all together in this timeline, I’m telling you, it’s unbelievable!” and it is unbelievable because it seems even the Lord is looking to silence Republicans.
