As if almost to announce it, to highlight it, to call everyone's attention to it, Stumblin' Bumblin' John McCain, and his new sidekick, The Midnight Sun, want to give a public example of Barack Obama's charge that Stumblin' Bumblin' Johnny "doesn't get it".

McCain may deliver convention speech from disaster zone

McCain was scheduled to deliver his acceptance speech Thursday but now may do so from the devastation zone if the storm hits the U.S. coast with the ferocity feared by forecasters.
Oh, how wonderful it will be for "his friends".

What better remedy to going through a disaster than to have a hack politician giving a hack political speech ... Like bringing the Dead Campaign Express into a disaster zone, and giving his acceptance speech, is going to be some magic elixir ...

Wait a minute! ... I know what their up to ...

As Stumblin' Bumblin' Johnny prattles on with his acceptance speech, Cindy and Midnight Sun will be tossing food rations, and bottles of water to the crowd ... You know, like they toss the beads off of the floats during Mardi Gras ... They can make it one, big happy event, before they take off in Cindy's private jet, to any one of his seven houses.

And this article from Politico, "GOP sees potential redemption in Gustav", should be retitled to "McCain, GOP sees potential in exploiting Gustav"

With the Republicans cutting back on their convention, Stumblin' Bumblin' Johnny offered up this gem;
"It just wouldn't be appropriate to have a festive occasion while a near tragedy or a terrible challenge is presented in the form of a natural disaster. So we're monitoring it from day to day, and I'm saying a few prayers too," he told "Fox News Sunday."
Hmmm ... I guess, three-years ago, as people in New Orleans sat on roofs, waiting to be rescued, or the ones who waited for days, at the Convention Center, and nearly died of thirst and hunger, it wasn't necessary for The McSames to curtail the "festive occasion";

Let Them Eat Cake!

Hmmm ... If he does go the route of giving his acceptance speech from the hurricane area, what are the odds that Stumblin' Bumblin Johnny will be in simple blue dress shirt, sleeves rolled up, using the same set of lights that the Commander Guy did, and go to the same spot, in front of St. Louis Cathedral
