John McCain is talking about skipping the GOP convention or having it postponed due to Gustav. Here is what he said:
McCain told Chris Wallace of “Fox News Sunday” in an interview taped for broadcast Sunday that the convention could be rescheduled. “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,” McCain said. “So we're monitoring it from day to day and I'm saying a few prayers, too.”
No we wouldn't want festive activities happening while a hurricane was beating down part of our country. Would we?
Well to be fair, when McCain was eating cake with Bush while people were dying in New Orleans from Katrina, he was only a young 69 years old. I'm sure he has gained much more experience in these past three years.
