Next Week’s RNC: Perfect Storm?

2008rnc.jpg
Stuart Shepard of Focus on the Family made a “Praying for Rain” youtube video. He asked his followers(?) to pray for rain at Mile High Stadium during Barack Obama’s acceptance speech because he disagrees with his politics. “If God decides that rain of biblical proportions would be a good and proper meteorological condition for that evening,” He says on the video. “We’ll see it and we’ll say that it is good.”

Yeah, Focus on the Family should try focusing on their family and retire from rain dancing. Because it’s 80 degrees and sunny in Denver today.

Either way it makes Stuart Shepard look like an ass.

Anyway, Joe Strupp at E&P brings us a story of the Times-Picayune looking at the three year anniversary of Katrina tomorrow while bracing for Gustav.

“Keeping a watchful eye on Gustav has caused people to be less-conscious of the anniversary than they would have been,” Peter Kovacs said. “There is a sort of nervousness of ‘no, not again’.”

Reuters reports that some New Orleans residents may get evacuations orders by tomorrow. The storm could hit the gulf coast by Monday. That would make it make land fall the first day of the Republican National Convention.

Ouch.
