The Real Plan

According to Badtux the Whacko Nut Delusion and America’s most famous junkie have pronounced soon-to-be Hurricane Isaac a creation of Zero and his minions at the National Weather Service to disrupt the Republican National Convention in Tampa.

Like most ‘intelligence’ reporting by those of the elephantine persuasion, this is shallow and misses the real purpose of this Chicago-style political masterstroke.

[I will pause so you have time to acquire the metallic headgear that you prefer…]

Robert Reich, without realizing that this was planned by the Offal Committee in Chicago, realizes the real impact of the operation – to bring He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named [the Shrubbery] back into public awareness during the mega-photo op of the Tampa clown convention [with apologies to clowns, well, those clowns who don’t terrorize children].

Now this took some real planning to get the Republicans to hold their convention on the Gulf Coast over the anniversary of Katrina, and then have a storm that spooks the Repubs into some last minute changes, but not to cancel [Tampa is a Democratic town after all], and then send a hurricane into New Orleans on the anniversary of the Shrubbery’s biggest screw-up.

With all of the archival footage they have of Katrina, the media couldn’t possibly ignore anything as bright and shiny as this hurricane in the middle of the roll-out of Romneybot 3.0.

Now the Repubs will know why there has been a drought – because Zero has been collecting all of the rain to create this storm.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled program …

[Sigh, I guess I should mention that this is not a serious post before I see it being featured on Faux News, etc.]
