If Barack Obama were president, would the Democrats give a tinker's damn about New Orleans?
Even when the suffering, storm-battered people of southeast Louisiana were no longer useful as a battering ram against the Republicans?
I WONDER. See, it's starting to look -- with a Category 4 monster in the Gulf waiting to finish off what Katrina didn't -- that people who stand to lose everything they have are nothing more to their "champions" than expedient pieces of meat.
And Gustav's pending arrival on Monday -- as the Republican National Convention kicks off --"just demonstrates that God is on our side," according to former Democrat party chair Don Fowler.
To filmmaker Michael Moore, speaking Friday on MSNBC, the storm is "proof that there is a God in Heaven."
Meat to the Dems. Meat to the GOP.
A blood sacrifice to the worst demons of our fallen nature.
And in a day and change, possibly well cooked pieces of meat. That, of course, isn't important now. Not when there are political points to be made.
