I am in Florida as hurricane Isaac approaches. Normally old men don't come down till November, but this Isaac's early. So I looked at my fridge and pantry and came up with this vision of my food plan of action if I lose power.
Hurricane Isaac seems likely to remind Americans of George W. Bush. And the split screen on the TV newscasts -- part GOP convention, part Hurricane Isaac bashing into the Gulf Coast -- will pose a public-relations problem to the GOP of the first order.
Even if the GOP is reluctant to finally accept the science behind global warming, they could at least reconsider their attacks on the government-funded satellites and other research that allow us to track and predict storms like Isaac.
