If Isaac Worsens, Why Not an RNC Aid Telethon?
By Jim Geraghty

If the Boston Globe is accurately reporting that “conversations with a series of top advisers” indicate that top Republicans are considering the cancellation of the entire convention — fearful that Isaac will be wreaking havoc on the Gulf Coast while they attempt to communicate their message to the country . . .

. . . and if, indeed, Isaac is as bad as some fear . . .

. . . then instead of canceling the convention, why not turn the televised proceedings into a telethon of sorts, urging viewers to send donations to the Red Cross and other organizations that will be handling relief for any hurricane victims?

Indeed, it would be wise to at least have a series of ads playing which have a message of concern.  Cancel the convention?  Hmmm...   :pondering:
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev
