Why can't Pat Robertson pray Gustav away? If God is a Republican as the Republicans seem to think (but won't admit they think), why would he send a hurricane at this critical time?
Republicans have learned something since Katrina: They've learned to turn disaster to PR advantage:
"He wants to do something service-oriented if and when the storm hits and it's as bad as its expected to be now," the McCain source said.There he goes again, presumptuously acting as if he were already President.
They are also hoping to get McCain himself to a storm-affected area as soon as possible.
