Is Hurricane Isaac divine intervention at the Republican convention?

 Where is Jerry Fallwell when the Democrats need him? There is always Pat Robertson but don't expect to hear much from him about hurricane Isaac bearing down on Tampa causing the cancellation of the first day of the Republican convention.

 Wasn't it Fallwell and Robertson who said the 911 terrorist attacks were divine retribution against America for the acceptance of gays? Didn't Robertson say the earthquake in Haiti a few years ago was divine retribution for Haiti's evil religious ways?

 So what would either of them call the biblically named Hurricane Isaac forcing cancellation of the Republican convention's first day?

 What do the Christian Right and Tea Party lunatics think Isaac is? Isn't this Old Testament retribution for the evil ways of Republican conservatives? Isn't it a true sign? Is it just a coincidence that the hurricane is named after the Old Testament patriarch Isaac? Is it a coincidence that it has built up force and become more powerful the closer it gets to the Republican convention?

 If conservatives, the ignorantly named Tea Party ( the original Boston Tea Party from which they take their name had NOTHING to do with taxes and less government), and the Christian Right were at least honest and consistant, they might see Hurricane Isaac disrupting the opening of their convention as a sign. You can bet a year's salary that if it was the Democratic convention Isaac was disrupting,every conservative lunatic from Rush Limbaugh to Michelle Bachman would be claiming it was divine intervention and a sign. Maybe they will put their so called beliefs where their mouths are and consider that maybe it is. But then that would be asking them to be honest.

The fact that Republicans, conservatives and the Christian Right have not as yet seen it as a sign,or if they are, they're not saying so, is a pretty good  sign in and of itself. Of what the Republican convention and those attending will really be all about. The usual hypocrisy.

"I would warn Orlando that you're right in the way of some serious hurricanes, and I don't think I'd be waving those flags in God's face if I were you, This is not a message of hate -- this is a message of redemption. But a condition like this will bring about the destruction of your nation. It'll bring about terrorist bombs; it'll bring earthquakes, tornadoes, and possibly a meteor." –Pat Robertson, on "gay days" at Disneyworld

Michelle Bachmann today warned about a "spirtual hurricane". As always leave it to her to miss the point even when it hits her between the eyes.
