Likely GOP presidential nominee John McCain and his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, are traveling to Mississippi on Sunday to check on people getting prepared for Hurricane Gustav.If you've even sat in traffic while a motorcade tied up traffic for HOURS, you'll immediately see how wrong this is.
While Mississippi is not evacuating, they are still in the danger zone, and the last thing they need is a pair of pandering lightweights disrupting the necessary job of disaster preparedness.
Over in New Orleans, they are preparing for Gustav. While the storm weakened slightly over Cuba, it is expected to intensify. Ray Nagin:
New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin called Gustav "the mother of all storms," saying its destruction could outstrip that from Katrina, which flooded much of his city.
"You need to be scared," Nagin said of the Category 4 hurricane tearing along Cuba's western coast. "You need to be concerned, and you need to get your butts moving out of New Orleans right now. This is the storm of the century."
