Even the mayor, who stands to gain the most from a week of national focus on his city, says he might call off the Republican National Convention himself if a direct hurricane hit seems likely.
“Absolutely we’re prepared to call it off,” Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn told CNN this morning. “I mean, human safety and human life trumps politics. I think the RNC recognizes that.”
You have to wonder if the GOP might be better off. For starters, and thanks to their rape-gaffe Missouri Senate candidate, the party can expect extra attention on their planned platform stance against abortion in all cases, including rape. That essentially echoes troubled Rep. Todd Akin’s argument for a blanket ban against abortion in all cases, no exceptions.
The television networks have dramatically scaled back coverage of conventions this year. Even Mitt’s wife, Ann Romney, will not be on broadcast TV when she speaks. This leaves the conventions with nothing but their own partisans to reach on cable channels where few persuadable independents pay attention.
If Isaac steals the show next week consider it a wash for Republicans. So much of what they will say and do, while firing up the base, will likely frighten independents more than a hurricane.
