McCain/Palin Heading Toward Possible Hurricane Destination

leave a comment »

Senator John McCain and Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin will be in Mississippi on Sunday to review hurricane and emergency operations.

Aides say McCain and his wife Cindy will join Palin in traveling to Jackson, Miss., Sunday at the invitation of Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour because of concerns about people threatened by the storm, which was heading into the Gulf of Mexico and menacing the same area ravaged by Hurricane Katrina three years ago. The storm could hit the United States as early as Monday afternoon.

The McCains and Palin will receive a briefing at the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency — a permanent operations center monitoring hurricane response.

Republicans are worried about holding their national convention during the storm.

If the storm’s landfall is serious, McCain said he probably would rethink allowing the four-day political gathering to continue.

“It just wouldn’t be appropriate to have a festive occasion while a near tragedy or a terrible challenge is presented in the form of a natural disaster,” McCain said in an interview taped Saturday with “Fox News Sunday.” “So we’re monitoring it from day to day, and I’m saying a few prayers, too.”

McCain and Palin are making a great team!

Where’s Obama? Still in Beaver Country with Biden?
