I'm on Isaac's side.  Rain the shit out of those Republicans.  Maybe they will build an Ark and take all of their kind on board.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

If Tampa gets hit during the convention, I'll be waiting for Pat Robertson's reasoning on the matter. Since, according to him, natural disasters are always caused by horrid people who do horrid things, his reasoning for a bunch of wet republicans will be priceless.

On the downside, if the hurricane veers 3" or more either way and avoids a direct hit on the convention site, he will take full credit for the save, citing his incredible prayability.

So unless my atheist prayers are met fully, he is going to look pretty good to the blind on this one.
It isn't true that non-existent gods can't do anything. For instance, they were able to make me into an atheist.

The results are pretty predictable.

If the storm messes up the convention, it will be the devil's fault and somehow Obama will connected to the devil, or is the devil himself.

If the storm misses it will be god's will which allowed the convention to be undisturbed by the storm

I have a theory.  I think He is aiming at Haiti.  And the republicans are just going to be the innocent victims. 

There are a lot of innocent victims in God's great plan.  I mean, all of those toddlers in Noah's day weren't all really really bad sinners, right?

But God really hates Haiti.  Desperate poverty.  Two generations of brutal dictators.  A recent US coup that went unnoticed by the international community.  A devastating earthquake, followed by cholera.  Half a million still living in tent cities, most of whom have no idea that a hurricane is going to hit them momentarily because they are not literate, couldn't afford a newspaper if they were, and sure as hell aren't surfing the web or watching the tv news.

God really hates Haiti.  They must be his intended victims this time around.

Thats cause the Haitian government sold the soul of the country to the devil years ago.

Exactly HOW a government goes about making this pact (one can only assume lots of LSD, pentagrams, and infant blood) is unknown.  But Pat Roberson says its true, so it must be.

^Oh boy, I get to deliver mail in the remnants of a hurricane.  Hope it fills up the Mississippi River a bit.

If the tropical storm knocks down trees in Tampa, I sure hope the Republicans don't expect BIG GOVERNMENT to pick those trees up so they can get to their festivities.

They built it themselves.

They can clear their own fallen trees.
