Limbaugh suggested that the government manipulated hurricane forecasts

Rush Limbaugh Says Obama Manipulated Isaac Storm Track To Delay GOP Convention: ‘The Hurricane Center Is … Obama’


On his radio show today, Rush Limbaugh suggested that the government manipulated hurricane forecasts in order to force Republicans to cancel a day of their national convention, saying the model “allows them to do it.”

“The hurricane center is the regime; the hurricane center is the Commerce Department. It’s the government. It’s Obama,” said Limbaugh.

In reality, the National Hurricane Center forecast is, roughly, what you get if “you average together the track forecasts from” several models, most of which are done by other organizations, in some cases other countries. Obama would have more luck using his apparently omniscient powers to alter the course of the hurricane itself than somehow trying to rejigger the storm tracks from all these different models, which are publicly available and updated continuously.

Limbaugh communicated his absurd theory on this imaginary scheme while simultaneously claiming “I’m not alleging conspiracy.”

I wonder if Obama can change the forcast for this weekend so it will not rain?

Booking a hotel in the Tampa area

I am planning a trip to Clearwater in October. I go on several web sites for hotels that I have frequent travel rewards for, each of them has this on their site for Tampa:

Please Note: Stays during the "2012 Republican National Convention" from 08/25/2012 through 08/31/2012 require a non-refundable/non cancellable credit card deposit for entire length of stay.

What if images of the Republican celebration air alongside shots of a hurricane striking New Orleans

Katrina’s specter: While Tampa has avoided a direct hit, Isaac risks presenting an even bigger problem for the convention planners here -- becoming a hurricane and slamming into Louisiana, Mississippi, and the Florida Panhandle on Tuesday. And politically, it has raised the specter of Hurricane Katrina. The New York Times: “Republicans were wary of the optics of television coverage split between the revelry and partisanship surrounding Mr. Romney’s nomination and the threat of the storm making landfall in Louisiana or Mississippi seven years to the week after Hurricane Katrina left an American city in ruins.” The paper adds, “It is the second consecutive time Republicans have had their conventions disrupted by the August storms.”

What does this image of Romney make you think of?




For me it looked like something from the Communist era of Russia.

Dee Snider blasts Romney camp's use of Twisted Sister hit

Another election year and the Republicans are illegally using music:

Are there any recording stars not named "Kid" or "Jr." who are willing to let the Mitt Romney campaign use (or like) their music? A week after Silversun Pickups issued a cease and desist order to the GOP candidate for playing one of their songs at events, Twisted Sister's Dee Snider has now spoken out with a similar objection.

After getting word that Romney's running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, used the band's biggest hit at a recent rally in Pennsylvania, Snider issued a statement to website
"I emphatically denounce Paul Ryan's use of my band Twisted Sister's song, 'We're Not Gonna Take It,' in any capacity," Snider said through his manager. "There is almost nothing he stands for that I agree with except the use of the P90X."

"We're Not Gonna Take It" spent 15 weeks on the Hot 100 in the summer of 1984, topping out at No. 2, making it the band's biggest hit.

I hope the Starship and the writers of We Built this City are paying attention

You can bet your dollars that the GOPers will play that song next week and my money would be on them not paying for the rights to play it.

That is what they do!

Songwriters: PAGE, MARTIN GEORGE / TAUPIN, BERNIE / LAMBERT, DENNIS / WOLF, PETER F.Chorus:
We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

Say you don't know me or recognize my face
Say you don't care who goes to that kind of place
Knee deep in the hoopla sinking in your fight
Too many runaways eating up the night

Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember
We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

Chorus:
We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

Someone always playing corporation games
Who cares they're always changing corporation names
We just want to dance here someone stole the stage
They call us irresponsible write us off the page
