18. Gustav and Mac
Gusty Gus is doing Mac at least one big favor- providing an excuse for Bush and Cheney to slink out of the twin cities unheard and unseen.

But it's all downhill from there.

The reminder of Katrina is the worst possible backdrop for the Republican National Convention.

If Gustav is another catastrophe, Bush's inaction and McCain's votes supporting his lethargic response will be a black eye. See NYT on FEMA readiness:

And if things go well everyone will wonder why McCain didn't tap Bobby Jindal for VP instead of the sexy librarian lady.
