Hurricane Gustav: Let's turn lemons into lemonade -- McCain can address convention from disaster site

Hurricane Gustav: Dems, Kos, and some in the press are giddy about this wrecking the GOP convention. The media now have an excuse for essentially ignoring the convention (giving us far less exposure than they gave the Dems). Also, if we hold a celebratory convention, then they can clobber us for that too.

My idea: Postpone the convention for a month, inconveniences be damned. This will never happen, sadly.My second thought is to have McCain deliver his acceptance speech from the disaster site along the Gulf coast, by satellite. Make as his theme disaster relief. Encourage all Americans to donate, etc.Have hurricane victims behind him. Make it a “humble” speech — vastly opposed to Obama’s coronation.
