Hurricane Gustav vs. RNC: Just a quick question

If Hurricane Gustav makes landfall as a Category 3 or higher hurricane, should the Republican National Convention be cancelled or postponed to avoid being seen celebrating while homes are being destroyed?

I can see some of the concern here, but let's face facts: Even if the Republican Party called off the party, shipped all their delegates to the Gulf Coast to fill sandbags, and donated the whole RNC/McCain campaign war chest to disaster relief, the Mainstream Media would STILL find a way to blame them personally for any damages that occur. There's no way that a genuine show of concern from the Republican Party will get ANY credit at all, so why worry about what the media will say?

Grow a pair, go ahead with your convention, and proceed to go after Obama & Biden like they're a cross between "rented mules" and "red-headed stepkids" (Rented stepkids? Red-headed mules?). Maybe if the Republicans start acting like adults and stay focused on the big picture, the public will finally realize that "feeling your pain" is a bullshit way of saying "I care about your misfortune, but not enough to let you keep an extra 5% or more of your gross income so that you could start saving for a rainy day".

But what the hell do I know? I don't have focus groups and pollsters.
