But here's something eerie and fun: I'm sure you've heard how it's quite possible that a hurricane is on its way to Tampa to join in the festivities of the GOP convention, right? I believe that Jennifer Rubin is inadvertently, subliminally willing it to happen! Wait, hear me out! Here's Jen's latest post, about how Mitt 'n' Paul are, you know, so great and doing so well and everything. Let me put a few words and phrases in boldface and you'll see what I mean:
It is not hard to see that something is happening in the presidential race. Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) are drawing huge crowds. Romney has a money advantage (another reflection of grass-roots enthusiasm). And a series of state polls in New Hampshire, New Hampshire and Michigan suggest the Romney-Ryan ticket is on the rise. Inside the Romney-Ryan camp, there is cautious optimism that the tide is building as Republicans head into their convention. At the very least, the campaign has weathered the most treacherous time, when President Obama enjoyed a huge spending advantage
If the public polls and the Romney-Ryan camp’s temperature reading are correct, what accounts for the uptick? With the caveat that this is what may be happening now and is not indicative of where the race may wind up, it’s fair to assume that several factors are at play.
Jen! What are you doing? Is it because the storm's name is Isaac?
UPDATE: Pony Pal™ Pareene responds, "Her excitement leading up to Tampa is definitely going to lead to her unleashing latent weather-controlling telekinetic abilities. I would put money on it."
