I just read that McCain might make his acceptance speech via satellite from the "devastation zone".
This is a political move that I know he thinks will help him but will just make it easier for critics to take aim against him. Seriously, Republicans (aside from those who have active parts to play in Hurricane relief efforts) should stay as far away from Hurricanes as possible.
It'll be too easy for everyone to draw Katrina comparisons.
For McCain, it'll be worse than that picture of John Kerry in that weird costume.
