Make sure you watch the video of Fowler here. Making a joke about Jerry Falwell, were you? Nice try, Mr. Chairman. No one's buying what you're selling. And was that "right-wing nutcase" holding a gun to your head off camera and forcing you to make those ugly remarks?

Sort of reminds one of the brutal wife beater who claims that the victim made him do it.

Dems have plenty to worry about and it shouldn't have anything to do with the weather. They know that trying to come up with something -- anything -- to smear Gov. Palin is going to come up woefully short. Reading Maureen Dowd in the New York Times call her a governor of "an oversized igloo" today made me laugh out loud. I realize that being a governor pales in comparison to the credentials of a Chicago "community organizer", Ms. Dowd, but you really ought to try and hide your angst over McCain's brilliant choice.

And on the eve of the Republican Convention, what does CBS's venerable '60 Minutes' have on tap? A closer look at John McCain? An exclusive interview with Gov. Palin, perhaps? A feature on how a relatively small city like St. Paul is preparing for the huge event?

No, '60 Minutes' is interviewing Senators Obama and Biden. Classic liberal media bias. Maybe '60 Minutes' will get around to profiling Gov. Palin after Nov. 4th.

Nothing like terrifying liberals in the media and in the Democrat Party with a gun-toting, nature-loving, pro-life woman as the vice-presidential candidate.

They're scared, all right. Big time.

They weren't through basking in the well-deserved praise of Sen. Obama's Denver Temple Mount speech before John McCain came along and popped their big balloon with a huge pin from Alaska.

And now, the only thing that could possibly stifle the momentum, they figure, would be a horrific hurricane.

They go from blaming George W. Bush for Katrina to hoping for another one that might diminish the GOP convention.

Sad.

The good Lord willing, people will get out of Gustav's way, the damage will be as minimal as possible, and lives and property will be spared. That should be the prayer of ALL Americans of any political stripe.

But regardless of what happens, one thing's for certain: John McCain managed to trump Barack Obama in one fell swoop. After that extraordinary show in Denver, that's a pretty remarkable achievement.

St. Paul, here we come!
