The latest on Hurricane Isaac, which delayed the Republican National Convention for a day, is that it’s heading west. That’s generally good news for Tampa and the RNC. But the irony is that forecasters now see Isaac heading toward New Orleans, and hitting land Wednesday, the seventh anniversary of Katrina.

Four years ago, Gustav hit Houston. And though the Republican convention was far to the north– St. Paul — the business of the convention was delayed for a day. Jo Ann Davidson, the Ohio Republican who co-chaired the convention then, along with now Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine helped steer the delegates toward collecting money and other help for Texans.

It’s expected that, if Isaac does major damage later this week to the Gulf Coast, Democrats gathering in Charlotte next week may spend some of the early hours of their convention in a relief effort as well.
