“This is the time that we take off our Republican hats and put on our American hats”
– Cindy McCain at the RNC quoting John McCain (about 12:45 into this video)
Maybe I’m reading too much into this, but if your political party affiliation ever comes before your duty to the country and to your fellow citizens, you have serious problems. I know it was probably meant as a line to show that the Republican party is committed to helping out people in need, but I think it expresses the reason that our country is so screwed up right now. The people in the path of a hurricane don’t care about what hat you’re wearing.
