We can expect a lot of silly things to come out of the Tampa convention, but who can top Crazy Rush Limbaugh's charge that President Obama was responsible for the first-day cancellation of the event? He accused the president of tampering with weather forecasts to make it appear that the city would be struck Monday by Hurricane Isaac. He said although he wasn't a conspiracy theorist, "It's the government. It's Obama!" No, it's a radio-TV host whose fans believe that Rushbo, not Obama, is God.
