God has a way of making his political will known through meteorological events. We all remember how Hurricane Katrina punished liberal New Orleans for its sinful ways -- just to be perfectly clear, God shaped the hurricane to look like an unborn child. In August, God first directed Hurricane Isaac towards the Republican National Convention, to remind conservatives of the importance of government emergency services, then pushed Isaac toward New Orleans, to remind them of George W. Bush's failed response to Katrina. Or, in Rush Limbaugh's telling, the National Hurricane Center just made it look like that to screw with Republicans. In any case, unless you are a Doubting Thomas like Limbaugh, you know in your heart God uses the weather to express his policy preferences for the upcoming congressional term. Now there's another big fat storm coming towards the Northeast, and of course it has political implications. What will Hurricane Sandy, aka the Snor'eastercane and Frankenstorm, do to the presidential race? And the liberal media?
Possible event: Sandy swings Virginia to Obama or Romney.
Prognosticators: The storm could crash through Northern Virginia, which is "among most swing-voter rich regions" in the state, BuzzFeed's Rebecca Berg tweets. "It is likely to hit during a full moon, when tides are near their highest, increasing the risk of coastal flooding. And because many trees still have their leaves, they are more likely to topple in the event of wind and snow, meaning there could be widespread power outages lasting to Election Day," CBS News reports.
