    If Frankenstorm hits a swing state, will one political party claim the storm was responsible for a poor turnout for their party? Whilst ignoring the fact that the storm affects all people equally regardless of political persuasion?

    Not just swing states - generally, rural areas are more republican, metropolitan areas are more democratic. If there are major power outages, the cities will get their power fixed first. In all the states.

    Cities are more likely to have backup locations for polling if there's serious flooding.

    So it looks like democrats could have a huge edge...

    Except democrats tend to stay away from the polls if the weather's crappy.

    Should be interesting.

    Which party will be the first to claim that the storm was an act of God?

    Which religious group will be the first to claim the storm was a result of America's support of homosexual deviants?

    If the storm causes serious damage, which party will start the blame game first?

    I hadn't thought about the extremist religious reaction.

    It is not you. The storm is politicizing itself. There is this magnetic attraction which is drawing Sandy in to the White House...
