Swine Flu and RPV
This is looking worse and worse. The World Health organization believes a swine flu pandemic is imminent and raised its threat level to a 5 on a 6 step scale (Bloomberg story here).
An interesting question has been floating around the last couple of days – what if the GOP Convention needs to be cancelled because of a flu pandemic??? This has a small chance of happening, but with all the rancor in the AG race so far, can you just imagine the political mess that would ensue? What are the contingency plans?
Yet another reason to scrap these ridiculous conventions. Let’s get party registration done and have expanded participation via primary elections.
