There’s some sandbags needing filling that have Bill Clinton’s name on them…

…he should go find them, start filling them, and generally doing something more useful with his time than politicizing Hurricane Sandy.

“We’re coming down to the 11th hour. We’re facing a violent storm,” Clinton said according to the Connecticut Mirror. “It’s nothing compared to the storm we’ll face if you don’t make the right decision in this election.”

    Anything that happens in NYC, that affects the media’s home turf, that impedes *their* ability to walk to Starbucks for a triple-shot mocha no-whip is instantly *Really Big News*.
    The weather, doubly so .. weather stories fly right past Legal, who’s gonna sue if they get a weather story wrong, after all?
    It’s a bad storm. It’s gonna be a mess. I’m glad I don’t live on the East Coast…. but it’s only getting the coverage it’s getting because .. NYC.
