"Frankenstorm"-- what some are already calling the predicted mixture of a cold front with hurricane Sandy, projected to hit the northeast corridor around Halloween. Hmm, wonder if the Weather Channel's tentative name for the first significant winter storm--"Athena", will be used, or will they abandon that and use Frankenstorm or just "Sandy"?  We await their exciting decision.   

Surely if this thing comes to pass its own spinning will pale in comparison to the spinning done about what it means and how it's handled.   One would think the political fallout could only help Obama going into the last week of the campaign (barring some kind of weirdness) as flaks point out over and over how well it was handled by FEMA, et al.  They've been looking for a story to come along and eclipse Benghazi but things have been slow lately.

What about the global warming references?  Oddly, that subject didn't come up in any of the debates.  With James Hansen NASA already predicting that 2012 will be the warmest on record no matter what happens from here out it's a bit of a head-scratcher.
