Republicans have recognized Isaac as a legitimate hurricane and are rushing to evacuate Tampa.
If it had been an illegitimate hurricane, the Republican National Committee would have gathered in prayer to ensure no damage occurred.
Rep Akin, spokesperson for the RNC explained that "only legitimate hurricanes are capable of causing damage. Sometimes scientists try to tell us which hurricanes are legitimate or not. But since all scientists are Democrats, we prefer to let God provide the definitive view.
"All hurricanes are of course the wrath of God against homosexuals. So we must celebrate all hurricanes regardless of their legitimacy"
