Debby Does... Tampa?

That (expletive deleted) storm is still in about the same place as last night, still stationary, spawning at least 20 tornadoes and dumping bathtubs-full of rain on the Tampa Bay area. This quote from Dr. Jeff Masters this morning caught my attention:
... The heaviest rains of Debby affected the Tampa Bay region, where over ten inches were reported at several locations. The Tampa Bay airport picked up 7.11 inches on Sunday. It's a good thing this isn't the week of the Republican National Convention, which is scheduled for late August in Tampa! Minor to moderate flooding is occurring at three rivers near Tampa, and flooding has been limited by the fact the region is under moderate to severe drought.
Dr. Masters never, as far as I know, mentions politics on his weather blog, but it seems to me that Mother Nature herself is pointing the finger at the party most responsible for so many mortgages underwater...
