As if any more was needed
It seems that the good mayor has taken it upon himself to blame
racism and government bureaucracy for hamstringing his city's ability to weather Hurricane Katrina and recovery. Which was followed by :
"And I, to this day, believe that if that would have happened in Orange County, California, if that would have happened in South Beach, Miami, it would have been a different response,".
When I first heard this, I thought that even for someone as demonstratedly capable of sticking a big foot in his oversize mouth as Nagin, this was amazing. Everything from people opening their doors to refugees to opening their pockets to give money and materials, to going to bloody NO to work on the recovery, and this asshole- who has NEVER YET admitted to any shortfall or wrongdoing on his own part in this- not only blames the feds for not saving him and everyone else from himself and the end product of decades of corruption, he flatly says that if the country wasn't so damn racist, ALL WOULD BE WELL!
I've been thinking about the proper response to this crap. Other than tar, feathers and a ride on a rail. I will, however, leave it to the folks at Coalition of the Swilling, who begin with a great big "Fuck you", proceeds to "You're a miserable excuse of a elected "leader" and gets better from there.
I guess this officially moves Nagin into Denny's category of Race Warlord Poverty Pimp, RWPP for short.
