Mayor Predicts Chocolate City! Butter Pecan Lobby Outraged!

Ray Nagin is growing on me.

When he first started screaming his head off in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, I thought he was just a pathetic excuse for a leader. Not to mention an ignoramus: Katrina was "the worst disaster in the history of the country"? Did he miss, oh I don't know, the Civil War? the influenza pandemic? World War II, maybe?

Now, though, I'm beginning to see the guy can be a real hoot. In his Martin Luther King Day speech, Mayor Nagin explained that the reason there were so many hurricanes in 2005 was that God was angry at a) black people and b) the U.S. for being in Iraq.

The good news is this certainly shuts up those pesky "climate change" types.

The bad news is-- well, the bad news is a loony like Nagin still holds public office in the United States.

But after yesterday's performance maybe he won't for much longer.

While he's around, though, I'm going to be sure to check out his remaining speeches. They ought to be a riot.

Why, according to Hizzoner, is God angry at black people?

Me, I figured God is angered by people who beat up the homeless with bats, or set off car bombs or, say, leave all the school buses to get flooded so that a city below sea level can't be properly evacuated in the event of a hurricane.

P.S. Seriously, turn on the word verification thingy, because you're gonna get overrun with spam.

This dude is crazy! But then again how can we be suprised? This is the same individual that claimed the government moved slow because a majority of the population was black! He must think God and W are in cahoots against him

Personally I hold Bush, Chertoff, and Brown directly responsible for the New Orleans mess after Hurricane Katrina. I don't think there is a single republican administration in history that would have taken so long to send the grownups in to take over from Governor Blanco and Mayor Nagin. Unforgivable. Didn't this administration have models showing what would happen if a natural disaster occurred in an area run by incompetants? Has political correctness gone so far that we'll put people at risk when we know what's going to happen? Letting democrats run their enclaves during good times may be sweet and even compassionate sounding, but come on. Don't use the ol' "well we had to wait for their request before we could act argument." Be real! These are democrats. Would you give your kids whiskey and car keys and ponder what might possible happen? You already know what's going to happen. Come on republicans, you're the grownups! Start acting like it!

good point, christopher m.

Diane Miller said...

The problem with letting the grownups take over is the United States Constitution, which prohibits actions like that. Bush tried for at least two days before things got bad to get Louisiana's governor to let him help. She refused. Can you imagine the uproar that would have ensued if Mr. Bush had overridden her and sent in help anyway? It bogggles the mind.

Christopher McLaughlin said...

"Constitution" Diane? I thought Lincoln took care of that quaint concept seven score and four years ago. And I doubt anyone here can remember the last time a Supreme Court actually ruled against a commerce clause usurpation. But I digress. The irrefutable fact is that one must never Never NEVER leave democrats in charge during a crisis. Figure out a way to get around the "perception" of big intrusive brother. Enlist the assistance of big media. If the federales can stormtroop Elian Gonzales house, they can certainly figure out a nice way to go rescue folks from liberals.

Christopher McLaughlin said...

Actually Diane... I do, in my heart, want to agree with you. You asked me to consider the uproar that would have ensued. So I did. And you know what? It wasn't anywhere near as loud as the current one. Kinda scary isn't it? :-)

PS: For anyone who hasn't visited coulter chamber's blog, she has (oops I just assumed you're a she...) well he or she has an excellent Fox soundbite recap of Ann Coulter. Good job Coulter Chamber! When can we look forward to your postings?

Christopher McLaughlin said...

Yup...she's a she. I went back in her blog and right there under gender (sic) is states female!

Butter Pecan lobby outraged!?!?! LOL!!! I love your titles!!!

CM,

Last time the Supreme Court ruled against a commerce clause usurpation was U.S. v. Lopez...but I'll bet you already knew that, right? Only someone who used a phrase like "commerce clause usurpation" would.

Joke said...

I realize I am demonstrably shallow and vapid--especially when the fate of the Republic is in peril--but the word "usurp" makes me giggle.

Ah, Nagin. Remember when Sheehan used to be our entertainment? Different loonies, same drivel.

Therefore, due to his superior mental prowess, I dub Hizzoner, "Mayor Noggin" from here on out ;)

I flew from New Orleans to Houston and back today. The Big Queasy is still pretty ragged. Most traffic lights downtown are still not working. Most hospitals are still not open. Overall it’s a little cleaner than before Christmas. Found an open Subway sandwich place that was very busy and the help was friendly.

No doubt New Orleans will be “chocolate” again. I understand that Mexicans drink a LOT of hot chocolate, and I know that’s what Mayor Nagin meant. During my six weeks of consulting in NO I ran into several workers, white and black, complaining about the number of Hispanics in the clean-up work crews. Heh. Get used to it.

Speaking of the mayor, he’s about as “chocolate” as a PayDay bar.

Memo to Department of Homeland Security. If you’re going to wear your official DHS shirts on the jet, don’t ride First Class, or vice versa. It tends to make you look like UN “assessment teams” waiting for the 5-star hotels to open up.

Aren't pretty much all cities chocolate? Except maybe Anchorage, Alaska? Am I missing something here?

Walter E. Wallis said...

So what is wrong with Carob?

Mister Know It All said...

Anchorage Alaska is white chocolate.

News Flash:

Vanilli Chocolati, spokes weasel for Mayor Ray Nagin, has issued a statement on his comments.

"Our beloved Mayor's comments on New Orleans were taken out of context. The mayor was not referring to race when he made his comments about a chocolate city. He was referring to the new plan to rebuild. The city planners are going to use the game board from Candy Land to plan out and rebuild the city. The Mayor was only referring to the area to be called Chocolate Mountain.

The Mayor apologizes for any misunderstanding and hopes that God punishes all of those who thought his comments were racist.
