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.
