This begs the same question Varifrank had after watching Teddie & Co. last week at the Alito confirmation hearings: "Who votes for these people?"

Talk about "lunatic fringe." Btw, I thought I read some time ago that Nagin lives in Dallas, TX, now -- or, at least, he bought a new house there some time after he, Kathy, and Katrina destroyed his city.

Yeah, here it is:

Dallas Digs
Tuesday, September 13, 2005

"New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin greeted President Bush when he arrived in Louisiana last night, and was at his side as he fielded questions on the Katrina relief efforts this morning. That quality time with the president, however, marks the mayor's first visit to the disaster area since Wednesday when Nagin pulled up stakes and moved his family to Dallas. The Dallas Morning News reports that Nagin has already bought a house in the city, and enrolled his daughter in school.

"When the Mayor appeared on "Meet the Press" on Sunday from Dallas, he was never asked about his presence there, or his decision to move his family."

Maybe he's one of those wierdos who actually doesn't like chocolate. I've heard there are such people in the world, as unbelievable as it may sound.

Who votes for such morons? If the slow-thinkers in Massachusetts re-elect Bubbles Kennedy, anybody can be elected, and I mean anybody.

Mayor Nagin is a full fledged liar and an a racist idiot to boot. Even our left leaning mass media in the U.S. has been shocked by his inflammatory racist remark about a "chocolate New Orleans".

After receiving pressure from all sides, he finally apologized publicly. However, he still has not been made at all responsible for the numerous deaths in New Orleans which were largely due to his lack of leadership in the timely evacuation of the city. This action was dictated by the city's hurricane emergency ordinances.

Could God be racist??

“If the slow-thinkers in Massachusetts re-elect Bubbles Kennedy, anybody can be elected, and I mean anybody.”

I am a Mass refugee, living 10 miles over the border in New Hampshire. Teddy Kennedy is starting to get long in the tooth for the new generation of Mass voters. What keeps him in power are the older voters, who still adore his brother Jack.

I know an Italian immigrant family near Boston. They have a picture of Jack and Bobby on the wall with Pope John Paul next to them, with Jesus’s picture on top of all three pictures.....The Kennedy’s are part of the Holly Trinity.

Whenever I diss Teddy K at family get-togethers, my 80 year-old Irish-American aunt will make the sign of the crucifix and exclaim. “That poor Rose has so suffered!”

Hopefully, his days will be numbered when the old immigrant population dies out. I know that the Kennedy cousins are not doing well in politics. Only Teddy’s son, Patrick, got elected to Congress in Rhode Island, in the same congressional district as his alda-mater, Brown. The rest of the Kennedy cousins can’t get elected dog catcher, even on Cape Cod.

Follow up on "Bubbles Kennedy."

The National Enquirer has reported that Teddy has a love child on Cape Cod. He had a fling with a young local woman between his divorce from Joan and his marriage to his present wife, Vicky, whose father co-incidently is a convicted ex-mayor of New Orleans.

This happened between 1983 and 1984, when the Senator was already an ageing 51 years old. The "son" is now 21 years old. The Mom has apparently received $15K a year in "hush money" from the Kennedy Family Trust.

Before you go "ah hah, the National Enquirer," the Boston Herald picked up this story and published it today.

The New Orleans mayoral and city council elections have been postponed by Nagin's like-minded pal Gov. Blanco. Unless things have changed, it is supposed to be at the end of April. No matter when it is held, Nagin has a big problem because most people in NO despise him now and many of those who still like him (or depend on him for their money) are not going back to the city. It goes without saying that Blanco has even less of chance of being reelected than Nagin does.

I get really sick and tired of politicians, of any stripe, who try to claim that God has taken their side of an argument. It sounds every bit as silly coming from Nagin as it does coming from the likes of Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell. Philosophical point: The good Christian or Jew would say that it isn't God's responsibility to choose a team; it is our responsibility to choose to be on His team.

As for the rest: That was an interesting little veiled threat against the "Uptown" people, by which we assume Nagin meant "whitey", even though there are plenty of middle-class blacks living in the areas he speaks of (some of which were hit every bit as hard as the Lower Ninth Ward). But since blacks that succeed on their own initiative are "race traitors" to the American Left, I guess they need to take cover too. New Orleans has already flooded and burned, but apparently that isn't enough destruction to suit its leaders.

Meanwhile, Biloxi, Gulfport, and Bay St. Louis are quietly rebuilding. And they have Creole traditions and customs too. I wonder whose Mardi Gras is going to be the bigger tourist attraction five years from now.

So God is mad at Germany too?

All the time when old Rumsfeld spoke about chocolatemakers I thought he might be referring to our European counterweight fetishists... good to know that it in fact was all about some American idiots with a God complex.

Nagin is right when he states "...We're not taking care of ourselves. We're not taking care of our women. And we're not taking care of our children when you have a community where 70 percent of its children are being born to one parent..." though.

Black people aren't less capable of achieving something than Whites or other races. They're being told by the left wingers that they should rely on the State to improve their situation. The left doesn't want successful Blacks, they don't want successful people at all because they know once someone is successful they'll distance themselves from leftist ideals. The left can only succeed in a climate of envy. The left are the real racists.

@dissilusioned german: So was Malcom X when he said similar things. While considering the source may be a logical fallacy, it does have its uses.

Oh Eric!: I'm certainly not pro-Nagin. After all he proved to be more than simply incompetent during Katrina. My main message simply was "The left are the real racists."

I agree with you 100%. I keep hearing from pundits, even on the right, that the "politics of low expectations" is "soft racism"... I suppose "soft" as opposed to lynch mobs and segregation... but the lynch mobs and segregation are long gone, at least in the US.

Right now, "soft" racism is the worst racism of all. It is sneaky, underhanded, and specifically delusional. It says, "I will help you because you are incapable of helping yourself." Is there anything as racist as making the assumption that someone is less capable simply because of skin color? That is the exact definition of racism--the old time lynchings and segregations were simply a symptom of this grave disease-- and I fall down laughing every time I hear a leftie using that excuse for, say, the riots in Paris or some other disruptive event, then accuse people who argue their points of being "racists".

Mamapajamas: Exactly, that's why I've got a lot of time for people like Bill Cosby (and others) who try to convince young Blacks that they need to stay away from gangsta rap etc. I know several Black people who grew up in loving families (both mum and dad are around) and didn't accept the "help offers" from people who "mean well". They worked hard, noticed there's plenty of room for Black achievers and took their chance. That's the kind of new generation of Blacks I'd like to see more of. They're great people with mainly conservative family values - that's one of the reasons why they're achieving their goals. They've got goals and the "safety net of the family" helps them to achieve these goals. Good on them!

It also says a lot about the political parties in the US when the first Black woman president is more likely to be a Republican than a Democrat. Where on Earth are the top Black politicians in the Democratic party?
