RAY NAGIN CALLS FOR A "CHOCOLATE NEW ORLEANS." Ian Schwartz has it on video. Kind of ironic, on this of all days.
UPDATE: Nagin was also channeling Pat Robertson:
Mayor Ray Nagin suggested Monday that Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and other storms were a sign that "God is mad at America" and at black communities, too, for tearing themselves apart with violence and political infighting.
God's apparently also mad at us for being in Iraq, according to a further statement by Nagin.
Nagin seems to be doing his best to squander what little sympathy was left after the Louisiana delegation squandered most of it with its absurd demand for $250 billion in "reconstruction" money, much of which seemed destined to go straight into the delegation's pockets. Louisianans are not blessed in terms of their political class.
ANOTHER UPDATE: California's political class is a close second.
