You Get What You Vote For...

The bumbling mayor of New Orleans is at it again; and to think the voters could have kicked this fool out of office a few months ago. Read as Ray Nagin takes a swipe at New York City [after the interviewing reporter questions the progress in New Orleans]:
"That’s alright. You guys in New York can’t get a hole in the ground fixed and it’s five years later. So let’s be fair."
Fair, you incompetent fool? Your leadership during Katrina was a how-not manual of running a city during a crisis. You complain well, but the next time you are comforted with criticism of your leadership, how about owning up to your failures? Just a thought, because referring to someone else's tragedy is a little tacky. Tacky like the green-haired, goth hooker with 50 piercing [with at least 10 in her lip] who propositioned me in the French Quarter while I was visiting my mother about 10 years ago.

And for those that are wondering, my reply was "who is suppose to pay who?" Ah, New Orleans....
