The Key To Nagin's Success
Like many of you, I was shocked to hear Ray Nagin, the bumbling, fumbling, incompetent Mayor of New Orleans cruised to a comfortable re-election with 52.3% of the vote.
My first reaction was - New Orleans is stuck on stupid. The may be, and probably is true. If they are brainwashed enough to re-elect a man who took inaction to a whole new definition, they get the government they deserve.
Today, however, I learned that a very prominent leader in the Democratic Party gave Ray Nagin's opponent, Lieutenant Governor Mitch Landrieu, the proverbial kiss of death with an endorsement not even a Democrat could desire.
Who is that prominent Democratic leader? None other than Howlin' Mad Howie "I Have A Scream" Dean.
With Howie's endorsement of his opponent, Ray Nagin could do nothing but win.
