Two out of three ain’t bad…

Ray Nagin: genius, idiot, or whackjob?

Hard to believe:

At a recent seminar about the rebuilding efforts, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin asked the crowd: “How do I ensure that New Orleans is not overrun by Mexican workers?”

While he’s at it, why doesn’t he ensure that New Orleans is not overrun by hurricanes?

Can you believe he said that? As Jay at Wizbang! notes, “If any white politician had said such a thing, they’d be lynched.” And, especially if it was a white Republican politician (excepting, maybe, Mavericks), it would be on the front page across the hemisphere.


  1. You make a good point but you forgot the Louisiana exception clause when making racist statements. For backround, you can look up the political history of David Duke.
