I Think Mayor Nagin

…needs to scurry back to his cot in Dick Cheney’s Secret Location. You know, like where he hid out as the city flooded?

NEW ORLEANS – Residents began trickling back Monday as part of a plan by the mayor to reopen New Orleans one ZIP code at a time, despite repeated warnings from the top federal official on the scene — and President Bush himself — that the city is not ready.
Mayor Ray Nagin defended his decision to let people back in, and suggested that the federal official in charge in New Orleans, Coast Guard Vice Adm. Thad Allen, had made himself “the new crowned federal mayor of New Orleans.

Because every time he pops his little bald head out of the hobbit hole, he stuffs his foot in it. And, surprise! People could start dying again. I sense an ugly trend here.
UPDATE: The man just doesn’t get it.

After backing off on his call for some residents to return to New Orleans, the city’s mayor ripped into the top U.S. government relief official on Tuesday,…
…The mayor reversed course even as residents began trickling back to the first neighborhood opened as part of his plan, the lightly damaged Algiers section.

“You’re in”, “you’re out”, “come back”, “run away”…SOMEbody please eat the Mayor. I’m so confused.

I’m tired of men always coming and going, going and coming and always too soon.

    Nagin is such a bloviating arse.

  2. Cullen says:

    I had to look bloviating up, bastard.
    But yes. I guess while it’s not meant to be, he’s turning the office into a sinecure.

  3. (Cullen, in the future, when referring to Bingley in such a manner please use the following, correct format:

    BASTARD !!

    Thank you for your support.)

  4. Cullen says:

    No, no. I reserve that kind of emphasis for folks who drink the last cup of coffee out of the pot and neglect to tell anyone else.

  5. Mr. Bingley says:

    Yes, he’s only interested in the emoluments of the office, clearly without proper recompense to the citizens in his charge.

  6. Nightfly says:

    I’m puzzled – maybe from reading too many frothy lefty sites – but Nagin’s arguments seems to run thus:
    1. the Feds didn’t help out enough, or soon enough
    2. and now they’re trying to butt in with help.
    1. I’m the mayor, but the feds are responsible
    2. That guy’s trying to be the mayor, and I’m responsible
    1. Mike Brown is an incompetent loser who let us all die of FEMA’s neglect;
    2. Thad Allen is a megalomaniac for ordering FEMA to behave exactly the way I want.
    Anything I’ve missed?

  7. Lisa says:

    No, ‘fly, you’ve pretty much nailed it.

  8. Mr. Bingley says:

    Yeah, that does seem to sum it up rather well.

  9. Nightfly says:

    Woo-hoo! Maybe I could be mayor!

  10. The Real JeffS says:

    Why would you want to be mayor? Of New Orleans, I mean. Why not, oh, Pensacola?

  11. Ahem. We have standards here, ya know.

  12. Mr. Bingley says:

    Ah, Lilly von Schtupp!

  13. Well, she is the Goddess of Desire…sets men on fire…she has this power.
