I Hope You Republicans Are Happy
I have never been so bitter about getting a prediction right. I told you that the Couhig endorsement was the nail in the coffin. I don't even live near New Orleans anymore, and I saw that from a million miles away.
We all know why the swing vote went to Nagin. And it's f&*$in' pathetic. You sold out your city so that you could send a message to the Landrieu family. I hope you all are proud of yourselves. You sure showed them. You punished Mitch because daddy helped out the black people. Or, better yet, you punished Mitch because his sister (whom we all know is Hillary Rodham Clinton's best friend) has been humiliating W in Washington.
Saying that it was Moon Landrieu's fault that minorities took charge of City Hall is about as stupid as saying that W caused Katrina to come to New Orleans. You can criticize W for the response, but don't throw blame for things that are beyond his control. Integration was coming, no matter who was in office back then. Landrieu didn't make it happen. Why can't you just let it go?
I guess all of you Couhig Republicans who sold out Landrieu forgot the mantra that Old Man Reagan preached 20-plus years ago: Are you better off now than you were one month after Katrina?
You re-elected an incompetent race-baiter to settle a score. Wow, that's petty.
