I think a good gift for the President would be a chocolate revolver. And since he's so busy, you'd probably have to run up to him real quick and hand it to him.

I'm pretty sure everyone knows about this by now, but just in case this news isn't traveling far enough to reach my displaced brethren, the Mayor of New Orleans apparently got injected with angel dust and gave a speech that was crazier than a burlap sack full of mongoloids.

On the day the nation uses to commemorate a man who, for all intents and purposes, gave his life in the pursuit of creating a society where the color of your skin is completely irrelevant, Ray Nagin decided to tell the world that God wants New Orleans to be so overwhelmingly black that he had to use the word "chocolate" to describe it's level of blackiosity. No seriously, chocolate.

Seeming as he didn't use a more inclusive dessert analogy like, say, Rocky Road, I can only guess that I'm not actually welcome there anymore. And while it's apparently open season on the horribly racist food comparisons, I have come up a new slogan to help all the Mexicans that now inhabit the city feel a little more at home: "Latin-Americans: You Put Your Peanut Butter in our Chocolate!" I think it's got a real ring to it. I'm pretty sure I don't have the ethnic immunity needed to get away with saying it, but I'm just following our bold Mayor's footsteps.

Ray Nagin, eat shit. I stuck up for your ass during this entire ordeal, but really, get fucked. I understand you had to say something yesterday, what with it being MLK day and being the mayor of the city that was the target of the magic Republican created, black-people seeking hurricane, but for fuck's sake man.

So, my peeps, is this getting any national media attention? Has this caused any blips on the news radar near the NorteƱo listening plains of Dallas or the eternally 72 degree and breezy hills of Southern California? If so, what sort of reaction is there?

Honestly, some things look like they just exist. Nobody designed the FedEx logo. It just is. I thought your fly choco bar was just something you pulled from somewhere. Good work.

Danke, but you forgot to mention my fly choco bar I whipped up in 10 minutes in Inkscape.

Talked to the lady and she said that people at work are aware of it due to the paper covering it here.
That link had a nice excuse in it, that Nagin tends to talk to who he's with instead of speaking to the greater audience. It's nice, makes it look like he's not so media savvy, more "man of the people" and all. But I don't buy that shit for people I don't like and I can't really take it for someone I do.
And I liked the peanut butter and chocolate thing.

...he's as much your mayor now as he is mine. Which is to say he kind of isn't.

While I was conscious of that while I was typing it, it still felt appropriate. I suppose it was my sense of "home" still very much being centered there. The more I live here, the more I'm sure that will probably never change either.

Anywho, on a less maudlin note, it would seem someone in his office has their shit together:

Found out about here, but I think it was mostly do to chica talking to friends and being directed to look for the speech. However, the tv was on and I did see Nagin talking, just didn't turn the volume up. I don't know what to say about the guy. That speech was so out of character for the mayor that I knew and respected for the last couple years. I guess the stress has just finally gotten to him.

At least he held out longer than crybaby Broussard, though.

On another note, he's as much your mayor now as he is mine. Which is to say he kind of isn't.

when he said chocolate he was talking about a blend of black and white. There's white chocolate and dark chocolate. Put them together and you get milk chocolate, or "chocolate". It's all good. N.O. is going to be FINE! braa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
