Sugar Ray

From my reading of the left-side progressive bloggers here in Louisiana, Oyster links to a post detailing Ray Nagins's latest foolishness.
I just caught word from one of my friends who works as a lobbyist in the Louisiana State Legislature of another gloriously stupid move made by Sugar Ray Nagin. He recently sent bags of Oreos to a handful of African-American politicians who supported Mitch Landrieu in the Mayoral election...including Karen Carter and Ann Duplessis among others.
Priceless. That is bound to ...what were his words.... start the healing process? You betcha.

In case someone doesn't understand the meaning of what Mayor Ray did, an Oreo cookie is black on the outside and white on the inside. To call a black person an Oreo is a great insult.

I don't get Nagin at times. I really like the guy in many ways and snet him money for his reelection. He seems like a good man that at times has moments. However this stuff just diturbs me. Isn;t Magin Term limited why does he care if some guy supported Landrieu. I am begiining to wonder what the hold up is in NOLA anyway. I note certain Liberal bloggers are blaming Bush for the recovery efforts. But unless, I am wrong there is money that isnt being spent because there is no plan yet implemeted. It is getting frustrating

PS: The term in Indian culture is "apple." In other words, they are red on the outside and white on the inside.

That's your anthropology lesson for today. The test is tomorrow. . . .
