You are who you elect
Nagin, Landrieu in runoff

NEW ORLEANS -- Incumbent C. Ray Nagin and Lt. Gov. Mitch Landrieu headed for a May 20 runoff after a first-round election in this hurricane-ravaged city yesterday, both falling short of the 50 percent needed to clinch an outright win.

Thousands of voters scattered across the country by Hurricane Katrina returned to choose the mayor who will lead the city's rebuilding effort. With 90 percent of precincts reporting, Mr. Nagin was leading with 38 percent while Mr. Landrieu had 29 percent of the vote...

As much as the MSM and Democrats tried to place the blame for the inept governmental response to Hurricane Katrina in NOLA on the Bush Administration, the fact remains that it is and will always be the responsibility of local and state governments to be the first-responders during a disaster. To all but the brain dead, it is clear that Nagin led an incompetent, corrupt government before, during, and after Katrina. And the state government’s response to the disaster, led by Gov. Kathleen Blanco and Lt. Gov. Mitch Landrieu, was only marginally better,

That Nagin and Landrieu are now in a runoff for mayor of NOLA cements, in my mind, that NOLA is a city of yahoos.
