Nagin: We're Used to Filth

NEW ORLEANS, LA -- Despite concerns expressed today by President Bush and FEMA, New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin outlined his plan to repopulate the city "one zip code at a time". According to Nagin, "a city without people has no need for a mayor... and I intend to be a 'wanted' man". He continued, "The longer people stay away, the more likely they are to figure out there's a better place to live. And not only that, but my bribes and kickbacks have been all but wiped out."

Admiral Thad Allen, current head of the federal response effort to Hurricane Katrina, outlined a number of safety issues to the mayor and recommended a 'go-slow' approach. His list included, 1) no potable drinking water, 2) the potential for more flooding, 3) the lack of a credible evacuation plan for people who returned, and 4) the potential for disease from remaining flood waters and mosquitoes. "Besides that, the city is downright disgusting", commented Allen. "I can't believe anybody would want to go back in there at this time."

Nagin responded by saying, "What's a little bit of dirt? We're used to living in filth. So what if it's a little more than usual?"

Off-camera, Allen was seen smacking his forehead and saying "D'OH!"

New Orleans--

Mayor Naggin proclaimed today, the re-naming of the 9th Ward, to Latrina.

Since the conditions existing in the 9th Ward of New Orleans were revealed to the World by hurricane Katrina, we feel this new name more realistically reflects the description of the 9th Ward", said Hizzoner.

Nagin MUST be a racist and want "black folks" dead. He wants them in as soon as possible so "Rita" can kill the rest of them!

Sorry Hawkeye, I posted a similar thought at Scrappleface.

Were Nagin comments said from his new home in Texas?

Nagin and Blanco are having difficulties in skimming FEMA funds that are being provided for out-of-state refugees.

It is imperative that the refugees return to Louisiana before much of this money is lost forever to housing and sustenance of these refugees, in other States.

Look out, Ray, "lovely Rita" may be washing out your chances for a new boomtown bonanza. Have you given out the evacuation announcements yet? People are beginning to compare you to Flipper Kerry.

Nagin has all the credintials to be a member of the UN. He could probably go right to the top.

Good Point, Maggie.
I wonder if he has a son named ToeJam? He could head up the relief dollars for Dad scandle.
