Judge Ivan Levelle has ruled that elections scheduled for April 22 in New Orleans are to proceed. The heads of the 'Racebaiters R Us' wing of the Democratic Party are having conniption fits over the probability that Ray 'Buses, what buses?' Nagin may get the boot he most assuredly deserves in the first step toward replacing the incompetents responsible for the total local and state level inability to follow their own disaster plan.
Without the votes of the Ninth Ward moat inhabitants, there is a very good chance that the lack of decent governance in New Orleans may begin to come to an end. There is certainly reason to doubt that the rent seekers upon whom the Democrats depend for electoral control in New Orleans (and every other Blue Castle) will ever return to the fetid Ninth Ward swamps in which they were allowed to be hunted like wounded wildebeast by the local jackals under the incurious eyes of the most corrupt police force in the United States. They have found that the green checks upon which they depend arrive more regularly in Houston than ever they did in New Orleans - and the weather is better too. Why should they return?
