I Guess They Are Stupid...

Or, Bus Driver Bob reports back to duty.

KTVB.com in Boise carries the AP story relating New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin's re-election. A stunning development considering the comments hizzoner made after Katrina. Of course, he's to blame for the poor response the city made to the oncoming storm last year.

"Nagin, a former cable television executive elected to office in 2002, had argued the city could ill-afford to change course as rebuilding gathered steam. (wouldn't a change of course mean something would be done?) He and Landrieu are both Democrats, but Nagin is largely viewed as the more conservative of the two candidates because of his business background and his past support of Republican candidates for other offices." Funny thing about some of the voters: "Evacuees arrived by bus from as far as Atlanta and Houston to vote." Perhaps Mayor Nagin did learn something after all. If only he thought of using buses before the storm....
