"Snakes Very Very Vicious, Fuck You, No!"

(another wonderful quote from the "giddy" Daily Show interview with Samuel L .Jackson about Snakes on a Plane.)

Morwen Madrigal has had it with Nagin and she's getting the recall paperwork Monday. (See her open letter to His Alleged Honor here. She rants good like a New Orleanian should.) It is a long shot and numerically seems damn near impossible (see Ashley Morris' RECALL post and the comments) but the symbolic value and catharsis of it are worth it.

I'd like to ask C. Ray what he's done for black New Orleans other than being black. If you want to ask him something, come one, come all to the District B Community Meeting tomorrrow.

Need reasons to want to recall him? Read this and this and this and this and this. I'll get some more links together very soon. Trust G Bitch on that one.

Over lunch with a lawyer buddy today, I found that:

a) that the online petition that is going around now is completely weak in that it doesn't cite specific reasons for a recall and looks like a feel-good measure,

b) we need to check on referendum law in this state, and

c) research the legality of every last thing this involves.

Even the ones who hate Nagin with great vengeance and furious anger are simply too tired. It's time to get the blood flowing.

There's been some research. Yes, the online thing is a trifle. Others have looked at the law. A recall is nearly impossible but still needs to be tried. Displeasure must be voiced. Nagin is making a fool out of us all and it is time to stop.

C. Ray acts like being mayor is a vanity job or something, an outlet to express his fascinating personality. If I hear him muse one more time about the sacredness of the free market... He's wasting our damn time. If he won't get out of the way, we have to get him out of the way.

I don't think anybody's really thought about the implications of the fact that the federal government expects to approve a low interest loan of $120M to the city. That implies, strongly implies, that Nagin was willing to commit the city to a very expensive $150M loan package before he exhausted all the alternatives. By my figuring, he was ready to cost the city 6-7 million, just to help his own election. Whatever his motivation, anybody who's that careless with a broke city's money shouldn't be mayor. Hate to link to myself again after you did twice (thanks), but I want to see somebody ask Nagin about this. Also, the garbage cans.

David, exactly and right on. His ideas about "the market" seem to equal those of us not in his circle of cronies getting screwed and paying for his...farewell tour? Crusade? What can we call what he's done in his first 102 days? Or however he decides to count today.

Hi, everyone. I live in bayou country now, but I grew up in NO and I still love the place, even in its present tattered state. I can't sign the petition, but If I could, I would, and I'd work to get signatures.

It may end up no more than a symbolic gesture, but symbolic gestures can carry weight.

As Nagin travels around preening, the recall activity is hovering in the background demonstrating opposition to his vanity presentations.

At the very least, folks from other places will know that not everyone in NO is dumb enough to swallow his shit.
