why won't nagin shut up?

we finally get bush out of the white house, why then can we not get nagin out of city hall? why won't he just resign and move to texas or jamaica where he spends most of his time anyway? it is appalling that as crime continues to spike, nagin insist on creating controversy elsewhere rather than address the real issues. it seems to me that he has taken a page right out of bush's book. anytime something goes wrong in the bush administration, they just up the terror alert and panic everyone into forgetting what a shitty job he is doing. now, as the recovery is all but at a stand still and crime is soaring, nagin is disseminating lies about councilwoman head, accusing her of race baiting. he continues to do this despite the fact that those who have actually heard the tape of the altercation say that there is nothing with which to back up such allegations. how is this useful? how does this help the recovery? how does this manage our crime? how does this lure business and tourists to the city? hell, nagin has not even listened to the tape. my god! i really do believe the bastard has lost his mind. if i were head, i would sue nagin for slander and defamation of character. this whole exchange saddens me, coming as it does on the heels of the historic election of a black man to president of the united states. obama becoming president gives me hope than america can move past the color of someone's skin and band together as a country but i guess there will always be small minded people. nagin has no place here. he has over stayed his welcome. i don't care if his term is far from being over, it is time for him to do the right thing and move on. not only does new orleans have to clean up after katrina but we now need to tidy up his mess as well.
