Nagin & Hillary: Ebony and Ivory

[hat tip: Michelle Malkin & Laura Ingraham

I was getting tired watching Hillary Clinton 'reinvent' herself as a Centrist. If you have any antennae at all for politics you'd realize that Hillary is a consummate politician - she'll portray herself in whatever the polls say is best for her political advantage.

We now see the real Hillary coming out. But just like the elusive Spotted Owl, you have to be paying attention to catch of glimpse of her.

Last Monday in Harlem, she stood up at an Al Sharpton event and proclaimed that the House of Representatives is "run like a plantation. And you know what I mean."

At the same time we heard Mayor Nagin espouse his vision for a "blacks only" utopian New Orleans :

While Hillary wallowed in Farrakhan-esque rhetoric about Republican slavemasters oppressing black people's right to be heard, Democrat New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin paid tribute to civil rights and the fight for equality by freely mouthing off about his racial dream — a dream for a divinely ordained "chocolate" New Orleans: "I don't care what people are saying [in predominantly white] Uptown or wherever they are. This city will be chocolate at the end of the day. This city will be a majority African-American city. It's the way G-d wants it to be."

Asked by a local reporter for WDSU-TV in New Orleans to explain his remarks, Nagin sniffed condescendingly: "Do you know anything about chocolate? How do you make chocolate? You take dark chocolate, you mix it with white milk, and it becomes a delicious drink. That's the chocolate I'm talkin' about."

Nagin reminds me of something else on the Dairy Queen menu: Nuts. But watch as the media swallow his weasel rationalizations whole.

Some black leaders have condemned her comments as 'contrived' and 'condescending'.

It seems that the Democrats are concerned with keeping blacks 'in the back of the bus' because if blacks succeed, then that is bad news for the Democrats. The Democrats need bad news, negativity, strife and invented racial inequality in order to legitimize their party. What an empty platform to have.

If the demented white liberals continue to pander and condescend, the only thing they'll get is more blacks voting Republican.

That would be a good thing. Bring it on!

Nagin 4gets that when his city goes all chocolate, there will be no more vanilla spending real money there. What then? As far as I'm concerned they can have N.O. Been there once and wasn't planning on going back.
