Too Little, Too Late

New York Senator, and former First Lady Hillary Clinton; former Democratic presidential candidate,former Vice President of the United States for eight years under Bill Clinton, and former senator from Tennessee, Al Gore, Jr., and the current mayor of New Orleans, the (dis) honorable Ray Nagin are the recipients of the YOUTHINKWHATdotCOM "Where Were You When We Needed You to Speak Sincerely About What's Wrong" Award.

    First MS Rodham-Clinton, who is by the way looking more and more Republican as her term in the US Senate wears on. You say the US House of Representatives is run like a plantation? I haven't heard a peep out of you with regard to the issue of domestic spying? What say you Ms Clinton??
    Next is VP Gore. So now, Al, you've not only a backbone, but a voice, too? I suppose the next thing I'll hear is John Kerry speaking up. Really Senator, perhaps you should visit your local hospital or tattoo parlor to have the yellow streak removed from your back.
    Speaking of yellow, Ray Nagin comes to mind. Here's a man who cussed out the Presdent of the United States on a local New Orleans radio program during the hurricane Katrina debacle, only to be taken to the wood shed like any errant slave should be when he speaks out against the master so the whole entire world hears his negative critique. Then he and the president make nice. GWB tells Ray to form a committee to rebuild, restore New Orleans without the flava, or as little of the flava as before. The former residents are critical of the committees suggestions. So on Martin Luther King's Birthday holiday, Ray decides to be the militant brother that some people think he ought to be, by stating that "New Orleans will return as a Chocolate City". What a fairy tale that is! Watch out, Ray! De masa gwine heerd yo' sayin' dem willful things and yo' gwine be in trouble...agin!

TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE! Better to remain silent and thought a fool than to speak up and remove all doubt. That's sound advice, I'd say.
