Move over Pat Robertson

Move over Pat Robertson, there's a new nutjob out there and his name is Ray Nagin.

Yes, the Mayor of New Orleans.

Yesterday, Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Nagin said the hurricanes (one of which destroyed his city and killed thousands of people) were caused by God as punishment for the Iraq war.

"Surely God is mad at America. He sent us hurricane after hurricane after hurricane, and it's destroyed and put stress on this country," Nagin, who is black, said as he and other city leaders marked Martin Luther King Day.

"Surely he doesn't approve of us being in Iraq under false pretenses. But surely he is upset at black America also. We're not taking care of ourselves." (Source: AP, Jan. 17, 2006)

I would hope he retracts this statement soon.
