Lokai and Bele In New Orleans.

Hey there, dear readers - let's play SPOT THE IRONY!
Most of what they are saying about Stacy Head is scurrilous or irrational, but she cannot look you in the face and deny the fundamental charge against her.

Head, as alleged, is white. And that is unacceptable, according to Malcolm Suber, who is leading a campaign to recall her. This is "a majority black district, and we think it should have black representation," he said.

Uh-hm. So, by that logic, we should toss our mayor, Kip Holden, because Baton Rouge is a white majority city? I think not. Kip's done a pretty good job.) Suber went on to call Head a racist.
I'm glad that Mr. Suber has the right to say what he thinks. I really am. It allows the rest of us to recognize 'hypocrite' from a long way off.

Bonus Points: Name the TV show the post title obtusely references.

UPDATE: In the comments, McGoo wins the Bonus Points. I guess a prize is in order - something from here, perhaps?

That would be Star Trek - I forget which episode.
