Watching Bush's poll numbers crater and realizing that Dems will be tying Katrina around their necks, Republicans joined in the Brownie Bar-B-Q. Yes, Brownie was inept as a frat boy drinking buddy can be when handed a job instead of earning it.
"Brown described FEMA as a politically powerless arm of Homeland Security, which he said had siphoned more than $77 million from his agency over the past three years. Additionally, he said Homeland Security cut FEMA budget requests — including one for hurricane preparedness — before they were ever presented to Congress."
So what was he doing when all this was going on? Doing lines off Jenna's ass and swilling the good stuff with Rove?
"Brown, his voice dropping slightly, responded: 'I probably should have just resigned my post earlier and gone public with some of these things because I have a great admiration for the men and women of FEMA and what they do, and they don't deserve what they've been getting.'"
Amen to that, Brownie. The front line folks never deserved the complete lack of leadership they were given at the top, and Bush has proven there's no task they can't completely muck up on a moment's (or three days') notice.
