Brownie bites the big green weenie
Mr. Brown, who was removed from his Gulf Coast duties on Friday, though not from his post as FEMA's chief, is the first casualty of the political furor generated by the government's faltering response to the hurricane. With Democrats and Republicans caustically criticizing the performance of his agency, and with the White House under increasing attack for populating FEMA's top ranks with politically connected officials who lack disaster relief experience, Mr. Brown had become a symbol of President Bush's own hesitant response.
of course, if you watched chertoff's disingenuous performance at the news conference where the announcement was made, the "spin" was that "brownie" had done such a good job that he is needed back in d.c. to oversee the whole enchilada rather than being stuck down south just tending to the leftovers of katrina... now, don't you find that comforting...? let's just suppose another monster storm roars in or, god forbid, there's a terrorist attack and "brownie" is still sitting on the top of the dogpile... makes you feel kind of all warm and fuzzy inside, doesn't it...?
