"Brownie, yore doin' a heckuva job"
- unqualified incompetent president to unqualified incompetent hack appointee.

Drownie still has a taxpayer-funded job
How #ucked up is that???

Former Fluffer of Equines, Mostly Arabians FEMA director and next Medal of Honor recipient Michael Brown is continuing to work at the Federal Emergency Management Agency at full pay as a "contractor," with his Sept. 12 resignation not taking effect for two more weeks. During that time, Brown will advise the department on "some of his views on his experience with Katrina," as he transitions out of his job.

The man who was a total disaster at the disaster agency is being paid to advise the department he was fired from? Excuse me?

Update: BuzzFlash notes that "CBS News has changed its account of this three times since we first posted it, from his being rehired, to his being retained as a consultant, to his just being there two more weeks. It's probably because FEMA got political heat and changed ITS story three times."

Speaking of incompetence... like attracts like:

How many more Mike Browns are there in Bush Gardens II?
Well, lots!

[S]cientists' drug-safety decisions at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are being second-guessed by a 33-year-old doctor turned stock picker.

At the Office of Management and Budget, an ex-lobbyist with minimal purchasing experience oversaw $300 billion in spending, until his arrest last week.

At the Department of Homeland Security, a well-connected 36-year-old White House aide with minimal experience is poised to take over what many consider the single most crucial post in ensuring that terrorists do not enter the country again.

I feel safer already.
