Katrina: Things working very well for Brownie 

5:56 PM, Friday (these guys are so fucking predictable):

FEMA Director Brown Dumped

But wait! Brownie's not going to spend more time with his family, even though he did fake his resume (back)—he's still got his job!

The decision to order Brown back to Washington from Louisiana - he remains as director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency - marked the administration's latest attempt to assert leadership in the wake of the devastating storm and its aftermath, including the weakest public opinion polls of Bush's time in office.

So, wait a minute.

One day, Bush tells the nation Brownie's "doing a heckuva job," the next day, Brownie's out of a job.

I'm so confused! The only explanation I can think of is that Brownie's going back to DC to do an even better job!

Meanwhile, Brownie—surprise!—blames the press:

Asked if he was being made a scapegoat, Brown told The Associated Press after a long pause: "By the press, yes. By the president, no."

As for his plans, he said, "I'm going to go home and walk my dog and hug my wife, and maybe get a good Mexican meal and a stiff margarita and a full night's sleep.

"And then I'm going to go right back to FEMA and continue to do all I can to help these victims."

Aaaw. Shed a tear for Brownie—emergency management is hard work!

Hey, maybe Brownie could help the victims by airdropping Mexican meals and margaritas into the Astrodome!
