Breaking: 'Brownie' resigns
The offensive cherry on top of the Bush/Brown FEMA debacle has got to be Brown's self-serving resignation which he's submitted for the good of everyone else (everyone alive and Republican that is): "in the best interest of the agency and best interest of the president to do that and get the media focused on the good things that are going on, instead of me."
From the Wall St. Journal via Raw Story:
"Michael Brown, the embattled director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency who was reassigned Friday from his post spearheading relief operations on the Gulf Coast, has resigned, according to people familiar with the matter."
"That move was widely seen as a precursor to Mr. Brown's eventual departure especially given that some members of Congress said that a reassignment wasn't enough. Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and three other senators said in a letter to Mr. Bush on Friday that Mr. Brown's "continued presence in this critical position endangers the success of the ongoing recovery efforts."While it's undoubtedly good news that Bush's original appointee who was instrumental in allowing the death of untold thousands is gone, look for spinners and bloggers to argue that the problem is fixed.
