Peek beats Bush (video)

Well, we're very flattered that we've got a better communications system than the president, even if we're a bit alarmed. A CNN video from ThinkProgress shows Bush "workin' hard thankin' people" at 12:39pm but blissfully unaware that Michael Brown had resigned (yesterday's Peek post on the subject is from 12:13).

When asked by a CNN reporter about the resignation of FEMA director Michael Brown he got flustered and said that he'd have to talk to DHS secretary Michael Chertoff [VIDEO].

He told the CNN correspondent: "Maybe you know something I don’t know."

ThinkProgress notes that that wasn't the first time the president was "not on the ball" yesterday... (ThinkProgress)
