Competence Finally Returns to FEMA

News & Politics

In keeping with the general theme of rolling back the wasted years of bogus Republican ideology, President Obama's FEMA pick, Craig Fugate, heralds a return to the days of James Lee Witt, when the Federal Emergency Management Agency was as good as it gets in terms of speed, efficiency and competence.

After seeing the once-proud FEMA devolve into a turkey farm (that is, a place to park otherwise-unemployable political buddies as a reward) under Bush, it's so nice to see it coming back to its former glory. And isn't it ironic that the Republicans, who whine so much about corruption in government, seem to be its patron saints?
