Riddle me this. What do a former commissioner of the International Arabian Horse Association who was forced to resign, a former campaign event planner, and a former campaign media strategist have in common? They're the Number 1, 2, and 3 men at FEMA. Yeah, no need for experience there.
More evidence of Brownie doing a heck of a job:
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The government's disaster chief waited until hours after Hurricane Katrina had already struck the Gulf Coast before asking his boss to dispatch 1,000 Homeland Security employees to the region - and gave them two days to arrive, according to internal documents.But if only the poor, elderly, sick, and young hadn't chosen to stay behind, none of this would have happened.
Michael Brown, director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, sought the approval from Homeland Security Secretary Mike Chertoff roughly five hours after Katrina made landfall on Aug. 29. Brown said that among duties of these employees was to "convey a positive image" about the government's response for victims.
