Two columns about incompetence and
one column by an incompetent
First this from Maureen Dowd:
Just last year, Federal Emergency Management Agency officials practiced how they would respond to a fake hurricane that caused floods and stranded New Orleans residents. Imagine the feeble FEMA’s response to Katrina if they had not prepared.
Michael Brown, the blithering idiot in charge of FEMA – a job he trained for by running something called the International Arabian Horse Association – admitted he didn’t know until Thursday that there were 15,000 desperate, dehydrated, hungry, angry, dying victims of Katrina in the New Orleans Convention Center.
Was he sacked instantly? No, our tone-deaf president hailed him in Mobile, Ala., yesterday: “Brownie, you’re doing a heck of a job.”
Then go read this from Steve Gilliard.
And, as usual, John Tierney’s column is a waste of paper, ink, formatting, press-time, bandwidth, electricity, and the seconds it takes to read it. Probing your nose with a finger would be more enlightening.
