Brownie bites back
Do you think former FEMA head Michael Brown is a tad pissed at his critics as well as Dear Leader?
A leaked AP video proved that Bush knew about the dangers the Gulf region faced as Katrina loomed, countering the Administration’s claim that they had no idea of the gravity of the situation.

Look at this swipe, which is in an upcoming Playboy interview. (Raw Story):
Several quotes from the piece appeared in today’s Washington Post, including rages against President Bush, Congressman Gene Taylor (D-MS), and Homeland Security head Michael Chertoff.
…”[Bush] doesn’t have an incredible command of the English language,” Brown explains…”Dealing with horses’ asses taught me how to deal with the federal government,” the men’s magazine is set to quote him as saying.
…Still, Brown saves his harshest words for Congressman Taylor, who accused Brown of being disconnected from the realities of the disaster. “For that little twerp to claim I didn’t understand death and suffering,” Playboy is set to publish, “he can just bite me, for all I care.”
