"Your 'reality', sir, is lies and balderdash and I'm delighted to say that I have no grasp of it whatsoever."
— Karl Friedrich Hieronymus, Freiherr von M√ľnchhausen

"I am a fashion god"

As reported by CNN, FEMA director Michael Brown was hard at work while hurricane Katrina devestated the gulf coast. He corresponded via e-mail with his advisors and associates regarding finding a dog-sitter and discussing what he should wear. A few days before Katrina made landfall, Brown's press secretary advised, "Even the president rolled his sleeves to just below the elbow. In this [crisis] and on TV you need to look more hard-working." On the day Katrina hit, he answered, "If you'll look at my lovely FEMA attire, you'll really vomit. I am a fashion god." That morning, he had written to Cindy Taylor, deputy director of public affairs, "Can I quit now?"

The incompetence of this administration is utterly staggering. Doesn't the president realize that indulging in this wanton cronyism has cost countless American lives?

Better yet, Brown has formed a consulting firm specializing in emergency management. You can't make stuff like this up.
