CNN is running a great story about some idiotic emails that FEMA head Michael Brown sent out during the Katrina hurricane. By now the whole world knows he’s a moron, but these reveal even more astounding incompetence and outright stupidity in the face of thousands in need of help. It would be laughable if it wasn’t so tragic. A district rep from New Orleans posted a bunch of these emails on his website, but here are a few good quotes mentioned in CNN’s story:
“Can I quit now? Can I come home?”
“Tie or not for tonight? Button-down blue shirt?”
“I am a fashion god.”
Yeah, anything can be misunderstood when taken out of context, but come on. These appear to be emails to his employees who were panicking and looking for guidance…and when you’re in charge of an organization which is supposed to be saving lives, you don’t worry about dressing to impress or whining about what a tough job it is. Unbelievable…but this is what you can expect of unqualified presidential cronies appointed to high positions.
