Indeed, Brown Must Go

I join the call of Andrew Sullivan, Jeff Jarvis, and others that FEMA director Michael Brown must be fired, immediately, for his mishandling of the Katrina disaster.

Now yes, everywhere I went this weekend people blamed the hurricane squarely on the shoulders of Bush, showing once again that people will always blame anything and everything on their political opponents- I saw Republicans do the same to the governor and mayor of Louisiana and New Orleans. I had never heard of Michael Brown until last week, but I can say based on his performance that he's gotta go. Especially since he only got his job 'cause a Bush crony was his college roommate.

Yeah, Brown (AND Chertoff) should be fired for gross imcompetence but ultimately Bush assigned these guys -THAT plus his obliviousness to the developing tragedy screams for accountability from the top on down. This kind of cavelier attitude toward governance is truly appalling. I don't let our Commander in Chief off the hook this time.

Let's all chip in and make sure that if you search for Brown on Google that "Brown must go" pops up first!
