I’ve been so annoyed with this guy I didn’t even bother learn his name… For the last few days I’ve simply called him “The FEMA Idiot.”
I said a few days ago that if Bush did not replace him I’d lose 25% of my respect for Bush instantly. Apparently Bush didn’t want that to happen:
Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Michael Brown is being removed from his role managing Hurricane Katrina relief efforts, The Associated Press has learned.
Brown is being sent back to Washington from Baton Rouge, where he was the primary official overseeing the federal government’s response to the disaster, according to two federal officials who declined to be identified before the announcement.
This should have happened 3 days ago but I’ll take it.
