"Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job"

This article details some of that “heck of a job” Michael Brown was doing with Katrina.

Fashion advice? Roll up the sleeves to look like you’re working hard? Asking how he can “tweak” some of the problems (presumably to make them seem not quite as bad).

Wow.

Yikes.

I’d be really interested to see his email exchanges with White House staff, especially considering their reticence in offering those up. There must be some pretty damning stuff in there…

Ahh, the sweet fruit of cronyism.

Is this moron still getting paid for “consulting?”

Yes.

Yup $148,000 per year. God bless America.

Wow, I suck at my job for a quarter of that.

Because it bears repeating:

On August 29, the day of the storm, Brown exchanged e-mails about his attire with Taylor, Melancon said. She told him, “You look fabulous,” and Brown replied, “I got it at Nordstroms. … Are you proud of me?”

An hour later, Brown added: “If you’ll look at my lovely FEMA attire, you’ll really vomit. I am a fashion god,” according to the congressman.

Brownie. Fashion god.
