Brownie's Revenge

WASHINGTON - Fired FEMA chief Michael Brown rocked the White House yesterday by insisting he alerted top officials that Hurricane Katrina was a looming disaster and said it was "baloney" they didn't immediately know New Orleans was flooding.
Fed up at being what he called a scapegoat, Brown used a Senate hearing to rip his Homeland Security Department bosses who claimed to have been unaware for more than 24 hours of the catastrophe unfolding in New Orleans...

..."Unfortunately, he called me 'Brownie' at the wrong time. Thanks a lot, sir,' Brown said yesterday...

...Bush aides got redder as Brown's testimony wore on. Some shouted at their TVs as he spoke and others insisted they ignored his testimony. 'I've been too busy to watch,' said one Bush aide.

I'm not missing the fine print nor the implications this time.
