Michael Brown: Bush's Latest Masterpiece
It must be very strange to be President Bush. A man of extraordinary vision and brilliance approaching to genius, he can't get anyone to notice. He is like a great painter or musician who is ahead of his time, and who unveils one masterpiece after another to a reception that, when not bored, is hostile.

Today, the grossly incompetent but politically well connected director of FEMA, Michael Brown, was relieved of his duties overseeing the Katrina relief effort. I can't say that I can fully appreciate the "rare genius" and "extraordinary vision" required to appoint a man with absolutely no experience; a resume thinner than my own; who couldn't even keep his job at the International Arabian Horse Association to head the nation's primary disaster management agency post-9/11, but what do I know. I do know that another terrorist attack is inevitable and we wanted Brown there when that eventuality occurred. But not anymore.
You see, Brown was a brilliant choice to begin with, but now he is no longer the right choice and only a genius like Bush can understand such matters of chronology. Perhaps he has served his valuable purpose for New Orleans and it is time to move on. Maybe Brown will take over some other vital Federal agency in need of his skills. Who am I to try to divine the wisdom of such an intellect as Bush's. I just stand in awe.
