Michael Brown is absolutely awesome:
"I was as frustrated as everyone" at "the slowness of the response. I was screaming and cussing," Michael Brown told the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, which is probing the government's sluggish response to the disaster.Do you think that as he used the word "abandoned," he grimaced, because he recognized the craziness of what he'd just said? Or did it just go flying out of his mouth with nary a thought to follow it up?
Before Katrina's landfall, he said he had pushed the appropriate officials "to cut every piece of red tape ... to do everything they humanly could to respond to this."
Brown said he views himself as a scapegoat "abandoned" by the Bush administration."
