When your side is telling you someone needs to be sacked, listen.

Although the delay was not entirely the fault of the Bush Administration, Brown's complacency clearly didn't help. And his bumbling statements after the hurricane struck have not inspired confidence.

This is not the time to give a weak performer the benefit of the doubt. The FEMA director's role in the ongoing recovery effort is too important to be entrusted to a clueless political hack with such poor judgment.

Rather than praise Michael Brown, Bush should fire him.

Unfortunately, Dubya values loyalty over competency too often for his - and the country's - own good. While the media jackals are howling for Team Dubya blood - Tim Russert's first question to Chertoff this morning was, "Will you resign?" - SAYING the poor response isn't acceptable and then DOING nothing to remediate the causes means you're talking loud, but saying nothing.

Of course, this is the same dumbass who gave George "Slam Dunk" Tennet a medal instead of a cap to the dome.

More interesting question: If Darths Rove and Cheney are controlling things from behind the curtain, WTF is going on now, leaving Dubya looking weak? Where have they been lately?
