"Brownie"

Mike "Brownie" Brown has resigned, to be replaced by David "Duct Tape" Paulison, CNN.

Keith Olbermann's blog:

And his departure was not even unattended by confusion. In Brown’s statement, he wrote, “As I told the President, it is important that I leave now.” But when first asked about it during his tour of Mississippi, Mr. Bush said he had no details, hadn’t talked to Brown or Homeland Security chief Chertoff, and, “maybe you know something I don’t know.” Later, press secretary Scott McClellan said that the President had already known about the resignation — he just hadn't known that it had been made public.

And he was already just minutes away from naming Brown’s successor: Duct Tape Man.


Poll data is still troubling for Bush, in this CNN story, but this is quite interesting:

Seventy percent of respondents said they favored forming an independent panel to study the government response to the storm.


That would run against the plans of the administration to clean up the political mess they have made for themselves.

Now some odd ball stuff:

Judge John Roberts is profiled in the Harvard Crimson, with a great pic. LINK.

New York Times story on Yahoo! interesting trip into more diverse media, exploiting all the tools available to the web and inching into a foothold in more traditional media. And, moreover, it features a prominent war correspondent. Interesting.

Did you see the video of Dick Cheney being told to go F himself? Recall his immediate reaction when asked if he's been getting a lot of that. The same thing happens here with Bush.

First they lie and then deny knowing anything about it. Very interesting first response when put on the spot. Also very telling of their true nature.
