A Heckuva Job 

I wasn't actually looking for the best response to yesterday's revelations that former FEMA director Michael Brown was infinitely more intersted in optics than in hydraulics, but I stumbled across the best response anyway:
In an only-slightly unfair Bloomberg article on how Michael Brown’s emails show him concerned with his reputation and clothing when he might have been focusing on responding to Katrina (the unfair part is to tweak him for looking for a sitter for his dog – was he supposed to let it starve?), there is this sentence: “Brown didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.” No, Brownie doesn’t immediately respond to anything; if you kicked him in the balls (and I encourage this experiment), he’d yell in pain a week later.
