The Michael Brown Sympathy Card

Posted By on Thu, Jan 8, 2009 at 10:02 PM

It's a testament to the depth of feeling we all have for Michael "Heckuvajob" Brown that three of us here raced to the blog to share the news that he had to be evacuated due to the wildfires outside Boulder.

Brownie's okay, but he's sleeping on a friend's couch at the moment. Won't you sign his card in the comments?

Heckuva job, Brownie

Courtesy of Wonkette, former Arabian horse association president and FEMA director Michael Brown is caught up in another disaster. Thankfully, he was evacuated on time. But his nose for disaster is almost biblical in nature. The Colorado Independent has the story. On a side note, the story mentions the figure of Hurricane Katrina causing $81 billion in damages. Too bad Katrina couldn't wait. That's just the ante for what the federal government now drops on failing financial institutions (Lehman Bros. excluded) that are victims not of nature, but of their own bad management.

Ex-FEMA head Brown evacuated in Boulder wildfire

Hurricane Katrina victims take note. Michael Brown is safe.

A series of wind-whipped wildfires north of Boulder, Colo., have forced the evacuation of more than 11,500 residents — among them vilified ex-Federal Emergency Management Agency head Michael Brown.

Here's Brownie discussing the horrifying ordeal, which ends with Brownie sleeping not in a trailer for 3 years...but on a friend's couch. "We hope you can get some rest!" says the concerned interviewer to Brownie.

"No worries on that count!" thinks New Orleans.

The headline reads: Ex-FEMA head Brown evacuated in Boulder wildfire

And it's not even from The Onion.

There has to be a way to insert this into every English dictionary under the word 'irony'. There just has to. Heck of a job, cosmos.
