Brown’s Soft Landing

When “Brownie” resigned as head of FEMA, I remarked to several friends that it wouldn’t be long before he was hired as a consultant for some other Bush-friendly firm or organization. But even I didn’t think that would be… FEMA: Daily Kos: Guess Who’s a New FEMA Consultant.

CBS News correspondent Gloria Borger reports that Michael Brown, who recently resigned as the head of the FEMA, has been rehired by the agency as a consultant to evaluate it’s response following Hurricane Katrina.

No one in this administration fails. There’s always a soft cushy landing (or Presidential Medal of Freedom if you REALLY fuck up; if the PR wasn’t so bad over Katrina, I’ll bet Brownie would have gotten one of those, too).

Tell that to the tens of thousands of people who’ve lost their jobs while their big employers enjoyed government tax breaks. Who’s providing a soft landing for them?
