Something's hitting the fan (and it ain't flowers)

When Michelle Malkin calls for the resignation or firing of the head of a former cabinet-level position, you KNOW something is terribly wrong in River City.

"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."

Just days ago, Malkin was lambasting the liberals for even SUGGESTING that this catastrophe was preventable, and accusing us of playing dirty politics. Now she, like so many other GOP lackeys, is starting to understand where the future lies- and it doesn't lie with Bush or his administration.

Good luck, Republicans. These next few weeks are going to be quite the trial by fire for you. In my mind, you've already failed at the most basic requirements of government. Lets see if the rest of the country gets that. But when your guard dogs fail to defend you, for the first time in 5 years, you have to recognize that things are NOT good.

PS- did you notice she's quoting the LA Times? Has hell frozen over? Oh no, New Orleans is flooded, and thousands of the poor and disenfranchised are screwed, and America cares. And the best source of information, even for GOP talking heads, is the LA Times.

The best political move would be for Bush to fire Brown. It makes him look like he's accepting some responsibility but also allows him to make Brown a scapegoat and will placate his critics, republicans and democrats alike. I think firing Brown gets Bush off the hotseat way too easily. Don't listen to me. I'm just a grouchy old girl today. Argh.

You can tell the tide was turning against the government when even FOX News was lambasting the administration for their incompetence in this whole disaster.
