Ex-FEMA head to start disaster planning firm
Brown fiercely criticized for agency's slow response to Hurricane Katrina
DENVER - Former FEMA Director Michael Brown, heavily criticized for his agency’s slow response to Hurricane Katrina, is starting a disaster preparedness consulting firm to help clients avoid the sort of errors that cost him his job.

“If I can help people focus on preparedness, how to be better prepared in their homes and better prepared in their businesses — because that goes straight to the bottom line — then I hope I can help the country in some way,” Brown told the Rocky Mountain News for its Thursday editions.

Brown said officials need to “take inventory” of what’s going on in a disaster to be able to answer questions to avoid appearing unaware of how serious a situation is.

Maybe his first client will be the RNC, afterall - they're the ones with the confidence in his abilities... shovelling horse shit.

This, for me, is the most telling part: "avoid appearing unaware"
Not BE AWARE, or BE PREPARED, but to just LOOK like you are aware, and prepare. Because its all about how it looks.

Ass.

Yeah, I read that on the news this morning. I was thinking "Who the hell would employ a man who recently left FEMA for emergency planning?"

Donald Duck? Mr. Magoo?

Huh. Maybe next we'll see Dick Cheney opening a business to profit from rebuilding Iraq, after leading the invasion to destroy Iraq in the first place.

Oh, wait...

Oy! I'm struck speechless by the absurdity of it all. All he'll probably make millions doing it, too. Grrrr!!!

Disgusting. Scum always rises to the top.

No one better than a walking, talking disaster on two legs to be advising those loyal Repugnantcans on how to do disasters RIGHT. But he'll probably have issues with his own management of the firm, and will quietly give himself a big severance package with a confidentiality agreement...then he won't have to explain in public why he fired himself from his own firm.

Oh, this is precious. Just too precious for words.
