NEWSFLASH: Michael Brown fired

Well, that only took two weeks! How many people died because of his stupidity...

From the AP
Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Michael Brown is being removed from his role in managing the Bush administration's Hurricane Katrina relief efforts and is returning to Washington.

Brown, who has been under fire for the federal government's slow response to the storm that devastated much of the Gulf Coast region, will be replaced by Coast Guard Vice Adm. Thad W. Allen, who was overseeing New Orleans relief and rescue efforts.

Asked if he was being made a scapegoat for a federal relief effort that has drawn widespread and sharp criticism, Brown told The Associated Press after a long pause: "By the press, yes. By the president, No."

A scapegoat? His resume says it all.

UPDATE: Brown wasn't fired from his position, just relieved. He's still the head idiot in charge of FEMA as the President still has confidence in him.
