"Can I quit now? Can I come home?"

We know that Michael Brown, former FEMA chief, fiddled while Rome burned, that is, ate dinner while New Orleans flooded and people died.

But did you know it was even worse? Yes, the title of this post is a direct quote from an e-mail Brown wrote to a high-ranking FEMA official the day of the hurricane. Want more? A few days later: "I'm trapped now, please rescue me." Then there's some madly narcissistic banter about his clothing.

Read the whole CNN piece (link above). It's truly unfathomable how low Brown sunk -- or, rather, how low he really is. (But, Mr, President, wasn't he doing a bang-up job?)
