The Scapegoat Resigns

I'm watching Fox News right now and they're reporting via the AP that Michael Brown of FEMA has resigned. Obviously Mr. Brown was an inept pick to head FEMA considering he had not only no experience but that he actually "padded" emergency response experience on his resume.

I'm still astounded that that's not criminal, considering the consequences of that lie. But much of the responsibility also lays at the doorstep of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. This is supposedly the CEO administration and one of the very trite cliches that circulates throughout the corporate world is that "you're only as good as the people you hire." So how about some accountability from the chief executive officer? You have about as much chance as that as Britney Spears looking like the Virgin Mary. While the administration may be virulently evangelical, today's Yom Kippur in the oval office and it's covered in the remains of Michael Brown.
