    Michael Brown Spins the Gulf Oil Spill Catastrophe

    Former Bush FEMA Director, Michael "Heckuva job, Brownie" Brown, tells
    Neil Cavuto on FOX News and repeats it in an interview on CNN with
    Anderson Cooper:

    "This is exactly what they want, because now he [President Obama]
    can pander to the environmentalists and say, 'I'm going to shut it down
    because It's too dangerous,' while Mexico and China and everybody else
    drills in the Gulf. We're going to get shut down."

    So that's what our political discourse has sunk to? Discredited figures
    like Brownie are on TV jockeying for partisan gain, milking a national
    tragedy that is probably going to change forever the ecosystem of
    the Gulf Coast? Brownie uses a catastrophe that threatens many of
    the nation's most important waterways and will probably be a grave
    setback to any national economic recovery to score pitiful political
    points against the Democrats? Who are these people? Just when you
    think the right-wing echo chamber cannot sink any lower, once again,
    they surprise you. It's amazing that Michael Brown even shows his face
    in public. I guess being that rich and that well connected means you
    never have to say you're sorry.

    Michael Brown, this miserable, lying, incompetent, horse judging, silver
    spoon sucking, aging frat boy is on television spewing the idea that
    the ongoing catastrophic release of oil in the Gulf of Mexico, like any
    other event, can be plugged into the right-wing noise machine and
    used for political gain?

    The Astroturf groups are in overdrive trying to either deflect blame
    from the oil corporations or somehow frame the coverage of the disaster,
    as Brownie is trying to do, in a way where it cuts against the Democrats
    and people who care about the environment.

    But it's the rhetoric of failure.

    Brownie has obviously awaited this day since he left government in
    disgrace after Hurricane Katrina when he could darken our television
    screens once again with his pasty white visage and make the rounds
    because his Republican connections give him access to mainstream
    TV news shows where he can excrete his vile lies about President
    Obama and people who care about the environment.

    Unlike Katrina when the southern wing of the Republican Party,
    which at the time included the Bush Administration, could blow
    off the crisis because the people doing most of the suffering were
    black - today's spill in the Gulf is very different. This time around
    it's going to hit a lot of those white Redneck cracker barrels who
    voted for George W. Bush and by extension Heckuva Job Brownie
    too, (as well as Haley Barbour and Bobby Jindal and the McCain/Palin
    ticket in 2008).

    This time around a lot of white folks on the Gulf Coast are going to
    lose their livelihoods because they were stupid enough and racist
    enough to vote for the "Drill, Baby, Drill" crowd, which is nothing more
    than a collection of radicals who despise any constraints on the
    ability of corporations to exploit the land, labor, and resources of
    this country. The ordinary white folks down South who hate "Big
    Government" even to the point of opting out of health care reform
    and the stimulus now want "Big Government" to save their sorry
    Southern asses from the same corporate elites they helped put
    in power during the glorious Bush years.

    Michael Brown is like a ghost from a past that is best forgotten.
    He and others like him are desperate pathogens clinging to a dying
    host called the Republican Party. Please keep it up Brownie. You are
    doing a heckuva job! -- like your racist brethren in Arizona who have
    shown Latino voters where the GOP stands, you're doing a heckuva
    job galvanizing votes among people who care about the environment
    for the Democrats.

    I know a very senior BP executive and she says this problem is WAY more serious than we are being told. It could put the Exxon Valdez disaster in Alaska look like a minor ecological glitch.

    Brownie is the LAST person who should be jumping into the fray about a disaster in the Gulf.

    I understand why Fox News would give Brownie a platform, but why would Anderson Cooper even give him the time of day?
