Do you remember noted United States’ national embarrassment Michael Brown? You know, the director of FEMA during Katrina? The legend of failure responsible for untold human misery in New Orleans? Well he has some thoughts about President Obama’s response to Hurricane Sandy. Are you ready? They’re pretty special, as quoted by the Denver Westword:

“One thing he’s gonna be asked is, why did he jump on [the hurricane] so quickly and go back to D.C. so quickly when in…Benghazi, he went to Las Vegas?” Brown says. “Why was this so quick?… At some point, somebody’s going to ask that question…. This is like the inverse of Benghazi.”

Except that it isn’t. At all. Maybe just maybe it’s the inverse of that other really wet thing, that Gulf Coast storm that claimed the lives of 1,833 people. How fun is it going to be when President Romney gets around to appointing clownfish like “Brownie” everywhere he can?
