On Tuesday, former FEMA head Michael Brown appeared in his first post-FEMA interview on The Colbert Report, the vicious parody of right-wing pundit shows. I was surprised that few of the lefty bloggers were mentioning it. I browsed around the net, looking for summaries or opinions, to see if the interview was worth tracking down and watching. A few comments claimed that Colbert “asked the hard questions”. Frankly, I intended this post to be a “did anyone catch that interview?” post, to see if I should bother. But I found it online easily, so decided to kill the 7 minutes.
Long story short, Brown claims that he worked his hardest to rescue Katrina’s victims, that they were doing a good job that the media happened to miss, that Michael Chertoff and the Department of Homeland Security were to blame, and that Brown himself had been trying to reform FEMA from the inside for 2 years.
Y’see, he’s not an incompetent fuck, he’s a hero!
