What amazes me about l’affaire Brownie is that is reveals how indecisive the Bush White House is. Why torture the puppy and relieve Brown of his Katrina duties only to have him “quit” a few days later? What was gained versus just getting rid of him in one swift cut? Why be indecisive when indecisiveness is exactly the problem with the government’s response to the storm? If local and state governments hadn’t screwed up, too, I think the downfall of the Bush legacy wouldn’t be Iraq after all, but Katrina. There’s still time.
