I’ve stayed out of most of the Katrina mess

But this little bit from “Brownie” shows me that the Bush administration really didn’t get it.

The September 2005 e-mail reads: “I did hear of one reference to you, at the Cabinet meeting yesterday. I wasn’t there, but I heard someone commented that the press was sure beating up on Mike Brown, to which the president replied, ‘I’d rather they beat up on him than me or Chertoff.’ “

The sender adds, “Congratulations on doing a great job of diverting hostile fire away from the leader.”

CNN has been unable to verify the authenticity of the e-mail, but the White House designation “eop.gov” is part of the sender’s e-mail address, indicating it came from the Executive Office of the President.

Instead of worrying about the fact it was being politicized they were happy FEMA got burned
