A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

Benefit of the Doubt 

Okay, I'm going to give Michael Brown the benefit of the doubt about his tenure with the city of Edmond, OK. If fact, I'll promote him to Manager or Director of Emergency Services if you want. Of course, then I'll ask how this qualifies him to head FEMA given that the population of Edmond was less than 70,000 in 2000. Presumably, it was fewer 20+ years ago. How in the world could this "real world" experience, two decades later, translate into qualifications to head an emergency agency as large and complex as FEMA which serves the disaster needs of 280 million people?
