Go Team!

If there was any doubt, I think it's becoming pretty clear that our federal government is now running with any idea that sounds good at the time.

From an AP article hosted at MSNBC

"FEMA Workers Masquerade as Reporters"

The general idea: FEMA had their own staffers lob easy questions at their press conference regarding the recent fires around these parts, rather than risk looking like a bunch of knobs again in the light of all the recent post-Katrina comparisons.

"The White House scolded the Federal Emergency Management Agency on Friday for staging a phony news conference about assistance to victims of wildfires in southern California."
Really. Scolded. Wow. Good thing they didn't have to resort to something drastic like making FEMA stand in the corner for 15 minutes, or go to bed without its supper.
My favorite vile quote of the article:
"Keehner said senior leadership is considering whether a punishment is necessary."
Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job.
