Shame and Irony: Both Still Dead

Have you heard that Mike "FEMA" Brown in starting a disaster preparedness consulting firm?

Shock and Awe.

What next? Rumsfeld retires and opens a counterinsurgency school?


  1. But the gem is that it seems to be an image-disaster consulting firm. From Tennessee Guerilla Women (

    "B. Tokin' Brownie's disaster consulting business will aim to help other fatcat CEO's avoid the magic Brownie's own disasterous fate:

    "'You have to do it with candor. To do it otherwise gives you no credibility,' Brown said Wednesday. 'I think people are curious: My gosh, what was it like? The media just really beat you up. You made mistakes. I don't want to be in that situation. How do I avoid that?'"

    Michael B. Tokin' Brownie claims that his parents are proud of him and that he has already signed up several companies as clients."

    To any of these potential clients: caveat emptor!!

    Seen this,

    "A key element of the drawdown plans, not mentioned in the President’s public statements, is that the departing American troops will be replaced by American airpower. Quick, deadly strikes by U.S. warplanes are seen as a way to improve dramatically the combat capability of even the weakest Iraqi combat units."

    The new 'Nam is moving to the Arc Light phase.

  3. Yeah, William. I plan to post something on that later today. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
