The Gross National Debt

Thursday, November 03, 2005

(Cross-posted at Daily Kos.)

I'm sure it's not news to anyone at this point in the day that additional emails have been released, emails written during the time that Michael Brown was "handling" the post-Katrina disaster that unfolded.  

The email in question and the inspiration for this entry:

On August 29, the day of the storm, Brown exchanged e-mails about his attire with Taylor, Melancon said. She told him, "You look fabulous," and Brown replied, "I got it at Nordstroms. ... Are you proud of me?"

An hour later, Brown added: "If you'll look at my lovely FEMA attire, you'll really vomit. I am a fashion god," according to the congressman.

My emphasis added.  So in addition to the "FEMA look" and the "Rolled-up Sleeve Look" and the "Official Photo Look", I have found some other looks I think suit Mr. Brown.

Make the jump.

Brownie was very concerned in some emails as to whether or not he should roll up his sleeves when making on-camera appearances.  The solution?  This gem of a short-sleeved shirt.  It says, "I don't know what I'm doing but maybe my shirt will distract you."

When people needed to be reassured that FEMA was there and was going to save them, Brownie should adopt this wonderful modern-day "rough rider" look.

When it comes to an outfit for riding in the back of the humvee with the President, Brownie should go for the hip but work-wise Park Avenue jogging suit.  It says, "I'm ready for hard work."

Brownie has many sides to his personality.  This choice of boxers shows his soft, sensitive side.  People couldn't possibly believe he didn't care about all those people at the Superdome and trapped in their attics with this choice of underwear.

Of course, Brownie needs action-oriented clothings as well, something that says he's ready to spring into action witout the uncomfortable creep that boxers sometimes have.

Brownie needs some downtime, too.  Exercise is good for the head, releasing chemicals to counteract the stress of handling such a large-scale emergency.

Of course, it's imperative that Brownie stop and eat to keep his energy up.  And, given the difficulty of securing a reservation in Baton Rouge after the hurricane, Brownie needs to put his best foot forward.  This suit is just the ticket.

And thank goodness one of Brownie's PR assistants thought to pack his figure-correction underclothes.  After all - eating is "hard work" and Brownie doesn't want to look bloated for the camera.

Brownie ends a difficult day of choosing clothes, talking on camera, emailing, swimming and eating.  Because he misses home, he's brought his favorite "snuggler" so he can curl up in his soft bed, all warm and cozy, and stop thinking about all the bad people who expect him to do something as serious as... his job.

And finally, Brownie wakes, refreshed, bathed, comfortable and fed and heads out for another day of trying to look like he knows what he's doing and that he's ready to handle this crisis once and for all.


I'm an awful photo editor - I hope these at least invoke a giggle.

WHAT an ASSHOLE this guy is.

Great photos. I agree Brownie is a douchebag, except that's an insult to douchebags everywhere.
