Brownie Hearings

I caught about an hour worth of Brownie hearings on CSPAN as I was driving back from D.C. I was sort of in awe by his approach, which seemed to be stupid. He shifted the entire blame of Hurricane Katrina's catastrophic aftermath on the LA politicians.

At one point when he was questioned (I don't remember who was questioning him), he claimed that Governor Blanco excluded Orleans parish from her request for emergency assistance. Does anyone else know if that claim is credible?

I heard Rep. Christopher Shays basically ripped him a new one for failing to be Guiliani.

And, of course, Brown bemoaned how "emaciated" FEMA was since he became the head

What are others' reactions?
