Even more heckuva job

My fellow Americans, I give you the man once in charge of your safety (and still getting a FEMA paycheck).

The Smoking Gun has some e-mails that Michael Brown sent and received during the Katrina crisis. While New Orleans descended into death and chaos, the head of FEMA was obsessing over how he looked on TV and trying to get a dogsitter. He was advised by his press secretary, Sharon Worthy:

Please roll up the sleeves of your shirt...all shirts. Even the President rolled his sleeves to just below the elbow.

In this crises
(sic) and on TV you just need to look more hard-working...ROLL UP THE SLEEVES!

He's also not a very good typist.
