The O-o-o-o-o-o-ld Heave-Ho

Pundits left and right, from the generally entertaining Andrew Sullivan to the generally clueless Michelle Malkin, are calling for the head of FEMA honcho Michael Brown, who by most accounts is a minimally-qualified lawyer who got canned from his last job in the private sector for incompetence and landed the FEMA gig by virtue of having picked the right college roommate.

(Reason's Julian Sanchez says since Brown is been lauded by W. for the bang-up job he's doing, he may have to get a Presidential Medal of Freedom before he goes, a-la George Tenet).

Personally, I think it's high time we take the advice of Don Imus (as well as George Carlin) and turn over homeland security to Rudy Giuliani (or, to paraphrase Carlin, if ya wanna get the job done, give it to an Italian from Brooklyn...).

As for the fate of Michael Brown, my guess is that he'll follow in the grand tradition of right-wing screwups and get his own nationally syndicated radio talk show...

UPDATE: In the immortal words of Harry Kalas, Michael Brown is outta-heeeeere...
