Heckuva Job Brownie Has Nerve to Mock Superdome Blackout

Unless you’ve been trapped under something heavy for the past 24 hours, you already know that there was a power outage at the Super Bowl last night (which was held in the Superdome in Nawlins).

Now guess who thought it would be a good idea to tweet snark about the power outage?

This motherfucker right here:

That’s right — ol’ Heckuva Job Brownie had the unmitigated gall to tweet Superdome-related snark, and then to defend it on his radio show.

Via Yahoo! News:

 His Superdome tweet also drew criticism, but Brown, now a talk radio host, did not back down.

“Come see the water line marks on the street signs by my church and see how funny Katrina/Dome tweets are,” Twitter user Duris Holmes wrote.

“I saw them,” Brown replied. “Blanco Nagin refused to look”—a reference to former Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco and former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin.

“Screen shots on iPad,” he later tweeted. “Great for capturing vitriol that’s later deleted from Twitter feed.”

Brown added: “Blocking is quite useful, too.”

It’s not the first time since his FEMA resignation that Brown’s been at the center of a controversy. Last fall, Brown criticized President Barack Obama for responding to Hurricane Sandy too early.

I need Michael Brown to stop talking… forever.

    Fucking up in a way that conveniently harms the “surplus population” of non-Repukes, combined with monumental braggadocio and callous arrogance about it, makes him a right-wing hero.
    And being held acccountable for his massive fuckups makes him a “martyr.” Under Bush Assministration ideology he’s practically Gandhi.

But until they are, I want these people, and Heckuva Job Brownie to be given the largest megaphones anyone can find. People need to be reminded just how awful these people are, and putting them on public display is the best available way of doing so.

    Don’t be dissing horse feces; it helps things grow, which is more than can be said of Michael Brown. He’s more like Agent Orange: something that kills what it touches and leaves behind a generations-long toxic legacy.

    The more I think about this, the more I’m convinced this was a preemptive thing. Brown knew that any bad event at the Superdome was going to bring up Katrina, so he decided to get the first licks in. Better to have the story be about what a jerk he is for bringing it up than how he deserves to be run out of polite society for his incompetence in dealing with the hurricane.

    Wait, did I say Jamie Gorelick? No, that wasn’t her name. Who was it again? It’s right on the tip of my scary-smart tongue ….

    Actually, for a debacle the magnitude of Katrina, I think seppuku might be more appropriate. Not that HJB would have the class (I almost said “guts,” but people might think I was making a pun or something) to do it.

    Loyalty to the Bush family was the primary qualifying characteristic of any Dubya appointment. That’s how we ended up with…

    Attorney General Alberto Gonzales

    FEMA Director Michael Brown

    and almost Supreme Court Justice Harriet Miers

    gf120581 says:

    @Cacti: Very true and it was carried out to disastrous extremes. In Iraq, for example, officials in the Green Zone were not hired for their qualifications, they were hired for their loyalty to the Bush administration and the GOP. That’s how instead of capable people we got complete fucktards like Dan Senor (the little neo-con shitheel who had Romney’s ear on foreign policy) running things over there and completely fucking things up.

    Brown was maybe the worst, although Gonzales made a pretty good run for the money with the U.S. attorney scandal. (Miers never got in a position to do any real damage.) Brown probably gets top honors because he let a whole city drown and still acted like a belligerent asshole who did nothing wrong afterward.

    STOP talking? Why in the world would you want him to stop talking? Let the fucker talk! This guy is not a major Republican player any longer, he barely ever was, especially since he grotesquely mishandled his responsibilities during Katrina and while not disowned by the Republicans, they’re surely aware of how kryptonite-y he is in the public’s mind.

    And every time he speaks he reminds the normal part of America just how horrifyingly inept Republicans are, how they’re only interested in power for power’s sake, which is why they put their buddies into positions of power even though that person hasn’t the least bit of qualifications for the job, and no real love of governance. That’s good for the side that values rationality and common sense, which at the moment is the Democrats.

    Play on, Brownie.

    Yes, because they remembered that so well in 2010. Which is kind of amazing, because something like 21 years months had passed since W left office. That’s like, 10 whole generations, right? Well, mayfly generations.

    To paraphrase Mencken: “No one ever went broke underestimating the attention span of the American public.”
