Surverys are always such a B.S. statistic, though. It is just that, a statistic. It also can't be incredibly accurate consider the fact that I, along with every person in this world I happen to know either through the internet or real life, never even had a chance to vote. Who votes on this stuff?

Someone in marketing told me once , The poll takers are registered with the polling site . Like CNN might have a group they call for the poll . Has anyone met a Nielson ??? They have that rating system .

CNN is airing a specail now... apparently FEMA paid for the disaster prepardness drill there in New Orleans with a cat 3 hurricane hitting officials all over participated including a rep from the white house. They said they knew they would need to have 1000 shelters to house the city and to be able to feen and tend to them for 100 days.

Watched part of that , and almost lost my dinner .

No doubt in my mind that the hurricane should be called Katrina Brown .

I am beginning to get the feeling that Chertoff was also responsible , the homeland security chief . This is an outrage that they knew , dicussed it for 12 days had resources around and then sat and watched .

No dentist is touching these fangs, daddy-o. But in the spirit of goodwill, I shall endorse my portrait for use during the rebuilding process.

In fact, I'll print it up as 8x10's and mail them to personally to Brown and Chertoff. I'll be sure to sign it with a nice nasty lipstick smack ala Rolling Stones logo before mailing.

Embattled FEMA Director Mike Brown Resigns

By RON FOURNIER
The Associated Press
Monday, September 12, 2005

WASHINGTON -- Federal Emergency Management Agency director Mike Brown said Monday he has resigned "in the best interest of the agency and best interest of the president," three days after losing his onsite command of the Hurricane Katrina relief effort.

Brown, under fire for FEMA's performance in the Gulf Coast, said he feared he had become a distraction.

"The focus has got to be on FEMA, what the people are trying to do down there," Brown told The Associated Press.

His decision was not a surprise. Brown was abruptly recalled to Washington on Friday, a clear vote of no confidence from his superiors at the White House and the Homeland Security Department. Brown had been roundly criticized for FEMA's sluggish response to the hurricane, which has caused political problems for Bush and fellow Republicans. He also was accused of padding his resume, which Brown denied Friday.

The president ducked questions about Brown's resignation. "Maybe you know something I don't know. I've been working," the president said to reporters on an inspection tour of damage in Gulfport, Miss. Bush said he planned to talk with Brown's boss, Homeland Security Director Michael Chertoff, from Air Force One on the flight back to Washington.

"There will be plenty of time to figure out what went right and what went wrong," Bush said.

Polls show most Americans believe Bush could have done more to help Katrina's victims, though they also blame leaders of Louisiana and New Orleans. Bush's overall job approval rating is at the lowest point of his presidency.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi called Brown's departure long overdue.

"His resignation is the right thing for the country and for the people of the Gulf Coast states," she said in a statement.

Brown, who said he last talked to Bush five or six days ago, said the resignation was his idea. He spoke Saturday to White House chief of staff Andy Card, who did not request his departure, according to Brown.

"I'm turning in my resignation today," Brown said. "I think it's in the best interest of the agency and the best interest of the president to do that and get the media focused on the good things that are going on, instead of me."

Shortly after Brown was recalled to Washington last week, officials close to the FEMA director said he would probably resign. They said that even before Katrina, Brown had been planning on leaving the administration late this fall to go into the private sector.
