Tell us, Brownie. What went through your mind?


"Well first, Katrina seemed like this tiny little thing, you know?"


"And then it hit land, and the problem seemed a little bigger. You know, some flooding, abandoned people. Things like that."


"And then we started hearing about these people in shelters, and I thought, 'Man, somebody should do something about this.'"


"Meanwhile, the media starts putting all these awful images on my television screen, and it turns out the damn hurricane was huge! And then I remembered Bush appointed me to one of these federal positions, see? I kind of wanted to be the ambassador to Luxemburg, and sit around drinking beer and speaking German or whatever it is they speak over there, but instead I was stuck in some agency that I was pretty sure had 'emergency' in the title."


"So I checked and, sure enough, I was working for FEMA! And that's when I said to myself, 'Brownie, you work for this federal emergency thing, and this is a freakin' emergency. Round up the boys, and let's go!' And you better believe I took charge, Mr. Senator."
