Would YOU Hire Brownie?!

Note from the LuapHacim, 11/14/2012: The views expressed in this post do not necessarily reflect my current beliefs and convictions. Even if they do, I would almost certainly express them in different words today. Time changes people, and I am not exempt. Nonetheless, because of its historical value, I will not modify or remove this post. It tells you (and me) something important about where I've been. Read on at your own peril.

Hiring ex-FEMA chief/current media attention panderer Michael Brown is something I would consider only if I were in very, very dire need of a judge for my Arabian horse show. (And even then only if I had no particular attachment to the horses.) So I haven't a clue why anyone would actually pay this man money to be a consultant for them... unless, perhaps, they want to understand how utterly, mind-bogglingly insane the freaking FEMA people are. Nonetheless, it apparently pays well to be a washed-up, pitiful, failed scapegoat of the executive branch:
The bottom line, he said in an interview Tuesday from Michigan, where he was working for one client, is that he expects to be earning far more than the $148,000 he was paid annually as FEMA director.
"I will be making more," he said. "Significantly more."
Why am I making $10,000 a year while Michael Brown is basically getting people to randomly throw money at him? I should get out of the GTA business and into something much more lucrative: rank ineptitude.

I would randomly throw money at you... you'd have to be a whole lot closer, but I'd still do it just for the principle of the thing!
