SEND IN THE FEMA CLOWNS

Kicking the little guy when he’s down is as American as apple pie baseball or gas guzzling Chevy SUVs. We like to think that we love the underdog but that’s not true with the possible exception of sports. Anyway Chief FEMA Clown David Paulison has decided to crack down on minor grifters in the wake of yesterday’s Congressional hearing about waste and fraud. Why? Two words: porn and Hooters. That’s what some of the FEMA dosh was used for.  Kicking around small timers who *may* have chiseled $1 billion from FEMA (visit the Wetbank Guide for some unconventional wisdom about this) is a helluva lot easier than going after the Shaw Group and other big ass contractors who raped FEMA post-K and then bragged about it.

Finally Maitri has posted a detailed rant about this at the New Orleans Metroblog thingee. Thanks for allowing me to keep it short dawlin…
