Michael Brown, you look fabulous!

The Congressional panel investigating the federal "response" to Hurricane Katrina has started complaining loudly that the documents they requested from the administration on September 30 have yet to be delivered. The Republican Representative heading the panel is threatening to subpoena the e-mails and other correspondence they want. He says, ""We are not going to be stonewalled here. I will continue to press the administration for full compliance with our requests as soon as possible."

But the committee has gotten a whole lot of emails between Michael Brown, FEMA's disgraced former leader, and his staff! Here are some of the calls to action that Brown sent and received as our nation faced one of its worst natural disasters in history:

Augsut 29, the day after Katrina hit:
Cindy Taylor, Deputy Director of Public Affairs at FEMA: My eyes must be deceiving me. You look fabulous - and I'm not talking about the makeup.

Brown: I got it at Nordstroms ... Are you proud of me? If you'll look at my lovely FEMA attire you'll really vomit. I am a fashion god.

August 30
Brown to staff: Do you know of anyone who dog-sits. If you know of any responsible kids, let me know. They can have the house to themselves Th-Su.

But Brown was suffering too during those nightmarish days. On August 29, he wrote to Taylor, "Can I quit now? Can I come home?"

Poor beleaguered Brownie. At least he got his wish.
