You're doing a heckuva job, Brownie-- at stopping the buck.

In a story out today, we learn the real reason why President Bush thought that Michael Brown was doing a 'heckuva job' after Katrina.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The former emergency management chief who quit amid widespread criticism over his handling of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina said he received an e-mail before his resignation stating President Bush was glad to see the Oval Office had dodged most of the criticism....

The e-mail stated that Bush was relieved that Brown -- and not Bush or Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff -- was bearing the brunt of the flak over the government's handling of Katrina.

Yup, be glad that someone else further down the chain is taking the heat. That's leadership for you. I guess George Bush is no Harry Truman.
