The Anchoress Nails It, As Usual

      Some excerpts:
      Want to castigate FEMA director Michael Brown and accuse the Bushies of Republican Cronyism?  Well, you can, and you’d be perfectly right to.  But then you have to recall that he was confirmed by a voice vote when the congress was controlled by Democrats [sic; should be 'the Senate'], and then you have to wonder what favors were exchanged by both parties in order to bring this mediocrity into his job. . . .

      Want to kvetch that FEMA should never have been melded into the Department of Homeland Security?  Okay…but again, that action was accomplished by a bi-partisan act of congress (one which - it must be pointed out - now-critical voices helped to vote in). . . .

      WE are, my dear friends, part of the problem.  WE contribute to all of this intertwined, incestuous political backscratching, playacting, cronyism and pork-funding, because we’ve put up with it, thinking it all a basically harmless, unfixable nuisance.  “It’s just the way things are done,” we said.  You want someone to blame?  Have a mirror handy?


      Read the whole thing.
