Incompetence is its own reward

By Libby

Via, Digby, this development seems to have been underreported yesterday. Bush and Chertoff were so very upset about the fake FEMA press conference that heads did roll. But not very far.

On Tuesday, while “wildfires raged” in California, FEMA staged a live press conference at which agency staffers posed as journalists and asked softball questions. One of those staffers, Director of External Affairs John “Pat” Philbin, has now resigned. He has instead landed an “amazing opportunity” to head public affairs at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

(Supply your own snark about 'intelligence' here.) I guess the punishment is he doesn't get a Medal of Freedom to go with the new post.
