    How was he ever employed in the first place?

    So the whole of his recent experience was what.....

    "Judges and Stewards Commissioner" for the International Arabian Horses Association.

    I understand political appointments but shouldn't they have some practical knowledge of what they are over? God forbid you find a republican fire chief or chief of police. Surely there were some Republicans that had some experience in emergency services.

    Someone is finally listening to me.

    FEMA director Michael Brown being sent back to Washington; Homeland Security Director Chertoff to announce new leader for on-the-ground Katrina relief efforts, senior administration official tells CNN.

    Why is it that many intelligent people in the United States are working extremely hard to secure jobs, and have difficult times doing so because companies screen many qualified canidates and eventually select what they believe is the best one, but when it comes to the people that run the country this process doesn't really exist???

    I guess that's why when a company hires someone's son or friend, everyone blames it on politics :rolleyes:

    LOL. Hopefully his departure won't delay the rebuilding of Trent Lott's porch.
