"Brownie: I hate the phrase ‘heckuva job.’"

Paul Bedard at U.S. News recently became Facebook friends with former FEMA director Michael Brown, who lists some of his favorite tv shows as “incessantly flipping between Fox, MSNBC, and all the talking heads.” According to Bedard, Brownie also uses his page to clear the record on his time in the Bush administration:

He’s a long way from President Bush’s disaster plaudit, “Brownie, you’re doin’ a heckuva job,” but he remembers it well, dubbing it his least favorite quote. He follows that up with this advice: “Don’t always believe what you read. Ask me instead.” Apparently, many are. He had about 85 friends two weeks ago, and with some active marketing, he’s nearly topped 225.

Digg It!
