The Blame Game in Washington...

Former FEMA Director Michael Brown engages in a heated exchange during a Senate hearing Friday.

"Heckofajob" Brownie made it clear that he wasn't going to accept all the blame for the mishandling of the response to Hurricane Katrina.

As docP pointed out in the Comments yesterday, the focus now needs to shift to what can be done to help in reconstructing New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. Unfortunately, most Americans have no idea of the extent of the damage.

Politicians in Washington should accept the invitation to go down to New Orleans to see for themselves.
