Somebody wrote the following to Brown:
Wednesday, September 7, 2005
To: Michael Brown
'I did hear of one reference to you, at the Cabinet meeting yesterday. I wasn't there but I heard someone commented that the press was sure beating up on Mike Brown, to which the President replied, "I'd rather they beat up on him than me or Chertoff." Congratulations on doing a great job of diverting hostile fire away from the leader.'
What a guy.
Here's the whole article on CNN.
