WONKETTE EXCLUSIVE: MICHAEL BROWN CAN READ
Earlier today, we linked to the FEMA job application that misspelled "department." We never meant to give that impression, but it may have read as if we were accusing Michael Brown of the typo in question. In fact, proving conclusively that FEMA's institutional difficulties predated his tenure there, the misspelling was the responsibility of FEMA's HR department. We received an email to that effect earlier today from Michael Brown himself, who says, "those commentators claiming that I can't spell department should back off." We can attest to his correct spelling in both that email and the follow-up. Brown: "And see, it does show that I can actually read!"
We appreciate the candor, but that might've been Brown's only qualification that was never in question.
