MIKE BROWN WATCH….CNN is reporting that FEMA chief Mike Brown has resigned. That’s a shocker, isn’t it?

No word yet on what the official excuse is. Or which loyal GOP lobbying group will promptly find a new job for him.

UPDATE: The AP dispatch is here. As some predicted, the official excuse is that Brown doesn’t want to be a distraction from the important work ahead. “The focus has got to be on FEMA, what the people are trying to do down there,” he said.
