I've got to give it to Howard Dean. He asked Chris Matthews the same question I would have after Matthews decided it was a good idea to interview old "heck of a job" Brownie and ask him about his ridiculous comment he made on Fox that Obama wanted the oil spill.

Dean: Well, first of all the question is why is Michael Brown given his track record, on television talking to anybody?

Matthews: Well we inivited him and he came.

Dean: Yeah... well, I mean you know, you can't put every person off the street on television, especially when they're really frankly...

Matthews: Well he was the head of FEMA for all those years. It wasn't like we just came up with the guy.

Dean: Exactly... precisely the point... precisely the point and look what they did. So he may have been reflecting on how things were run in the previous White House but I don't think he has much knowledge of how they are running this White House.

Howard, I feel the same way every time I see anyone from the Bush administration on television.

Can you help us out?
