You Don't Need To Be A Superhero. But Being Competent Would Be Nice

I find Michael Brown's defense of his response to the New Orleans disaster laughable at best and infuriating at worst.

No one's asking you to be a superhero you self-centered bastard. But you could have at least made some sort of plans to get people out there when everyone knew the hurricane could destroy New Orleans, you could have gotten involved immediately in rescue operations, and you could have informed the president of what was going to be necessary here.

But you know, Michael Brown is the real victim of Katrina.
