Mike Brown becomes Bush's latest fall guy

Mike Brown (better known to his pals as "Brownie") has resigned as director of FEMA. He turned in the usual cover-the-president's-ass resignation, saying, "I think it's in the best interest of the agency and the best interest of the president to do that and get the media focused on the good things that are going on, instead of me."

Well, at least Brown recognizes that he isn't one of the good things that are going on. But why didn't Bush recognize that before he appointed him? And why didn't Bush fire him once it became clear that he was incompetent? Is it because that would be tantamount to admitting his own incompetence at appointing competent people?
