In an effort to contrast its rapid response to the San Diego fires from its shameful response to Hurricane Katrina, FEMA decided to hold a press conference.

Only it didn’t really. Instead of holding a real, live press conference like any self-respecting, supposedly-competent federal agency would, Deputy Administrator Vice Admiral Harvey Johnson held a fake press conference instead, complete with pretend reporters and make-believe questions.

For once, I agree with Secretary Chertoff:

I think it was one of the dumbest and most inappropriate things I’ve seen since I’ve been in government.
