I used to give Michael Brown the benefit of a doubt.
He might have been a mid-level pencil pushing politico who got a little lucky and landed himself a government position further up the foodchain than he deserved. Hey, it happens all the time.

But I am taking back my doubt right now.
Brown is an ass and an idiot.
