Investigating Oneself

Is it me, or does it seem like Brownie consulting with FEMA on investigations and extracting lessons learned would be like a person caught for cheeting or insider trading conducting their own hearing or grand jury inquery? Truly, the taxpayers are getting screwed by Mr. Brown for the remainder of the thirty days he will be billing us for services rendered:
Q Does the President think it's appropriate that Michael Brown is doing consulting work for FEMA?

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, I think that's a question probably to ask to the Department of Homeland Security; I think that they've responded to it. I think he's only on that for about a 30-day period from the time that he announced his resignation.

Q Does the President think that's okay, that 30 --

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, the President supports Secretary Chertoff and the Department of Homeland Security, and I think they're probably in the best position to answer any questions about it. I'm not sure that you can just simplify it into just a broad statement.

Q Any specific reaction --

MR. McCLELLAN: One of the things that they said that he's focused on is helping them with lessons learned.
