Disaster recovery for the 21st Century has arrived.
Mizz Snarkity Snark hears that Massachusetts Governor and budding Event Planner Mitt Romney and his merry band of campaign promises staged a disaster recovery effort worthy of the finest performance of Swan Lake.
Since Team Romney felt it was too soon to put their boss man back in campaign mode, Mr MR got morphed into a disaster recovery specialist for a day or so.
Peek into Disaster Recovery Post-FEMA
MSS figures this is the Mitt’s FEMA replacement plan:
All political candidates on the campaign trail during a federal disaster will stop kissing babies immediately, will muster all troops to the nearest discount warehouse or big box store, buy a face-saving number of relief supplies, and stage them in such a way that motivational photo ops can be printed up and published.
State, local and national news crews and all available weather broadcasters are to be deployed everywhere for the duration to observe all relief events and act as repeaters and to drum up interest.
Meanwhile, local first responders unaffiliated with the former FEMA are free to do their best to actually render assistance to disaster victims and communities. When You Hear Hoofbeats, Watch Out for Excrement
In recognition of the unmistakeable odor of equine droppings, MSS reserves a special “WTF Were You Thinking” award for the entire Team Romney team. Go, Team.
MSS is rather sure she hears hoofbeats in the distance, not too far from the campaign trail.
Much love to each of you. Especially first-responders and hopefully not future former FEMA folk.
