FEMA'S Philbin Has No More Explaining To Do

John "Pat" Philbin, the former FEMA spokesman whose final days on that job were spiced up by a fake news briefing, has now lost his next job: director of public affairs for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

It seemed to me too easy a punchline that the vilified Philbin was going to segue from a PR fiasco to the ultimate PR-challenged agency, even though the move had been done deal. I guess the irony was not lost on his new boss either.

My full take on the briefing fiasco -- "It's OK -- I'm a Reporter!" -- is here.
