FEMA: "We're Truly Sorry... That We Got Caught"

Add to that headline: "And we'll be more careful (not to get caught) next time!"

Ahem. Did FEMA think no one would notice that they held a press conference sans the press?

US agency apologizes for news conference on fires

WASHINGTON, Oct 26 (Reuters) - The U.S. government's main disaster-response agency apologized on Friday for having its employees pose as reporters in a hastily called news conference on California's wildfires that no news organizations attended.

This time they can't blame Heckuvajob Brownie, either.

No actual reporter attended the news conference in person, agency spokesman Aaron Walker said.

Questions included this zinger: "Are you happy with FEMA's response so far?"

And check out White House spokesmodel Dana Perino's idiotic handling of an actual reporter's question during yesterday's briefing:

Q Will anybody be reprimanded?

MS. PERINO: You'll have to ask FEMA.

By the way, the answer to the question (Q Who's responsible?) is...

Michael "Lapse of Judgment" Chertoff.

Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
