More on Patrick Rhode's Move to NASA

FEMA deputy during Katrina now at NASA, AP

"The hiring of Rhode, a former television reporter who was an advance man for the 2000 Bush-Cheney campaign, was made by the White House and Griffin together, [NASA spokesman David] Mould said. ... Rhode, whose appointment was first reported on the Web site NASA Watch, could not be reached for comment by phone or e-mail."

Bush Administration Incompetence to Expand Scope Past Atmosphere, Wonkette

"Remember Patrick Rhode? He was the former TV reporter who leveraged a job as deputy advance guy for Bush in 2000 (deputy to the guy who makes sure there's bottled water behind the podium!) into a gig as deputy director of FEMA. Then New Orleans drowned, and Rhode called FEMA's response "probably one of the most efficient and effective responses in the country's history." Thankfully, he's no longer with FEMA. Nope, instead he's going to strand all of our astronauts in space."
