Like a vast detonation of awful, the come-from-behind victory of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is now spreading shockwaves of collateral derp all the way to America’s shores. You remember Michael Brown, the Bush administration flunky who was running FEMA at the time of Hurricane Katrina and helped then-President Bush coin the immortal words “Heckuva Job, Brownie” as New Orleans swirled down the drain into oblivion.

Well, now Brown has resurfaced as a talk radio host and a TPM Reader found to his gobsmacked amazement that Brown is now purchasing sponsored tweets drop-kicking President Obama over Netanyahu’s reelection.

“Take that, little man. #Bibiwins”

You can see the screengrab here …

Here’s the tweet itself.

As you may recall, Hurricane Katrina was President Bush’s Katrina, a vast failure of government planning and competence which marked a decisive decline in the President’s popularity less than a year after his reelection. Notably, after his FEMA infamy and his subsequent defenestration, Brown went on to become a sorta critic of the Bush administration. He appears to have returned to form.
