15. Hey Mr. Brown! We knew about it way before it you loser!
I'm searching online and find articles from way before that prove Brown's not-so-shocking point:
Geoffrey Lean, "Warnings went ignored as Bush slashed flood defence budget to pay for wars". The Independent: SEPTEMBER 4, 2005...around a week after Katrina hit.
Luis Martinez, "Documents Show Katrina Warnings Ignored". ABC News: JANUARY 24, 2006!!!
"Video shows Bush got explicit Katrina warning". Associated Press: March 2, 2006 (link includes video report from NBC Nightly News)

Bush's former campaign man and strategist Ken Mehlman admitting he's gay is much more surprising and newsworthy than coward Brown's belated admission.
