Inspired

Steve at The Llama Butchers has quite the inspired idea, and I like it!
Snake Plissken for F.E.M.A. No pansy-assed butt kissing, he just does the job and ignores the critics. Perhaps I might suggest in the same vein (sticking true on a gender basis):
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman for Chief of Police in New Orleans. What, you gonna argue with this guy? He'd kick ass and not even bother to take names --- I don't think New Orleans would see another looter this century.
General Maximus Decimus Meridias for Mayor of New Orleans. Yeah, he'd be a better governor, but let's face it -- he turned down all of Rome. Maximus could lead people in a crisis in his sleep better than Ray Nagin.
Lt. Ellen Ripley for Governor of Louisiana. Let's see....wishy-washy? Nope. Whiny? Nope. Able to tell folks the brown stuff is getting ready to hit the whirling air mover? Absolutely. Afraid of making a decision? Nope. In other words, she'd be everything that Kathleen Babineaux Blanco most assuredly isn't.
