Since everyone feels it's necessary to laud Tony Snow for being such a good man, let's look back at what he did to deserve this praise:

Press Briefing by Tony Snow
http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2006/06/2006061...

Q Tony, American deaths in Iraq have reached 2,500. Is there any response or reaction from the President on that?

MR. SNOW: It's a number, and every time there's one of these 500 benchmarks people want something. The President would like the war to be over now. Everybody would like the war to be over now. And the one thing that we saw in Iraq this week is further testimony to the quality of the men and the women who are doing that, and the dedication and determination to try to ensure that the people of Iraq really do live in a free, effective democracy of their own creation and design.


Tony Snow was the propaganda mouthpiece for an illegitimate regime that started an illegal war that has resulted in the deaths of 4118 U.S. troops. Dying of cancer does not change that fact. If anyone deserves to be mourned, it's these people, NOT Tony Snow.
















Where are the posts praising the life of Sgt. 1st Class Steven J. Chevalier?

DoD Identifies Army Casualty

The Department of Defense announced today the death of a soldier who was supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Sgt. 1st Class Steven J. Chevalier, 35, of Flint, Mich., died July 9 in Balad, Iraq, of wounds suffered in Samarra, Iraq, when his patrol vehicle was struck by a grenade. He was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 327th Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), Fort Campbell, Ky.


...But, but, but, Tony Snow had a family. Yeah, so did these people.



And lest I be ethnocentric, I bet this guy had a family, too.


Let's hide from truth. It's what all the right-wingers do.
