Tony Snow sells "siding"??
Why is Tony Snow pitching siding in Iowa?


Actually, he is and he isn't, all at the same time. For any other radio personality, this might not be an issue, but Tony Snow is now the White House press secretary. As a result, a spot he cut for a station in Iowa a few years ago most certainly should not be running now.

But it has, on WHO-AM in Des Moines, with its massive nighttime signal reaching many states.

2. If only it had been a commercial for "used cars"
No offense intended to those who make a living selling used cars. but if they were playing an old "used car" ad the comparisions and jokes would be plentiful.

3. Let's see WH Press Secretary and Siding Salesman
Eithre job ranks right up there with used car salesman. 2 strikes - can only imagine that is going to hurt sales for the siding.

6. They don't hide the corporate sponsorship.
Should have logos on their suits. At least we would know who they work for.

8. Selling siding is the perfect job for Tony Snow-job
Maybe he can go into selling siding as a full-time job after he is forced to resign from politics and the news biz in disgrace. ;-)
