1. Would it surprise anybody if Tony Snow fled Washington for Afghanistan
to farm opium for the remainder of his days?

It wouldn't surprise me.

And I wouldn't blame 'im.

2. Somebody in the WH must read DU. Maybe they could pass along the idea?
It is just plain sad to have to beat up on the man who is so obviously NOT well.

9. True. I'm not exactly sure why he took that job to begin with,
but then again, I'm not a Washington media insider-type.

I hope Tony's health improves, but he's looking a bit weary of late.

Love the Vonnegut avatar.

4. he is looking ragged and worse for wear. and tear.
and people are beginning not to believe him simply because he says something is true. That is an amazing first step for the lame, tame, tongue-tied, misbegotten group known as the White House Press Corpse.

10. Agree. The press corps is growing wings these days and Tony is
having a tougher time than ever fending them off.

Helen Thomas wrote this White House off a long time ago. It's no wonder they don't care for her much.

17. damn, he looks like caspar the ghost, or death warmed over.
is he trying out for the next harry potter film?
the eyes are sunken, the suits seem to be getting bigger, but he still lectures the press corpse about how well things are going in IraqNam.

"the iraqis are stepping forward. bottom's up progress." No, he was not referencing the Catholic Church's latest settlement, but what their spinners tagged as the new and improved motto for Bushdom.
