Snow Job

The place is Washington. The date is April 26th. George W. Bush formally names Tony Snow as his pick to replace Scott McClellan as his press secretary. This is a job that comes with a great deal of pressure and public exposure.

Tony Snow is no stranger to this type of exposure. For a long time he has been a commentator for Fox News, a network that has long been philosophically sympathetic to President Bush and his administration.

Karen Finney, the Democratic National Committee spokeswoman, put it Wednesday, "To our mind he is just moving from one part of the conservative infrastructure to another."

Although the job of press secretary will be new to Tony, the job description is almost identical. He will take the factual news of the day, and then twist and turn it into something that resembles a cow cake.

LOL. Oh, well. As if we all believe everything that comes out of the mouthpiece of ANY administration. They all spin it their own way, that's the purpose of the press secretary.
