Tony Snow: Only In It For the Money

Tony Snow was on Hugh Hewitt’s show yesterday, to talk about how the surge is working really well and how we’re going to bomb the shit out of Iran and also how he’s going to retire, some day!

James Dobson: ‘Fred Thompson Worships Satan’

Inexplicably powerful Jesus freak leader James Dobson isn’t interested in teevee actor Fred Thompson’s unannounced campaign for the GOP nomination. Why? “I don’t think he’s a Christian,” Dobson said Tuesday. So what is the Law & Order star? A Muslim terrorist? A neocon Jew? A sword-wielding turbaned Sikh? A baby-eating Satanist?

Breaking: Clintons to Snub Tony Snow

White House spokesman Tony Snow has cancer again, his omnipresent “live strong” bracelet having failed its wearer yet again. Snow went in Monday to have a small growth removed from his pelvic area, and doctors discovered that the cancer’s back. Snow, despite being fairly smarmy, is not actually one of the individuals currently fucking everything up that we’d happily say cancer is too good for, so we wish him a speedy and full recovery. And hell, whoever’d replace him would probably just be worse, unless it’s that cutie Dana Perino. What a cutie! And a dangerous liar, but the pretty ones always are.
