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! Because it’s Friday and not much is happening besides the collapse of the world economy, the collapse of various mines, and the collapse of parts of Peru, the wires all picked it up and reporters asked him about it and he said that yes, he would eventually quit being the Press Secretary, at some unknown date in the future.

Press Club Battle of the Bands

On Monday night, we were convinced to trek down to the National Press Club to see something we haven’t bothered with since high school: a battle of the bands. But this one was different — it had legendary studio guitar wizard Jeff “Skunk” Baxter. Oh, and Tony Snow and Bob Shieffer. A gallery of pictures from the lovely Liz Gorman is available right here. Our brief review is after the jump. Battle of the Bands Gallery Read more on Press Club Battle of the Bands…

Sorry, Dana Perino fans, Tony Snow’s coming back to work on Monday. Sort of? Maybe?

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?

Daily Briefing: These Colors Run

* Senate sounds “the bugle of retreat” by setting “the date certain for surrender” and “mandating failure.” [WP, NYT, LAT] * Tony Snow isn’t as much of a man as Elizabeth Edwards.

Metro Section: Butt City

* “It seems to me that if the city is going to legislate a smoking ban and effectively throw us smokers into the street, that the least they could do is pony up and put ashtrays on every busy block.” [Good at Drinking, Bad at Life] * “Only in DC do you see advertisements for military aircraft on public transit … Boeing’s C-27J spartan cargo and tactical transport aircraft.” [Life Off Balance] * Beautiful picture of Columbia Heights.

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.

And how they would only talk together, to keep their bullshit story straight? After the jump, thrill to the antics of the White House Press Corps as they lure Snow into a trap he may never escape.
