On the Plane

Tony Snow Missing -- Day Five

MERIDA, Mexico -- Updating our APB from yesterday:

White House press secretary Tony Snow was spotted talking for a minute or two yesterday afternoon and this morning to the small press pool that shadows the president. But he has still not shown up in the press filing center where the bulk of the journalists on the trip are based. There's a podium set up here with a microphone, and lots of Snow's favorite inquisitors are waiting, eager for his presence.

Is Snow just lost? If so, he can click here for directions to the Holiday Inn Merida.

Maybe Harriet Miers had him dismissed and replaced.

If that impeccably coiffed, blow dried, and hair-sprayed immitation of a human being ever shows up again, it'll be way too soon.

maybe he can't handle his tequila and therefore must take frequent naps...

Well at least we won't have to listen to his lies.

Perhaps the Snow has melted.

Maybe he's subpoenaed by Judiciary?

Tony Snow is a non-event.

If ever there was a case of a blabber head parrot being unmasked as such this is it. He's a "news reader", and order taker, a shill, and without a hint of hypocrisy he pretends that his statements have veracity.

I can't wait for history to reflect on these losers, liars, and criminals in the NEO-CON whitehouse

Peter:

Just read thru all of your postings. This all seems like a sleep deprivation study, but at least your insight is refreshing. Thank you for the thankless work.

ps: Have you ever considered blogging on NASCAR. It would seem like an easy transition, with the self-generated hype and intrigue.

Maybe he realizes the mistake he made and wants his old job back on the other side of the podium.

I really like this insiders view of the White House Ministry of Propoganda. It's easy to see how these jerks grind you down to the point of being so tired and frustrated that you'll write what they want just to be done with it! And it's human nature, after all. Idealism takes a back seat to survival, love of family and friends and the desire for a clean set of underwear! One can't fight windmills forever, and these WH lowlife know it.
Nonetheless, keep up the good work. This IS enlightening.
