Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

They won’t have Scotty to kick around anymore. GW announced today that Fox News pundit Tony Snow is succeeding Scott McClellan as presidential press secretary. Snow is just what the nation needs in a presidential spokesman — a Ted Baxter clone. It is a bit funny that Snow has made quite a few pronouncements in recent times that were less than laudatory about his new Boss. Here is one example:

“His wavering conservatism has become an active concern among Republicans, who wish he would stop cowering under the bed and start fighting back against the likes of Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Joe Wilson. The newly passive George Bush has become something of an embarrassment.”

Oops. That’s a little like riding up the elevator on the first day of the job and telling someone about some sweet thing you nailed last night. Only the sweet thing turns out to be the boss’ daughter. But at least Snow comes to the White House from what is the closest medium this country has to state-sponsored television: FNC. I guess maybe GW decided to overlook the nasty remarks. But, I doubt that he has forgotten them.
