Nothing wakes you up like a spot of good news. Just this morning, I read this on CNN.com about the White House's latest embarassing departure.
Let me see if I have this right. Tony Snow, the White House spokesman, former guest host for "The Rush Limbaugh Show," "The O'Reilly Factor," and formerly of Fox News Channel, has Colon cancer. It spread to his liver, and he's claiming that he may have to leave for financial reasons? According to CNN.com, Tony Snow makes $168,000 a year as the White House spokesman. At least that's what he makes on the books. I'd be very surprised if he didn't have more dough stashed away. But let's say that he was a good little citizen and reported every fucking penny he made on his 1040s. Are you telling me that a Washington insider like Tony Snow can't get the best health care in the world?
Gee, maybe the US should have had a better health care system like Michael Moore said in "SiCKO."
I'd like to see this asshole come to understand the error of his ways. I'd like to see him recover fully from cancer and do something with the rest of his life, but this is Tony Snow we're talking about. He'd have to personally be responsible for the Cubs winning the World Series for me to believe he's capable of miraculously understanding what an evil shill he's been. I hope his money dries up, and I hope nobody wants to hear what he has to say or how much he's suffered with cancer. If he has crapped away so much of his money that he's already thinking of what little dough his kids will have for college, he's a fucking idiot. And if he thinks that we're going to buy half the shit he's tried to shovel down our throats about the Bush Administration, he's insulting our intelligence.
