TOMORROW'S WEATHER: LIGHT SNOW, FOLLOWED BY FRISSON....The Hotline says that tomorrow is probably the day George Bush announces that Tony Snow is his new press secretary:

Quietly, researchers at the White House have examined hundreds of Snow's radio show transcripts and newspaper columns. They expect the White House press corps, in news articles and at early briefings, to publicly vet Snow, confronting him with his past statements. After the initial frission ... opinions differ.

Think Progress has a nice little collection of Snow-isms from recent years if you're curious to see just what frisson the White House can expect.

It's hard not to wonder if this is all some kind of weird misdirection from the White House, though. I honestly don't understand why they're seemingly so set on Snow. What exactly does he bring to the table that's so unique?

UPDATE: It's official. Snow's appointment will be announced on Wednesday.

Maybe better coverage from Fox? No, seriously.

Both Tony Snow and Bush will enter into their "relationship" with small credibility, and will, after the passage of time, leave it with even less.

I think that's called win-win.

Just about everybody on the right is a reverse Midas nowadays, turning everybody else they touch into shit.

Happy times for all of us.

"What exactly does he bring to the table?"

He's a FauxNews anchor fer cryin' out loud. The guy knows how to spin like a freakin' trance DJ.

Just because he's had some tough words for the chimp, doesn't mean that he can't spewed misinformation with the best of 'em.

Posted by: Mitch on April 25, 2006 at 10:01 PM | PERMALINK

Does he sweat less than Scott McClellan? McClellan had that attractive 'nixon sweat' thing going on.

Posted by: cynical joe on April 25, 2006 at 10:02 PM | PERMALINK

The BCM will be even more enamored of the Bush administration for the opportunity to use 'Snow Job' in headlines. This is a media strategy.

Posted by: adam on April 25, 2006 at 10:04 PM | PERMALINK

It's all showbiz now. Scottie was perfect casting -- if you were casting an admin. dart board for laughs. Snow will be affable, on point, and heaven forbid, he might even show a sense of humor now and again. That doesn't mean he won't be lying thru his pearly whites, he will be. He'll just do it with more aplomb than the feeble McClellen.

Posted by: Harley on April 25, 2006 at 10:10 PM | PERMALINK

Well, the Harriet Myers misdirection secured Alito a spot on SCOTUS. I figure all this anti-Snow venom will redefine the the relevant qualifications of press secretary and allow the administration to install an untalented mime. For all their collective schooling elitist liberal reporters sure are easy to run circles around.

Posted by: Al on April 25, 2006 at 10:15 PM | PERMALINK

What does he bring to the party?
A distaction. Get everybody to concentrate on him rather than on Bush and the people with serious potential for further misbehavior. Let the fire storm somewhere else.

Posted by: focus on April 25, 2006 at 10:17 PM | PERMALINK

That doesn't mean he won't be lying thru his pearly whites, he will be. He'll just do it with more aplomb than the feeble McClellen.

All of his lines are going to be scripted by the WH. What's the guy going to do when those lines are blatantly inconsistent with reality or each other?

What's missing in the WH pressroom isn't rhetoric or humor. It's anything resembling logic or facts. It's a Roach Hotel for Press spokesmen: you can check your reputation in, but you'll never check it out.

Posted by: frankly0 on April 25, 2006 at 10:19 PM | PERMALINK

So now we get snow flakes from press secretary as well as Rummy? How will tony do his job without a monitor to read?

Posted by: anonymous on April 25, 2006 at 10:27 PM | PERMALINK

I rather fancy myself as a political animal ( one guess which ) and so , wish to thank the political vegetable, Kevin Drum for this platform to mouth off on. Somethings been gnawing at me and sends a periodic frisson up and down my tail. That is the blatent fascism on display from this criminal regime.
Look at the redshirt fascist Christopher Hitchens.
Then look at the brownshirt fascist Michael Ledeen.
Both have regular gigs in the MSM and no one bats an eyelid.
This is like Russia's National Bolshevic party have taken over the republic of America and turned it into a classic fascist empire - a forth reich and a Trotskyist's wet dream. ( world revolution through state terror )
Is our children learning?

Posted by: professor rat on April 25, 2006 at 10:32 PM | PERMALINK

aside from the smoochy personal and professional relationship snow has to the rest of the sally quinn party pals? well, i would suggest he's there to hang onto that fox demo that one by one is beginning to question dearleader's abilities. mcclellan never had that 'personal relationship' with goober america that snow does through his teevee/radio outlets.

Posted by: linda on April 25, 2006 at 10:34 PM | PERMALINK

Can't have two Snows in the administration , it would be confusing. Thus, the Treasury Secretary must be departing soon.

Posted by: Tom on April 25, 2006 at 10:34 PM | PERMALINK

Apparently Tony Blair wasn't available.


Posted by: Ross Best on April 25, 2006 at 10:36 PM | PERMALINK

What does he bring to the table that is so unique?

Well, nothing unique. It's the same formula we find in George W. Bush. A guy who can appear genial even while being a vicious little partisan punk.

Posted by: John Thullen on April 25, 2006 at 10:37 PM | PERMALINK

What he brings to the table is very simple:

They've seen him on TV.

Posted by: Paul K on April 25, 2006 at 10:38 PM | PERMALINK

You could check out Tony Snow's record at MediaMatters, but I prefer to think of him as Linda Tripp's special friend.
The upside: we will be able to refer to press gaggles as Snow Jobs which will add a touch of truth to those events.

Posted by: Mike on April 25, 2006 at 10:42 PM | PERMALINK

Sure we can have 2 Snows in the administration. They've got 2 Bolton's (discounting the slightly different spelling.)

Posted by: David on April 25, 2006 at 10:43 PM | PERMALINK

I think this is a feint--they suggest Snow, we get up in arms, and then they slip some sort of Alito in instead. The odd thing is, the left isn't particularly up in arms, since it assumes the press secretary is mostly a buffoon with no power. I wonder whether, as with Myers, this means the loony right will be called in to scuttle Snow. The left can't even manage to play its role as dupe correctly.

Posted by: Feint on April 25, 2006 at 10:54 PM | PERMALINK

He brings a pretty face and the possibility that the WH press corps will cut him (and the WH) some collegeal slack - because y'know they're all buds and stuff.


Lots of sludge about Snow demanding and getting agreement that he will be part of the inner circle policy debate - HA HA HA HAHAH HAA (breath) HA HAH HAAHAHA. That ain't gonna happen. Odds are if he has any professional ambition (and eqo) he will be out before year end - if he lasts til the elections.

Posted by: paul on April 25, 2006 at 11:12 PM | PERMALINK

What does Snow bring to the table? Well, he was diagnosed with colon cancer last year, so if anybody criticizes him or treats him harshly, the Bush administration can claim that those persons condone abusing cancer patients. It's just another form of the standard "you must hate freedom and love terrorists" approach.

Posted by: WCharles on April 25, 2006 at 11:14 PM | PERMALINK

Unhinged from reality and unaware how around the bend they are, that's how I explain it. Surely they thought this would put "the left" up in arms and that would give them a bonus week to do something nefarious (fill in the blank ... always something new up their sleeve). I like it that none of the progressive blogs I've checked tonight are especially agitated about this. Instead, there's kind of a vibe of delighted waiting. Scott McClellan was scraping the bottom of the barrel anyway, there's nothing left there to scrape. So bring in Snow. It's all a show anyway, so what does it matter?

Posted by: Robustus on April 25, 2006 at 11:15 PM | PERMALINK

Snow is a very smart and an engaging fellow. People probably will like him. He is certainly a different type of press secretary than any president has had in the past. He either will stumble pretty badly, or be a big hit. At least he will bring some life to the press room.

Posted by: brian on April 25, 2006 at 11:20 PM | PERMALINK

Snow is already part of the kewl kidz club....what else could the Administration ask for...

Seems like Kevin still seems to think this Administration thinks qualifications are relevant...though I am not sure what the exact qualifications for White House secretary are other than lying with a straight face and evading and equivicating with the best of them, which Snow has down pat...

Posted by: justmy2 on April 25, 2006 at 11:26 PM | PERMALINK

Actually I haven't see any Anti-Snow 'Venom', as you put. FAUX News is a Joke, Ergo People are wondering why would Bush hire from the Network that has helped his ratings plummett?

Amazement. It's as Bush was trying to implode. I'm Laughing AL, not spewing "Venom" as you would like to 'project' with your mcarthyite attack style upon the Blog..

you sound like a GOP moonie AL.
Really when are you guys gonna get a new plan?

Posted by: Al Moonie on April 25, 2006 at 11:28 PM | PERMALINK

Do you get the feeling that there has been more effort put into hiring a press secretary than there was for, oh, all, but three or four cabinet members?

What's most surprising to me is the amount of coverage it's been getting. Whoever the White House's flack, it doesn't have a thing to do with how the country is run.

Posted by: Boots Day on April 25, 2006 at 11:32 PM | PERMALINK

"Easy Certainty"
http://www.yuricareport.com/Bush'sBody/BushAndEasyCertainty.html
That very issue is what Jim Wallis wishes he could sit and talk about with George W. Bush. That's impossible now, he says. He is no longer invited to the White House.

"Faith can cut in so many ways," he said. "If you're penitent and not triumphal, it can move us to repentance and accountability and help us reach for something higher than ourselves. That can be a powerful thing, a thing that moves us beyond politics as usual, like Martin Luther King did. But when it's designed to certify our righteousness - that can be a dangerous thing. Then it pushes self-criticism aside. There's no reflection.

"Where people often get lost is on this very point," he said after a moment of thought. "Real faith, you see, leads us to deeper reflection and not - not ever - to the thing we as humans so very much want."

And what is that?

"Easy certainty."

Posted by: Al Moonie on April 25, 2006 at 11:42 PM | PERMALINK

Snowjob.

There. Now it's out of my system.

Posted by: Aaron Adams on April 25, 2006 at 11:48 PM | PERMALINK

Nonstory. Nonevent. The WH found someone who was willing to take the job, who is already a Bush cheerleader, and who has experience in front of a camera.

Simple. Easy. Trivial.

Posted by: CaseyL on April 26, 2006 at 12:27 AM | PERMALINK
They've got 2 Bolton's (discounting the slightly different spelling.)

And two Cheneys, with the same spelling (and, indeed, a rather close family relationship.)

Posted by: cmdicely on April 26, 2006 at 12:34 AM | PERMALINK

It's hard not to wonder if this is all some kind of weird misdirection from the White House, though. I honestly don't understand why they're seemingly so set on Snow. What exactly does he bring to the table that's so unique?

Willingness to accept the job of Shillmaster-in-Chief for an administration that is near the record low of popularity of any administration since widespread polling began, and still losing popularity?

Posted by: cmdicely on April 26, 2006 at 12:38 AM | PERMALINK

It's simple the administration need the constant drone of Fox News to help keep their consciences from screaming. Snow is the anchor they like best, its sort of like Maddonna's Truth or Dare Movie lived out in the prescription drug haze of modern Republican Washington, DC.

Posted by: patience on April 26, 2006 at 12:41 AM | PERMALINK

"I honestly don't understand why they're seemingly so set on Snow. What exactly does he bring to the table that's so unique?"

Communication with the base.

To avoid a total landslide this November, the WH has got to get real core Republican voters to turn out. And those voters are currently low on enthusiasm. Snow is outreach to them.

Posted by: Petey on April 26, 2006 at 12:48 AM | PERMALINK

Petey's right. Snow won't make the rest of us any madder than we already are--we'll be more amused, though--and he appeals to the few true believers still out there.

Posted by: shortstop on April 26, 2006 at 12:55 AM | PERMALINK

I predict this will be a disaster for the administration, and will end in a conflagration in which Snow resigns in disgust. He's got enough of an ego that an ethical quandry will baloon beyond control.

Well, even if that's just wishful thinking, the interactions with Helen Thomas will be great.

Posted by: JamesP on April 26, 2006 at 1:15 AM | PERMALINK

I'm laughing at the comments by Dems here. The one about Snow being 'a disater for the administration' was one of the funniest.

Posted by: MountainDan on April 26, 2006 at 1:29 AM | PERMALINK

Right, Mountin'Dan. Because you've shown such a propensity for recognizing success.

(See? The entertainment's already begun!)

They've got two Cheneys.

And they had two Powells.

And those were related.

You keep laughing, Dan.

All the way to the "Worst Administration in US History."

Posted by: obscure on April 26, 2006 at 2:12 AM | PERMALINK

You have to admit it's a leap of faith for Snow. Brit Hume jumped out of an airplane with Bush Sr. but it has to be much more exhilarating to tie yourself to a falling President. What's the pay cut anyway?

Posted by: toast on April 26, 2006 at 3:50 AM | PERMALINK

So it's now official -- the White House will confirm tomorrow that FOX News has in fact become "GOP State Television" in actual name as well as in content.

This is all going to make a really great black comedy by the Coen Brothers someday -- if our country somehow manages to survive the next three years relatively intact.

Tony Snow has a column on Townhall TODAY ridiculing the President for calling for investigations into price-gouging by oil companies.

http://www.townhall.com/opinion/columns/tonysnow/2006/04/26/195103.html

"It is ugly to see politicians trying to exploit for political gain the economic ignorance, paranoia of large corporations and petty envy that burden elements of the public mind."

Tomorrow, he's going to have to defend that same policy, and that same exploitative politician. How the hell is he going to be able to stand up without being laughed out of the room?

Posted by: brooksfoe on April 26, 2006 at 6:52 AM | PERMALINK

Snow will be the Adolf Eichmann of White House press secretaries - all propaganda, all the time.

It is fitting for the first truly fascist regime in American history. I have the first question for Mr. Snow:

"Now that gasoline prices are over $3 per gallon, when is the White House going to release the transcripts from Dick Cheney's Energy Task Force and what will those transcripts reveal?"

Posted by: Stephen Kriz on April 26, 2006 at 6:53 AM | PERMALINK


KEVIN DRUM: Think Progress has a nice little collection of Snow-isms from recent years if you're curious to see just what frisson the White House can expect.

Think Progress was doing the White House a favor by compiling these Snow criticisms of Bush. They will serve nicely as examples to point to showing how "fair and balanced" Snow is. It's the same principle employed by other administration shills (Chris Matthews, Tim Russert, Howard Kurtz) when they say that they receive criticism from both sides, so they must be doing something right.

"One of the things that always made me feel good in the morning was waking up and realizing I did not belong to the same political party as Chuck Schumer. It made me feel clean -- even before I took a shower. But now, with my Republican president pulling a "full Schumer," even a series of showers will not help." -Snow-

A series of nuclear or biological contamination showers complete with stiff bristle brush scrubbings wouldn't help.

Posted by: Lurker42 on April 26, 2006 at 8:40 AM | PERMALINK

Lord, folks: don't you know how this works?

Tony Snow is good on tv, and he's funny. He will be asked about his criticisms of the President -- and he will say something funny about it.

That sorta thing is SUPERB politics, of precisely the sort the Bush administration needs. It shows SOMEBODY gets it, knows what their vulnerabilities are and doesn't take 'em too seriously. That not only conveys an image of strength, it is PROOF.

Here's a f'r instance: when JFK nominated his brother RFK to be Attorney General, everybody knew why -- Robert Kennedy was the family hatchet man, the enforcer. It could have been a very controversial appointment for that reason, and he was extremely vulnerable because he was famously intolerant of criticism, and had the not insignificant problem for an Attorney General that he had very little actual experience as a lawyer. So RFK was making calls to the Hill, telling Senators that the first sumbitch who challenged his qualifications to run the Department of Justice would earn his undying and unforgiving enmity...

and then somebody asked JFK about it at a press conference, and he said: "I see no harm in giving my little brother Bobby some legal experience before sending him out to practice law."

RFK was confirmed easily.

Don't sell the Bush guys short. They're not all idiots.

Posted by: theAmericanist on April 26, 2006 at 8:56 AM | PERMALINK

Kevin -- you got it -- there's something a bit odd about this.

They expect the White House press corps ... to publicly vet Snow, confronting him with his past statements.
....
It's hard not to wonder if this is all some kind of weird misdirection from the White House, though. I honestly don't understand why they're seemingly so set on Snow. What exactly does he bring to the table that's so unique?

At first I thought you meant the White House was going to publicly confront Snow with his statement.

Make a show of rejecting him in a "Sistah Souljah" moment.

But maybe they're not that smart. Maybe they just want someone they can trust and has cred -- but all they know is who has cred within their bubble.

I predict this will backfire, and badly.

But you won't know that by the reaction of the Press Corpse. They'll make a wee show with murmurs of discontent, and then it'll blow over. And not long after that, the media will pay a heavy price as well.

Posted by: SombreroFallout on April 26, 2006 at 9:22 AM | PERMALINK

Mike stole my joke, but I'm surprised more people aren't wondering how the administration managed to vet a candidate whose name will lead to press conferences being referred to as snow jobs. I guess that is what happens when you fire the communications director before you have a replacement. Are there any polls indicating the level of belief in what the administration says so we can have a baseline?

Posted by: LisainVan on April 26, 2006 at 9:42 AM | PERMALINK

This is all going to make a really great black comedy by the Coen Brothers someday...

I was thinking Wes Craven the last few months, but I'd certainly rather see the Coens do it.

Americanist: We see how it works. But what you're describing would have worked four, three, maybe two years ago, not now. JFK got smiles for that famous comment because he wasn't already nearly universally reviled. It's too late for an MO like Snow's to work on an administration facing furious questions from all directions.

Posted by: shortstop on April 26, 2006 at 9:44 AM | PERMALINK

Snow is slick and has no moral compass or integrity.

This is obvious when looking over his past statements. He will do anything for access to power.

So he fits in just great.

Ceanothus cordulatus is a lovely western shrub, commonly referred to as the Snow-Bush.

When the honeymoon passes and his ire shows, will they say that it was a "snow melt".

He will remain the "snow fence" between the Shrub and the press.

And to think that if loofahs and falafels were not so damn pricey, they could have had that Communist, Bill O - Love it that many of his followers are now calling Bill a Commie because he wants to rein in the oil companies. Reminds me of the glorious days of the Committee in old Paree. Geez, when the Faux crowd wants to see Bill in a tumbrell, the end is nigh.

Ah, Paul, our resident gardening guru.

In Barbados, I encountered a beautiful shrub called Snow on the Mountain, which blooms only at Christmastime (not Hanukkah, not Kwanzaa, not the winter solstice). A wittier mind than mine could probably do something with that.

Posted by: Alex on April 26, 2006 at 11:39 AM | PERMALINK

Snow won't like it.

The not being able to say anying part and its a bad match with much less TV face time than FOX news> For Snow it's a step down and a step backward with Bush being the heavy handed dictator - no news is not exactly good news.

Strange too how Bush fired Scott McClellan before knowing if Snow would even take the job. This administrations doesn't waste time on thinking it's way though anything. What exactly does Bush want? Is a touch of Hollywood without the theatrics? It's sort of like the picking Karen Huges to promote Republican values to Iraqis? Just anouther one of Bush's worthless ideas.

All the Bush folks who watch FOX News won't like the new Tony Snow and they want like what Bush mades Snow into, a mindless mimic machine, a gelded Colin Powell.

This isn't going to help Bush's poll numbers, this thing where Bush wants to get Snow to try and snow the press. FOX news was simply entertainment and now Snow is fish out of water. Nothing entertaining about press sec with nothing to say.

Dude, check it out - Townhall.com now claims the offending Bush/Schumer column was actually written by Tony Blankley, not Tony Snow!

http://www.townhall.com/opinion/columns/tonyblankley/2006/04/26/195103.html

Is this for real? Or an effort at spin control? Anybody familiar enough with Snow's style to judge whether Snow actually wrote it?

Posted by: brooksfoe on April 26, 2006 at 1:16 PM | PERMALINK

How long, O Lord, must we endure bad puns, similies and metaphors about Snow?

That said, it's interesting that after introducing Snow as the new White House spokesman, Bush and Snow both made brief remarks. And left the room without answering questions.

Posted by: Dave In Texas on April 26, 2006 at 1:16 PM | PERMALINK

The WH wants/needs a good propagandist. McClellan sucked (in more ways than we know) and Fleischer was a known liar. Snow brings his FOX audience into the WH camp and, since he has a history of criticizing the president, some sense of conservative objectivism, which, according to neo-conman logic, will allow him to more easily spread the message the Bush regime is doing a good job for America. Although I hope most Americans will not fall for Snow's spin, it is possible he can fool the people into once again supporting the War President. Afterall, Bush was reelected.
