It's official, Press Secretary Scott McClellan's out. The rumors are that he'll be replaced with rightwing FOX host Tony Snow. If this is true, there are two ways of looking at this - Snow's a lousy choice because he's freakin' crazy or he's a great choice because he's the administration's kind of crazy.
A quick check of Media Matters shows that Snow's been a White House spokes-liar for quite some time. He's attacked Joe Wilson, Valerie Plame, evolution, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and John Kerry. He'll definitely toe the line - the administration wouldn't have a more loyal lapdog if it hired Bill O'Reilly or Rush Limbaugh.
Different face, same BS.
