Spinny McFox

(Keywords: politics, media, FOX News, liars for a living )

It's official, the new spokesliar is Tony Snow. I'd confused him with outbound Secretary of the Treasury John Snow over on Huffington Post. Dang, that's easy to do. No wonder they're getting rid off John - it's hard to tell these robots apart anyway. Similar names just screws things up worse.

A lot has been made of Snow's criticisms of Bush, but let's look at a sample: "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."

Weird how it's far more critical of Reid, Pelosi, and Wilson, isn't it? By merely mentioning that they should be fought back against, he sets up a strawman and attacks it - without ever mentioning why they're worthy of attack.

The guy's perfect for Bush.
