Again, I am convinced that Tony Snow is the best Whitehouse spokesman we’ve had in quite a while. The following exchange between he and Jim Axlerod of CBS News is why.


Axelrod asked Snow if the White House was “isolated and out of touch” in what they say about Iraq and the politics of the war on Capitol Hill, to which Snow dryly replied:

No, no more than I think people look at you and think you are focused on defeat.

Always good to call reporters out on their dripping condescension sometimes.

Snow is now a solid addition to my list of favorite people with the word “snow” in their name. The other being, of course, Jerry Reed as “Snowman.”


Thx to Tony Snow, Jerry Reed, and FishWrap
