Yesterday, Tony Snow announced he was leaving the Whitehouse on September 14, and was quite frank about the financial sacrifices that led him to the decision. In both a genuine and magnanimous gesture, Tony remarked to the venerable Whitehouse correspondent, Helen Thomas–who has covered every President since JFK–that he hoped that he was making “life a living hell” for some Whitehouse Press Secretary when he is her age.


All the best to Tony and his family. As I’ve said before, I don’t know if we’ve had a better Whitehouse Press Secretary, in any administration. None of the Reagan, 41, or Clinton press secretaries ever struck me as particularly genuine or smart–just smarmy.

Thx to Tony Snow for his service and sacrifice to our country, to Breitbart, and HotAir
