Yet Another Snow Job?

Sunday, August 19th, 2007

I wasn’t surprised to hear that Tony Snow plans to leave his Bush spokesperson gig when his “money runs out,” and possibly as early as September.

In fact, the only thing that surprised me was that he came back to his White House job at all after his latest bout with cancer.  I can’t imagine anyone with a life-threatening illness wanting to spend what could possibly be his last years or even months being a Bush patsy on a government salary. And that brings me to my latest limerick:

Yet Another Snow Job?

Bush spokesman, ex-Foxer named Snow
Is quite ill and is planning to go.
Must be stressful to lie
Ev’ry day for that guy.

Bush’s Private Podium — The Real Dope

Thursday, August 9th, 2007

According to Americablog, CNN’s Ed Henry has reported that Bush now has a spanking new (and personal) press briefing room podium.

I guess the podium used by Tony Snow and Dana Perino must have cooties. Or perhaps they’re hiding some sort of electronic “dictate the answers to Bush” equipment inside his personal podium. On the other hand, this just might be Dick Cheney’s undisclosed location.

The White House No Long Loves September

Saturday, June 16th, 2007

September,
September,
Bush promised September.
But Tony now says, no way.

He’s Staying! So, There! (Updated With Skippy Contest Info)

Tuesday, May 15th, 2007

No, I’m not  talking about Alberto Gonzales, although Gonzo seems to be staying too –  so far, at least.   I’m referring to yet another Bush administration miscreant:  the ethically challenged World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz and Bush’s stubborn insistence on keeping Wolfowitz on the job:

He’s staying!  So, there! (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Will Wolfowitz finally go?
“Not a firing offense,” argues Snow.
At the World Bank, he’ll stay.
Cave to pressure?  No way!
He’s our guy!  We’re in charge!  It’s our show!

UPDATE: My good pal Skippy is having a fun contest!  Having heard about the Clinton campaign’s efforts to get the public to help choose an official campaign song, Skippy decided to provide some Skippy-style assistance.  [tags]Paul Wolfowitz Satire, World Bank President, Tony Snow, Bush Loyalty Satire, Bush Stubbornness, Ethics Violations[/tags]
