White House Snow Job


Via the fabtascular Sploid ("News with a Tabloid Mentality") comes word that Fox News' Tony Snow has indeed agreed to become the White House press pinata secretary:

Snow, who had recently battled colon cancer, was awaiting clearance from his doctors. He's expected to be introduced Wednesday morning as the next White House Press Secretary.

After years of being subjected to snivelling pawns, Snow may represent a pleasant change for the White House press corps. He's had a long career in both journalism and politics, with plenty of experience behind a typewriter and a microphone.

He started as a reporter in 1979, steadily rising through the ranks of punditry until Bush's father hired him as a speech writer in 1991.
