He Works Hard for the Money

The innovator of the Snow job says he’ll be leaving the White House before George W. Bush, but it won’t be for health reasons: “I’ve told people when my money runs out, then I’ve got to go.” Press secretary Tony Snow’s spintastic rhetorical flair will surely be missed by a president always in need of damage control and a blogosphere that has grown attached to those “did he just say that?” moments.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - White House spokesman Tony Snow plans to leave his job before U.S. President George W. Bush’s term ends in January 2009, citing financial reasons rather than his recurrence of colon cancer.
In a radio interview this week, Snow, 52, did not reveal when he would leave. Snow earlier this year suffered a return of colon cancer and has been receiving chemotherapy.
