Snowy Conditions Proving Hazardous for Nation’s Idiots

Bad weather trapping you inside today? Well, stay put, lest you become like one of these hapless fools featured in The Onion News Network’s “Snowpocalypse” faux exposé, good for a laugh on a wintry day.

Blizzard a Case of God-Blocking, Robertson Says

The Rev. Pat Robertson sparked controversy in Sunday’s broadcast of his “700 Club” program when he claimed that God created the blizzard currently battering the Northeast “to punish Americans who were planning to drive to do something gay.”

Congress Has a Snow Day

Thanks to the lousy weather pummeling the nation’s capital, Congress is taking some time off. The House canceled all business pending bluer skies, while the Senate convened for a whole five minutes Monday. As of this posting, there is a 100 percent chance of snow in the forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Return of the Snow Job

Tony Snow, the pundit who became Bush’s press secretary, but then left because his $168,000 salary didn’t cut it, is returning to cable news. CNN has hired the Fox News veteran to be a conservative talking head.

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.

Pardon Fight!

The White House isn’t taking kindly to former President Bill Clinton’s characterization of the Libby commutation as being “consistent with their philosophy; they believe that they should be able to do what they want to do. ...”  Oh, snap!  Bush spokesman Tony Snow fired back with a reference to Clinton’s own pardon record: “I don’t know what Arkansan is for chutzpah, but this is a gigantic case of it.”

The ‘Surge’ Bait and Switch

Here’s a surprise: Remember how we were told that if we just waited until the fall, we’d see that George W. Bush’s “surge” was working in Iraq? Well, now it turns out that we shouldn’t expect answers in September after all.

Acceptable Violence?

Tony Snow Gets Busted

AlterNet caught White House press secretary Tony Snow spinning his icy heart out, only to get nailed the next day by CBS’ Bob Schieffer: “I think the reason the president [has] put [announcing his new Iraq strategy] off is he just hasn’t decided at this point what he wants to do, and I don’t think it’s any more complicated than that.”

Bush Stalls on New Strategy

The president has delayed a speech announcing possible changes in his Iraq strategy because, according to White House press secretary Tony Snow, he didn’t feel it was ready. Snow was careful to say that didn’t mean Bush was planning last-minute changes. Does that mean an ineffective strategy should remain in place, with the death toll mounting, because the rhetoric needs work?

Snow Fails to Spin Cheney Waterboarding Confirmation

Tony Snow couldn’t convince reporters that Dick Cheney wasn’t talking about waterboarding when he confirmed the practice of “dunking” suspects in water. (See second item of Al Kamen’s column.) A CBS reporter asked, “So ‘dunk in the water’ means what? We have a pool now at Guantanamo and they go swimming?”

Sen. Graham: White House Coerced Lawyers on Torture Letter

  • Andrew Sullivan called the move “breathtaking and shameless.”

    Snow Almost Doesn’t Bother Lying

    Asked whether Bush still thinks there was a relationship between Hussein and Al Qaeda honcho Al Zarqawi, White House spokesman Tony Snow nearly admitted the absence of such a relationship, but then said one existed because Zarqawi “operated” in Iraq. But as ThinkProgress points out, that’s like saying America had a “relationship” with the Unabomber because he was ?operating? in the United States.
