Tony the Pony

Via C&L, CNN is reporting that Fox anchor and former Goerge H.W. Bush speechwriter Tony Snow is "likely to accept the job as White House press secretary, succeeding Scott McClellan."


The sources said they expect him to announce his decision within the next few days.
A source familiar with the discussions said Monday that newly appointed Chief of Staff Josh Bolten asked Snow to make a decision by early this week.
That's adorable. Nothing warms the very cockles of my crusty old heart like a mendacious shill finally being able to slough off the restrictive bonds forged in the guise of legitmacy, at long last free of the need to insist while stifling a maniacal laugh that one is not a two-dollar administration whore. Now the dear Mr. Snow can sing it loud and proud. Ah, the sweet smell of freedom.

In other news, Treasury Secretary John Snow is reportedly on his way out. Odd, that. Since when is there only room for one snow job in the Bush administration?
