Tony Snowjob shines in lying debut

Having worked at Fox News prior to his appointment as the new White House Press Secretary, Tony Snow is accustomed to making the case for George W. Bush. So he seemed to avoid the first-day jitters in his initial day of full-time lying for a living. Snow held his first solo press briefing yesterday and, while watching him bob, weave and answer few questions, it was almost as if Scott "The Lyin' King" McClellan never retired to the GOP fibbers hall of fame.

Have a look, as Snow has a run of null answers that must have had McClellan wiping away tears and saying "that's my boy."
Q: Tony, I'm curious, why won't you comment at all on the USA Today story, or at least talk in a limited way about how average Americans' phone records are handled by the National Security Agency?
Snow: Because it's inappropriate.
Let's try another…
Q: Has Karl Rove told the President that he will resign if he is indicated in the Valerie Plame affair?
Snow: I am not going to comment at all on Karl Rove and his private communications with the President, nor am I going to comment on what may or may not happen.
