It could be interesting to see if Tony Snow can manage to bring a little civility and good humor to that nest of seditionist vipers. Why on earth he'd want the job is beyond understanding.

Knucklehead:

Maybe he wants to put them in their place.

They are already in their place, Terrye. Vipers in the snake pit. I suggest Tony's first act as press secretary be to toss a fully loaded polecat into the room and lock the door.

Tony Snow is a class act and would be a solid addition to the Bush administration.

brylun:

I think so too.

And the press corps is more like a preschool than a snake pit. Snakes are more dignified than that.

I think it would be better to toss a few vipers in rather than a polecat. You'd want to irritate them a bit first to avoid any professional courtesy being extended.

Tony Snow should do an excellent job. He is the right man for the job. Snow is both charming and knowledgeable. The White House is getting its act together. I expect the Republicans to do quite well in the November elections.

I hope it happens and that he lives up to my expectations, for they are very high.

Tony Snow has always exhibited good humor and sharp intellect along with one of the more pleasant manners on television news.

Those qualities are more necessary than ever for the WH press secretary.

God bless him.

tony is knowledgeable and a quick thinker. Soon people will be saying why doesn't Bush talk to us like that :)

Poor Scotty. The fact I even say the words 'poor Scotty' shows how much I cringed at the punching bag persona.

Fox has just announced that it will be made official tomorrow morning.

I believe this will be a good development for the War on Islamic Jihadism which, frankly, I am most concerned about.

On a practical basis, one must hope the Republicans do well in November. The Democrats cannot be trusted with our nation’s safety.

I think Terrye has it. These people can't intimidate Tony, he already knows where the bodies are buried; and they can't out-talk him.

I also look forward to him wringing Helen's neck and disjointing her like a stringy old hen before Sunday dinner when the Pastor's coming.

Now, is that anyway to talk about a helpless old lady?
