Another Rat Jumps The W, Rove and Co Ship: Tony Snow Gets Replaced By A Fair Beauty

I didn't catch this on the AM MSM reporting today. Did you?

Apparently, Tony the snow Job has had enough. Good news: Dana Perino is taking over. She is definitely easier on the eyes, as Dave Letterman would say.
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. Good afternoon to you.

Tony Snow informed me he's leaving. And I sadly accept his desire to leave the White House, and he'll do so on September the 14th. He is -- it's been a joy to watch him spar with you. He's smart, he's capable, he's witty. He's capable of -- he's able to talk about issues in a way that the American people can understand.

And I don't know what he's going to do -- I'm not sure he does yet, either. But whatever it is, it's going to be -- two things: One, he'll battle cancer and win. And secondly, he'll be a solid contributor to society.
Have a look at what Tony had to day and see if you believe it...particularly about the statement that it was an enormous amount of fun:
MR. SNOW: Just a couple of quick comments. First, Mr. President, thank you and thanks for the honor of serving. This job has really been a dream for me and a blast. I've had an enormous amount of fun and satisfaction, and I'm proud to be working for you, and will continue after I leave working for the White House, to speak out about issues I care about.
And for the second time in the same day, the President leaves a very interesting question unanswered with a "Thank You."
Q How do you feel about losing everybody?

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you all.
As the rats jump the ship, the house of cards that Rove built tumbles.

Dana Perino has the opposite effect on my. I would like to reach through the TV screen and ring her scrawny ice queen neck. She's almost as bad as Dick Cheney's wife...another one who deserves to be slapped from here to Timbuktu.

I think Ms. Perino is a delight. A perfect continuation of the finest line of Press Secretaries ever to grace an administration.
