Another Rat Jumps Ship

White House spokesmodel Tony Snow announced he is leaving his job due to "financial reasons". What does it say about a man who is unable to survive on a mere $168,000 a year? What does it say for the majority of people out there who have to survive on considerably less? Remember when somebody who pulled in that amount of cash was considered well off?
That this announcement comes on a Friday evening dump leads me to believe there's more to this story than we are being told. Is the $168,000 not enough to pay off those who maybe extorting him because the father of three's name may be on a certain DC madam's list? Or did Mr. Snow have a sudden attack of conscience because he has cancer and wishes to make things right before he shakes off his mortal coil and must stand before his maker and atone for his sins?
Whatever the reasons, Snow joins Karl Rove as another high profile member of the Bush administration who is jumping ship. Who knows? I think the Ramones express my sentiment the best......

Great Ramones song.

It's good to see Snow go, but I wonder who the WH will pick as their next professional liar. I bet the imbeciles at FoxNews are salivating to get the call.

There's alot of questions here.

First off, why isn't Bush busting out the checkbook (or cheney) and writing Snow a fat million dollar check?

Second, why isn't Fred Thompson out there raising money to save Tony as he did to Save Scooter Libby?

Third, my guess is that all of Tony's money is going to his costly healthcare....what does that say about his Federal Health Insurance plan?

Oh, I guess his cancer was a preexisting condition.

I find it hard to believe the guy is short on scratch. He could guest speak once a week at various Fundy colleges around the country to make the extra money if he really needed it.

Sounds more like an excuse than the truth to me.

It's an excuse that's nearly as bad as "to spend more time with my family". . .

It just keeps getting better and better.

Tony Snow has cancer, abdominal cancer. It is terminal, and he probably thinks that spending his last days with his family is more important than defending the actions of Georgie, who is probably the worst president we've elected. Anyway, cut Tony some slacks......he is dying.

I can't believe you guys...and girls are so cold and without feeling. Isn't that what your hippie thing was about? LOVE? Well, I haven't seen any love or compassion at all in this blog, or any of them related to this. All I have seen is hate....and I well....hate....hate!!!!!Why is it that the free spirits of our country cant seem to make a dent in our political society? Why is it that there are no changes? Im not sure but I think that you people actually "feel" way too much,(while you are sitting aroud smoking pot)and no one actually does anything about the situation.

Lizzy said...

What was that about cutting slacks? ...I think I missed something when I was filling up my bong.

When a man makes that much money and can afford to leave one job before he has another, but says he needs more money, well it does raise questions.

Kvatch said...

Personally, I think it's just that the man is dying and wants to spend his remaining time with his family.

What's more interesting, is that that a personal matter of such gravity isn't good enough for the Bu$hCo spinmeisters. Only financial reasons make sense to the loyalty policy in the administration.

2nd anonymous attacker...

"All I have seen is hate....and I well....hate....hate!!!!!"

So...uh...why are you attacking us after a statement like that? It plainly states that YOU hate. Make up your mind...maybe you've been smokin' something yourself! So...what do YOU suggest WE do anonymous person? What are your brilliant solutions? Inquiring minds want to know...in between bong hits that is...

PTCruiser said...

Will someone please pass the bong over here?

Kathy said...

I agree with several others that Snow is probably dying and just wants to spend his remaining time with family and friends.

I'll leave it up to God to judge him in the end.

Graeme said...

I'll try that again... with less "hate" for the oh-so-tender Anonymous, because really, being anonymous takes such balls.

To Tony: Don't let the dead bodies of the troops or the Iraqis get in your way on the way out. I'm sure you'll happily step over both.

To Anonymous: Too busy smoking pot?
I fucking wish.
Maybe you have that kind of time on your hands, but some of us have a lil thing called a L-I-F-E.
Most of the working class liberals I know don't have that kind of time.
I'm waaaay too busy trying to keep an eye on this administration's evil and uber-secretive actions that are destroying our Constitution, our nation and Iraq, raising my 2 kids under the age of 5, working, keeping a house together, paying my bills, and keeping my happy marriage happy to smoke pot.

I too am glad to see the rats abandoning the ship. However, I am still waiting for someone to impeach the biggest rat of all, and throw him overboard, so he can be tried for treason and taken before a military firing squad.

Ziem said...

I think it would be fitting if good ol' Tony enlisted, slapped his ass on the front line and then tried to live off that pay.

Self-serving little bastards, aren't they?

Not soon enough,

Kathy said...

Hello? Lew, are you there? I hope everything is okay and you're just taking a much needed break.

enigma4ever said...

Dusty said...

PoliShifter said...

Fat cat stopped posting abruptly with no word.

Turned out he passed away. Lew, you are worrying me. Hope everything is ok.

Tina said...

Alright Lew... it is now October 18th... 2 months since your last post. Please let us know all is well with you.
Seriously, dude.
We're all worried 'bout you.

pissed off patricia said...

Today is Nov. 5, are you okay? I'm getting real worried about you and I miss you. Just leave us a note or something. Please

Lew Scannon said...

Sorry friends, taking an extended sabbatical from the Bush bashing, hope to return soon!

Lizzy said...

That's a huge relief! I was worried -- very worried.

I even blogged about it:
Where is Lew Scannon?
