Quote of the Day

Tony Snow:

Q: Are there any members of the Bush family or this administration in this war?

SNOW: Yeah, the President. The President is in the war every day.

Q: Come on, that isn’t my question –

SNOW: Well, no, if you ask any president who is a commander in chief –

Q: On the frontlines, wherever…

SNOW: The President.

Yeah, right. The closest that douchebag ever got to the frontlines was the day he dressed up like a flyboy and got flown to the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln off the coast of San Diego (to the tune of about $1 million in taxpayers’ money), to stand underneath a banner announcing “Mission Accomplished” and prematurely (by four years and counting) assert that “major combat operations” in Iraq had ended. Wevvy wevver wev.

    Well, at least we know who the REMF wankers are in this war.

  2. if you ask any president who is a commander in chief

    As opposed to one who staffs it out to a “war czar.”

    Damn. Tony should’ve been laughed out of the room immediately on that note. There shouldn’t have been a single follow up from any reporter in the room that didn’t nail him to the wall for that ridiculous assertion.

  4. remember tony playig the flute at the washington talent show? when i saw that i said to myself

    he would choose something you fucking play sideways

  5. As the late Molly Ivins said, during Vietnam he bravely protected the skies over Denver from the Viet Cong.

    Remember, NO-ONE has suffered more than him and Laura during this whole debacle either. That poor little baby.

    Y’all forgot his Thanksgiving trip to Baghdad a couple of years back, when he snuck in, showed up in the cafeteria (not the frontlines) with a big plasic turkey and a grin from ear to ear, then snuck back out.

    SNOW: Yeah, the President. The President is in the war every day.

    Have we forgotten the possible traumas that threaten this brave leader? The fear of travelling anywhere which has war crimes legislation, the endless misery of chants of protest wafting in from “free speech zones” hundreds of meters outside his little bubble, the pages of newspapers extracted for his benefit mutilated by all the criticism being cut out?

    Truly, war is hell and heavy is the head which believes it is wearing a crown.

    Speaking for myself, that particular incident is not so much ‘forgotten’ as it is ‘buried in the nether reaches of my psyche so that I can get through the day without being overwhelmed by RAGE’.

    Smug bastard. Someone should have forcibly inserted that turkey in a certain ‘undisclosed location’ guaranteed to wipe away that vile smirk.

  12. Oh *whew*.

    For a moment there I was afraid we’d actually venture into reality. It’s nice that Snow veered off into Bollocksland again.

    …and of course the flight-suit photos inspired the ever-holy drive to eliminate discernible turgidity ….!

  15. To be fair, Snow is correct. There is no more dangerous place to be during a war then in a building surrounded by walls and armed people ready to kill at any hour of the day. Plus, sometimes if you see one of the explosions or images of the dead on an HDTV, it is pretty traumatic.

    Just the other day when I was driving home to my suburban home, there was a newspaper blowing on the road and a cardboard box. I got jittery wondering if the paper may cover my air intake or there could have been something sharp in the box. My heart quickened and I could taste the danger. I knew then that I was on the front lines
