Umm.. Come Again, Tony?

From the “glass is half full” department:

Asked today whether the Bush administration “feels any responsibility” for the split among Palestinians, White House Press Secretary Tony Snow said that what reporters “really need to be thinking about” is that “the president of the United States did not bind people’s hands behind their back and throw them from rooftops. The president of the United States did not masquerade around with masks pulled over the face and slay people who disagreed with Hamas.”

Well, Tony, the preznit did sanction torture, among other things. But that clearly doesn’t have the same panache as chucking someone from a rooftop.

    Asked today whether the Bush administration “feels any responsibility” for the split among Palestinians, White House Press Secretary Tony Snow said that what reporters “really need to be thinking about” is that “the president of the United States did not bind people’s hands behind their back and throw them from rooftops.

    Snow then continued: “…at least, not as as far as you people know.”

    The President did not shoot a man in Reno just to watch him die. He had other reasons. Well, one other reason.

  3. Tony definitely could’ve countered Hillary by referencing a Sopranos hit in his response.

    Yeah! That’s Cheney’s job.
