In the photo above, White House press secretary Tony Snow appears to be receiving a communiquÃ© from the mother ship, perhaps advising him to Abort! Abort! Or maybe he is experiencing a psychotic break, and the voices that only he hears are taunting him for having left a cushy job at Fox News to serve as lion tamer to an increasingly rebellious White House press corps. Yesterday, Tony attempted to offer his standard Snow job with regard to the Bush administrationâ€™s efforts to push through legislation that would sanction aggressive interrogation and treatment of detainees. Certain members of the press, including NBCâ€™s David Gregory, begged to differ with Snowâ€™s interpretive dance on the matter, in particular his stubborn refusal to acknowledge that such legislation would constitute a revision of the long-established Geneva Conventions. In the course of Snowâ€™s mad spinning, he had the audacity to say that former Secretary of State Colin Powellâ€”who recently expressed strong opposition to any such revisionâ€”was â€œconfused.â€? Boy, talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
