Welcome, Tony Snow!

A marriage made in heaven. "Fair and balanced®™©" Fox News 'reporter' is the new White House Press Secretary. His journalistic credentials are impressive, including the venerable Washington Times.

Sean Hannity must be somewhere, crying hot tears of frustration.

A, you have a lot of UN-common sense. Apropos of freedom of speech/press and Neil Young, I was at an anti-war-in-Iraq rally (seems so long ago). People were tossing out songs for others to join in. I started singing with another person,
"1, 2, 3, what are we fighting for? Don't know and don't give a damn. Next stop is Vietnam." We were shushed because that tune didn't have the right, errr, correct feeling tone. Amazing, Gracie. Were we too far left of nostalgia? I loved the story of the N. Young experience.

i have some media credentials ... but damn that Tony Snow, he's got me beat, he used to run the editorial page for the reincarnation of Jesus Christ on Earth, in neoJesus' rag The Washington Times.

I never got a newspaper paycheck straight from God before. I can't fight that.

It will be Highly Amusing to see if Helen Thomas (who used to work for UPI before the Moonies bought it) asks snow any hardball questions about this new quantum validation of weirdo Apocalyptic right-wing fundamentalism. Snow appears to have written columns attesting to his rejection of Natural Selection and his belief in Intelligent Design. Questions to the new Press Secretary about that -- No Child Left Behind was a federal legal window requiring every public school to re-write every curriculum, and the Fundies began diving in with Intelligent Design.

Neil Young's got a new CD out called "Impeach Bush," with a song of the same title. The other night on one of those Entertainment shows, a pretty young twinkie pulled the assignment to interview Young. Her first question, she looked straight into his eyes:

"Impeach Bush -- now what, exactly, is this CD about?"
