Big day for the back stabbers!

Does “I’ll be back” be enough to send chills up and down the spines of the MSM press corps after Tony gives his own personalize “snow job” on them?

Kokonut on April 26, 2006 at 11:30 PM

Now THAT’S an image I would pay for on a shirt.

Clark1 on April 27, 2006 at 1:15 AM

I love it! That’s exactly why the libs merely TALK about removing W. They’d never actually try it ’cause they’re all scared to death of Cheney!

Jezla on April 27, 2006 at 2:07 AM

“When you’ve got two buzzards coming at you”….they would be Helen Thomas and David Gregory….just make certain your aim is right, Tony.

doingwhatican on April 27, 2006 at 4:09 AM

Those buzzards aren’t going after Tony. They always circle the WH Press Room, or at least they do when Helen Thomas is present. If she isn’t carrion now, it sure looks like it’s only a matter of time.

Pablo on April 27, 2006 at 5:27 AM

Helen Thomas can’t be killed by a bullet……A wooden stake through the heart is the only way to kill the undead!!

Fandango on April 27, 2006 at 6:59 AM

Rumor had it that Helen Thomas died several years ago….but the New York Times dug her up.

doingwhatican on April 27, 2006 at 7:11 AM

Jezla has it right.

I absolutely LOVE the fact that Cheney strikes mortal fear in the hearts of the lunatic fringe. Although his unpopularity in the polls is mostly undeserved, I’m sure the administration sees the one benefit of it. Cheney is a walking impeachment insurance policy.

That Machiavel…I mean that Rove is a genius!!

Beautiful PhotoShop work on your site. Is that David Lunde’s work?

high_desert_wanderer on April 27, 2006 at 8:13 AM

No, HDW, that’s one of mine.

Allahpundit on April 27, 2006 at 8:29 AM

Great pic there Allah, but I don’t get the association with the two buzzards link. Unless Drudge screwed it up.

geekrunner on April 27, 2006 at 8:35 AM

The two buzzards link is actually two separate links. One to Drudge and one to the comPOST. ??

geekrunner on April 27, 2006 at 8:37 AM

Spectacular work Allah. Mr. Lunde’s has been identified elsewhere, but this one wasn’t. I was curious.

Sign your work, it’s art!

high_desert_wanderer on April 27, 2006 at 8:38 AM

I just meant that these are two stories Tony will have a hard time spinning.

Allahpundit on April 27, 2006 at 8:38 AM

I wish Tony Snow would walk into press conferences strapped with a few high-powered firearms to keep the press in line, if you know what I mean. Especially the liberal ones (like there’s a difference. LOL.) Liberals are scared of guns, and reporters should be, if you know what I mean.

Don Cobaggio on April 27, 2006 at 9:38 AM

Fred Barnes was right in saying that the White House press conferences should not be televised. Remove the stage from those intent on destroying the Presidency while having Tony take to the talk show circuit where he (and the White House) will shine.

Fantastic pic! I love Cheney’s smile.

Ramos on April 27, 2006 at 10:19 AM

What a great site! I get informed and entertained. Love this thought..too bad Tony will only be able to take verbal potshots at those drama ghouls!

labwrs on April 27, 2006 at 11:00 AM

I wish he could take literal potshots at the liberal hotshots. Do you know what I mean? LOL

Don Cobaggio on April 27, 2006 at 11:04 AM

You people are a bunch of “right wing nut jobs” Helon Thomas is one of the sexist women in Washington

birdman on April 27, 2006 at 11:16 AM

I think the conference should be televised, but only after Tony does the following things:

1) Go to an elementary school (preferably one of those
tough, inner city, private ones) and do a question and
answer session with a third grade class.
2) Get a good length of that edited and put into a loop.
3) Add several ‘time out’ chairs in the back corners of the
White House briefing room.
4) Show the school film to the press room vultures, tell
them this is the level of decorum that is expected.
5) First ones to violate the decorum, Tony points to
the ‘time out’ chairs and says that the only way to ever
get selected again to ask questions is to serve a ‘time-
out’.
6) If the whole room gets rowdy, start the tape in loop and
start packing to leave the room. If they don’t settle
down, walk out and end the day’s session, leaving the
looped tape running.

Mike O on April 27, 2006 at 12:27 PM

Tony should announce new rules for the Daily Briefing.
1) Once the briefing is complete questions will be allowed.
2) In order to be fair people to ask questions will be selected on current number of viewers/readers they have according to categories
Network News
Cable News
Daily Newspapers
Others
3) If you ask a question about a subject not covered in the brief tell them no answer will be given since it wasn’t a topic of the briefing. Remind them gently that instead of trying to get a sound bite from him they might want to try and get out of the office and actually track down some sources that could answer that particular question. Oh yeah and next.
4) Even given the dense heads that the WH press corps has it shouldn’t take too long for them to get the message to ask relevant questions or wind up walking away with nothing.
5) Duplicate questions are not allowed. So if somebody from NYT asks a question and then somebody from CNN asks the same question the only response to the CNN reporter should be Next!

LakeRuins on April 27, 2006 at 1:21 PM

Hey LakeRuins
Maybe some of the bloggers like this site and drudge and others should sent ‘reporters’, that way we’d get a TON of questions allowed to ask

Hey Mrs. Malkin, I’d be happy to be one :-D

Defector01 on April 27, 2006 at 1:47 PM

No spin needed Allah, for the free rent for a year thing.
They NO LONGER QUALIFY…those are the key words.
I volunteered for quite a while and wjile most evacuated people are honorable, many evacuees never tried to do anything but find free rent, free food, etc. Many even called their friends to go to other states where things were easier or free. Some drove hundreds of miles for free furniture earmarked for others.
Again-back to this quote “told by FEMA that they are not eligible for such help and must either pay the rent themselves or leave.”
They do have choices: “nearly a third are receiving notices that they no longer qualify, FEMA officials said. For the rest, benefits are also being cut — they will have to sign new leases, pay their own gas and electric bills, and re-qualify for rental assistance every three months.”
FEMA probably found some non-qualified ‘residents’ and are just doing the right thing. Or next, the left will skewer FEMA for no Due Diligence… they can not win on this one.

The only bit of advice I could possibly have for T. Snow is to follow the Marines’ 11th General Order. He’ll be fine.

Kid from Brooklyn on April 27, 2006 at 5:26 PM

Okay, I want the t-shirt with that picture that says “democrats, make my day”…..

AtlantaRich on April 27, 2006 at 8:30 PM

In Prison…Life and/or “Venting” is quite easy…so to speak of such ‘Thangs.

In Prison, one has many choices…choice to be raped…choice to rape others…choice to Pimp out the weak, whilst protecting them from other weak ones…i’m talking choices here.

“Venting” in Prison?!? Such a luxury, or focus thereof, would be a waste of one’s survival time…trust me on that, since “Venting” is akin to talking in a threatening way.

Honorable Tony Snow…you will be in the FreeWorld, in front of a bunch of weak males, so be gentle towards them. Don’t grab their head, and bite into their nose…followed by blowing their blood into their lungs. Don’t even pluck their eyes from such skulls of stupidity.

Simply confront them with the *TRUTH*…simple as that.

Whatever. New Orleans shouldn’t have been rebuilt in the first place.

Tom Shakely on April 28, 2006 at 2:29 AM

I Love Dick and Tony! This is going to be big fun!
