Best wishes to our pal Tony Snow, who’ll undergo surgery next week to remove a growth in his abdomen. He’ll be out of commission until sometime next month (and hopefully no later):

Presidential spokesman Tony Snow is undergoing surgery Monday to remove a growth in his lower abdomen, a procedure he said was being done “out of an aggressive sense of caution” because he had colon cancer two years ago.

He said Friday that tests since the growth was discovered have been negative, but that doctors decided to remove it to be sure.

“Please do not leap to conclusions about this because we don’t know what this is,” Snow told reporters. “We know it’s coming out and I know I’ll be back soon.”

Last May, during his first press conference, Tony got emotional explaining the meaning of his cancer bracelet to the White House press corps. Our prayers are with him.

Compassionate Huffington Post readers have expressed their prayers for Tony’s well being. NOT! Just like Cheney and Bush 41, a massive amount of death wishes have been unleashed on Tony Snow (thanks to Sox for the tip):

Update: Gibby debates callers who defend the far-left’s “well-wishes” for Tony Snow.
