Pitching Snowballs, the WH press secretary

Via RawStory, Tony Snow, the new WH press secretary, reminds us why he's perfectly-suited to shill for the Bush Administration:

"Here is the unmentionable secret. Racism is not that big of a deal anymore. No sensible person supports it. Nobody of importance preaches it. It's rapidly and thankfully becoming an ugly memory..."
--Tony, Snow, Fox News Sunday, Oct. 5, 2003
Faux News, the Republican propaganda network, trained Snow well--completely and certifiably clueless. Pitching Snowballs, Tony will fit in just fine in Bush's WH.

Introducing his new press secretary, Bush remarked:
My job is to make decisions. And [Tony Snow's] job is to help explain those decisions to the press corps and the American people.
He understands like I understand that the press is vital to our democracy.
As a professional journalist, Tony Snow understands the importance of the relationship between government and those whose job it is to cover the government.
Bush translation: Tony is good at convincing people that he's telling the truth. Propaganda is vital to winning elections. That way my buddies and I can stay in power and legally loot the treasury. Welcome aboard, Snowball.
