I’ve always found the title of the website Kevin Drum asked:clever and amusing. When I’m running political campaigns, I often like to recruit a press secretary who has an opposing personality, appearance and speaking style to that of the candidate. It seems the White House must have had the same idea.
It’s hard not to wonder if this is all some kind of weird misdirection from the White House, though. I honestly don’t understand why they’re seemingly so set on Snow. What exactly does he bring to the table that’s so unique?
TONY SNOW HAS A GIGANTIC HEAD [snip]
The biggest fucking head this side of. I don’t know where FOX finds these fucking hydrocephaloids to do its news shows – Easter Island, maybe, or the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade – but somebody needs to find that place and destroy it, because enough is fucking enough already. I don’t watch FOX News, but sometimes I have to flip by it, and everytime it’s like fucking Attack of the Head People over there. If you look into Tony Snow’s eyes you can see there’s a midget sitting inside his head pulling all the levers and cranks that gives robot Tony Snow his lifelike animatronic reactions. I’ll swear right now on a stack of dead grandmothers, if the Bush administration tries to subject the country to this kind of phrenological freak show, there’s going to be an uprising that will make the Boston Tea Party look like a fucking tea party!
The last thing we need in Washington are more hydrocephaloids, but at least this will keep the photoshoppers busy for a while. Props.
