Rushing to be first....

I usually don't post more than once a day, but somebody's going to beat me to this way obvious Tony Snow joke if I don't jump first.

From the White House Briefing October 19, 10:22 am EST:

MR. SNOW: Again, as I said, we have, in fact, considered -- we consider lots of things. We've thought about partition, for a series of reasons --

Q Phased withdrawal?

MR. SNOW: -- again, you don't -- you withdraw when you win. Phased withdrawal is a way of saying, regardless of what the conditions are on the ground, we're going to get out of Dodge.

Q The 5 percent solution --


Q Non-starter?

MR. SNOW: Non-starter. a time of war you have shifting conditions, and you do have to adjust. That's the only way in which you can continue to pursue victory.

So we certainly are always considering new ideas, and we will reconsider old ideas to see if we think suddenly they have currency.

Q The best intelligence on when you may have something to assess is well after the election?

MR. SNOW: You're going to have to ask -- I think it's best to talk to Jim Baker and Lee Hamilton because they know the timetables on that.

Okay, say it with me, now: Shorter Tony Snow:


  1. IT'S TRUE! I saw him get up and head butt Jaime McIntyer and Helen Thomas.

  2. I'm invincible!

    (You're a loony).

  3. Heh heh heh... he said timetable.

  4. ROTFL.
    Do you think they're going to eat Snow in the winter? "bravely did he run away - away away away away! - When danger reared its ugly head he bravely turned his tail and fled, brave brave brave brave Sir Bushie"...


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
