I'm sorry that Tony Snow has died, and I am sure he was just as much a "nice guy" as the Washington press corps is now falling all over itself to tell us. But let's get real: As White House press secretary, Snow's job was to shovel out the Bush administration's lies and bullshit. That he did a better job of it than Scott McClellan, and that he did it with a smile, just makes it all the worse. Too many people have died as a result of Bush administration policies to wait even a day or two to tell the truth about Snow's role.
