So Tony Snow is now the face that the press sees when they want to ask the White House a question. There’s no doubt that Tony Snow has been able to answer some real hard hitting questions in the past, and there’s no doubt that he’s got a brilliant opinion to spice it up with.
Media Matters is offering some interesting tidbits about Mr. Snow. You guys can check it out for yourselves here.
Tony Snow used to be a member of the world renowned “Free Republic” forums that we can all read when we want to find a cesspool of conservative knee jerk reactionaries and crazy people. Obviously as soon as this was found out, Free Republic deleted Snow’s account and all posts that he had partaken in. That doesn’t stop internet savvy folks from using tools such as archive.org to dig up his past opinions. I hope we find out soon what interesting opinions he provided on those forums. For now, lets all see what other delightfully educated opinions Mr. Snow has had to offer in the past.
Today, evolutionary theorists find themselves at wits’ end because the fossil record provides no evidence of any species ever turning into another. We know species adjust to environmental conditions — ever notice how tall kids are these days? — and that natural selection does occur. But there’s nothing to vindicate the notion of an evolutionary leap.
This is from a recent column of his (some time from August ’05 I believe ). Simply brilliant though isn’t it?. Thanks for that one Tony. What other goodies do you have hiding in your basket?
Consider Vietnam. The conventional wisdom holds that America fought an unjust war there and lost. In fact, we embarked upon a noble war, analogous to the battle in Iraq, but we lost our will – in part because war protesters concocted tales of widespread viciousness and butchery
Hit the nail right on the head there Tony. No lies, deception, or strategic blunders in Vietnam, it was a great war that was lost because of protestors!
I wanted to turn this into a giant journal of more absurd tidbits of his but I’m running short on energy. Mayhap I’ll update it with more soon. For now, here’s some links to munch on.
