• Tony Snow, Former White House Press Secretary, Dies of Cancer


    Tony Snow — former Fox News host and possibly the only competent Press Secretary (or staff member, for that matter) of the Bush Administration — died of colon cancer early this morning at the age of 53…

    "America has lost a devoted public servant and a man of character," President Bush said in a statement from Camp David, where he was spending the weekend. "It was a joy to watch Tony at the podium each day. He brought wit, grace, and a great love of country to his work"…

    Snow, who served as the first host of the television news program "Fox News Sunday" from 1996 to 2003, would later say that in the Bush administration he was enjoying "the most exciting, intellectually aerobic job I'm ever going to have."

    Yeah, I can imagine how that job would be quite a mental workout.

    We're sorry to see Tony Snow leave us like this (it's bad enough he left us with Dana Perino), and our hearts go out to his family for their loss.

    Here's Snow, back in October 2007, sitting down with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show…

    Part 2 is after the jump.
