How Does the Man Put Food on His Family?

White House mouthpiece, Tony Snow, announced that he will be leaving his post at the White House, but he didn’t set a specific date for his lectern abandonment. It could be as early as next month. Come December, it seems that, for poor Chimpy, it will be:

From CNN:

Snow told conservative talk-show host Hugh Hewitt on Thursday that “financial reasons” may prevent him for serving the remainder of his boss’s presidency.

“I’m not going to be able to go the distance, but that’s primarily for financial reasons.” Snow said. “I’ve told people when my money runs out, then I’ve got to go.”

According to The Washington Post, Snow makes $168,000 as the White House spokesman.

(“You’re working hard to put food on your family.” β€”Presidential candidate George W. Bush, Nashua, N.H., Jan. 27, 2000)

Poor Tony–in both senses of the word! A lousy $168,000 a year? He’s probably on food stamps! I bet he’s living in his car with the kids and the little woman!

Luckily, in this country, employers are clamoring to hire ordinary, everyday people for way more than $168,000 a year, especially when they are stricken with colon cancer!

On a completely unrelated note, I thought you kids might like to reflect on what the minimum wage is in this country.

  1. Hello Nonnie!! πŸ™‚

    Just like in America, we in Britain can’t wait to find out who will replace Tony Snow Chimpy!! πŸ˜€

    Your minimum wage table made me depressed for Americans, but happy for the UK, once I had checked out this Wikipedia page.

    Essentially what it says is that the top 15 bestest countries for minimum wage, in terms of converting it to an annual wage in international dollars (whatever they are), are:

    1. Ireland: $18,842
    2. Australia: $18,382
    3. Belgium $17,879
    4. Monaco $17,502
    5. United Kingdom $22,368
    6. Netherlands $17,015
    7. France $16,668
    8. Austria $16,529
    9. San Marino $16,515
    10. New Zealand $15,822
    11. Israel $14,683
    12. Canada $14,444
    13. Luxembourg $12,844
    14. Japan $12,493
    15. United States $12,168

    I put UK in 5th place because UK never much likes shouting out about its achievements (just as long as we beat France).

    Part of the problem that US has when comparing itself to other countries nowadays is that US credibility is on the decrease in relation to the rest of the world. This means that tough times in America seem that much tougher when compared to what the rest of the world is doing.

    In the same way that your president seems much worse than presidents in other countries 😦

    i should have added that the standard of living is going to skyrocket since the new minimum wage legislation was enacted:
    3 step increase is scheduled as follows:

    $5.85 – Summer of 2007
    $6.55 – Summer of 2008
    $7.25 – Summer of 2009

    wow!! that $2.10 an hour is going to change some lives!!! πŸ™„ where will they find room to build all the new mansions?

    Excellent spoof, nonnie… and, so telling!

    I hadn’t thought of the oxymoron “poor Tony” until you called it to my attention. Cute! But, those Christmas ornaments are downright scary!

    “Financial reasons?” Will this be the new “to spend more time with my family?”

    Black is white. Up is down. Get used to it.

    they will start using financial reasons so that people will (erroneously) think that these assholes made some kind of sacrifice for their country. however, we all know that their “service” was the prerequisite for their millions-of-dollars jobs with the rethug elite. snow and rove and even scooter will make millions of dollars in speaking fees or for crappy memoirs while the blood of hundreds of thousands of people is still drying on their hands.
