I Don’t Know what “Arkansan is for Chutzpah”…..

…but I can smell bullshit a mile away!
Read the transcript of today’s Tony Snow presser. It’s at TPM Muckraker.

REPORTER: Tony, why do you … in your op-ed today you brought up the Clinton pardons, as well. Do two wrongs make a right? Is that the idea, like if Clinton did wrong …

SNOW: Well, this is … no, this is not a wrong, but I think what is interesting is perhaps it was just because he was on his way out, but while there was a small flurry, there was not much investigation of it. Now you’ve got President Clinton and Senator Clinton out complaining about this, which, I got to tell you, I don’t know what our Arkansan is for chutzpah, but this is a gigantic case of it.

Complicit, Convicted, and Commuted (the Musical!)

Get rid of this creep.

Nothing but an impolite louse,
Let’s rid DC of his stink,
Since he’s living in the White House,
I haven’t slept a wink.
