Tony Snow’s cancer has returned. It’s in his liver.
Best wishes to him.
Deputy Press Secretary Dana Perino made the announcement today, and added instructions from Snow to reporters: “Tell them not to bug me.”
What a class act.
UPDATE: Speaking of class acts, Charles Karel Bouley, blogging at the Huffington Post, has this lovely quote:
I hear about Tony Snow and say to myself, well, stand up every day, lie to the American people at the behest of your dictator-esque boss and well, how could a cancer NOT grow in you. Work for Fox News, spinning the truth in to a billion knots and how can your gut not rot? I know, it’s terrible. I admit it. I don’t wish anyone harm, even Tony Snow. And I do hope he recovers or at least does what he feels is best and surrounds himself with friends and family for his journey. But in the back of my head there’s Justin Timberlake’s “What goes around, goes around, comes around, comes all the way back around, ya..”
. . . .
Now, I’ve been brutally honest above, and may have offended some, and for that I’m sorry. Again, I don’t want Tony Snow to suffer and die of cancer. But like many this morning, I had the thought.
Note well, Glenn Greenwald: this is not an anonymous commenter. It is a blogger at one of the top left-wing blogs on the Internet.
Of course, many of the anonymous commenters are with him.
P.S. The commenters’ statements would be meaningful to Glenn Greenwald if 1) you had to register to comment at the Huffington Post; and 2) similar hateful comments about right-wingers had appeared on previous Huffington Post posts; and 3) those previous hateful comments, along with the current hateful comments, had not been deleted. [Bystander hands Patterico a note.] Wait — this just in: all of those things are true.
Well, then. Stand by for the Greenwald denunciation!
UPDATE: Jim Treacher doesn’t wish harm on Charles Karel Bouley. But he had the thought.
