My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Tony Snow, RIP 

I never met him, didn't know him, have no reason to be touched by his death.

Except that, for some reason, the news of his passing yesterday morning hit me like a kick in the belly.

Tony Snow was everything I think conservative commentators should be: eternally affable, quick, funny, with a complete command of the facts. He was a happy warrior. But, more importantly (politically), he seemed to always keep his eye on the big picture--he never got bogged down in the minutia, even though he certainly had a firm grasp on it. Had I been a broadcast journalist, I would have worked hard to emulate Tony Snow.

If the personality that came through on the TV is even a fraction of what he was like to the people who knew and loved him, than they have an enormous hole in their world. My prayers go out to them.
