Tony Snow, Ladies & Gentlemen, a big hand, please... remember to tip your waitress...

Performances like this are why Tony Snow won't do two shows a night... Nope, he just won't do 'em...
WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY TONY SNOW: Whether it passes or not, as you know, Terry, there have been a number of cases where civil rights matters have risen on a number of occasions, and they've been brought up for repeated consideration by the United States Senate and other legislative bodies...

Impudent Press Slug: You mentioned civil rights. Are you comparing this to various civil rights measures which have come to the Congress over the years?

MR. SNOW: Not -- well, these -- it --

IPS: Is this a civil right?

MR. SNOW: Marriage? It actually -- what we're really talking about here is an attempt to try to maintain the traditional meaning of an institution that has maintained one meeting for -- meaning for a period of centuries. And furthermore --

IPS: And you would equate that with civil rights?

MR. SNOW: No, I'm just saying that I think -- well, I don't know. How do you define civil rights?

IPS: It's not up to me. Up to you.

MR. SNOW: Okay. Well, no, it's your question. So I -- if I --

IPS: (Chuckles.)

MR. SNOW: I need to get a more precise definition.
Tony... you really did wind up in over your head in the deep end, here brother. For a moment, I almost feel sorry for you, then I remember you got it comin'. Hell, if Helen Thomas just up and got you between the eyes with a hypo dart, duct taped you into the back of her 1980 Volvo Wagon and left you doped up, dressed in lip stick and a leather jock strap at midnight down at the P-Street Beach park for all the rough traders, no court in the land would convict...

Tony Snow, ladies & gentlemen, he'll be here all week... try the veal...
