I know there’s a perfectly good reason George Bush hired Tony Snow, but forgive me for not being able to think of one. Unless it’s that Snow is the soul of wit. Here’s how today’s NY Times characterized one of his witticisms at a fundraising speech Snow delivered yesterday:
On the intellectual acumen of his boss: “He reminds me of one of those guys at the gym who plays about 40 chessboards at once.”
Huh? What gym was that? Gold’s Gym for Chess? And besides, the idea that George Bush could play even one game of chess, let alone forty simultaneously, is too feeble for words.
