in which i was almost sorry

so, the other day, i wrote this post, about the ridiculousness going on with the whole U.S. attorney firing scandal in which i called out/made fun of/expressed my pure hatred for tony snow.
and, wouldn't you know it? like, three days later, he had to come down with cancer.
and i really felt bad for a minute.
i mean...
maybe i've led a fortunate life...
but i have never hated someone enough that i would wish cancer upon them.
i'm a horrendous bitch, sure. but even i am not that heinous.

but, here's the deal:
i still don't wish cancer upon the man. i don't wish him or his family any of the physical or emotional pain that comes with it.

but, i have to say this...
when i hear that tony snow is taking time off because a malignant mass was found in his stomach?
my first thought is, how many lies do you think you can swallow, how many times can you stand in front of the public and perpetrate those lies, before you make yourself physically ill?

now, of course, i am no scientist.
i am in no way advocating the position that people get cancer because they deserve it--clearly, that just is not the case.

but maybe it is possible that certain lifestyles are poisonous.
i don't know.
but, seeing as how i get a nauseated every time i hear this man speak, it doesn't surprise me a bit that he's come down with a stomach tumor.

i was going to write a really detailed post here, with many examples of tony snow blatantly lying to the american people.
at this point, i'd rather get to bed, so i'll leave you with one (slightly funny) example.

one of the many things that tony snow likes to talk about in an attempt to give me a stroke is his belief that evolution is just a wacky theory made by mad-scientist lunatics, with absolutely no evidence to back it up.
his favorite criticism is to point out, when advocating 'intelligent design,' that the theory of evolution is based mainly on the idea of 'missing links,' rather than actual links that can be seen, examined, and discussed in a real way.

and, people? i really wish i possessed the follow through to write an actual post, with actual quotes and research...i simply don't feel like it. however, you can google 'tony snow and evolution' and very quickly come up with all sorts of quotes, should you so desire.

instead of doing all that actual compelling and well supported writing, i'd rather just provide the 'missing link.'

mr. snow?
here, just for you, i will reveal to the internet the 'missing link' that you've been so concerned with.



i hope you feel better soon.
i hope you overcome the cancer: the one in your stomach, and the one you've chosen to defend until now.

Seems kind of insulting to monkeys, doesn't it?

Nobody wants anybody to get cancer. I think most people can differentiate between political disagreements and wanting somebody to die or something like that.

Hey, someone can have cancer and still be a dick. And anyone so quick to throw away 150 years of scientific endeavor and discovery while suffering from a disease that can only be treated and potentially cured by using the basic principles of evolution is a dick, at least in my book.

I hope makes it through this illness. I also hope that if he does, he won't have such a shitty opinion of scientists

LMAO! I looove those pics!

And I know you wouldn't want to wish cancer on anyone, you are not that mean. It is ironic that he has gotten cancer after all of his mailgnant lies thought. I do hope he recovers.

just for the record, those are not monkeys. Unless of coarse regarding the ones with hairless faces. The monkey has a tail. Our ancestors do not!

I don't wish cancer on the man, either, of course, but Jeez, evolution as a wacky theory? That nearly makes my head explode. And I have those simian GWB photos in my sidebar just so I can remind myself once in a while that I'm no tthe onlly one who sees him that way.
