The Daily Show: Tony Snow-job

icon Download icon Download (h/t Heather)

Tony Snow was Jon Stewart's guest last night on The Daily Show, proving you can take the Bushie out of the White House, but you can't take the delusional neo-con rationality out of him. There's always this hope that Stewart will eviscerate (metaphorically, of course) these apologists for the Worst. Presidency. Ever. any time one agrees to come on the show, but that's never been Stewart's style. Sometimes you get further when you don't have both barrels blazing. But even if he had discarded his gentle prodding, that bubble of denial in which Snow comfortably sits look way too thick for Stewart to actually get through.

STEWART: He's a terrific leader...how is that?

SNOW: Okay. Number one, no...

STEWART: I mean that seriously, my definition of a leader is to make tough decisions and then convince people to support them actively and follow you, not...you know, he says, well, I'm not popular because I make tough decisions. Maybe they're wrong...you know, I could say we should wear coats made out of puppies and nobody wants to do it and I'm like "What a great leader, look at me! It's unpopular!"

SNOW: Coats made of puppies!?!?! Oh my God...

STEWART: But he's basically saying...settle down...he's basically saying "Look how unpopular I am...I'm a leader!"
