Where good taste, clear and distinct ideas, and graceful modulations tend to be viewed with lowering suspicion.

Just when we thought it couldn't get more faux-real ... here comes smoothness and ideology whipped together into snow pate.The only way it could be more interesting is if Snow actually retained his employment with Fox and would be sub-contracted, or out-sourced, to the White House.If I were an investigative reporter, it's a question I'd love to have to investigate ... but it's probably too absurd to imagine that could ever be the case (even tho' the end result of moving from Fox to take the job is likely very similar).
Snow has a job.
mr. Snow and his job are One.
The confluence is a bit heavyhanded, but that's probably an advantage in getting out the desired message. Plus, Mr. Bush and handlers cement the core demographic with this choice. The Fox News sensibility will take this as a cheese-positive development and be grateful.
Anything that places Bush in the heliocenter is complicity.FOX News isn't being rewarded, what FOX News is only one functioning piece of has just made another overt move, a cynical, sardonic, bitter gesture of defiance against something that is to it as it is to us. Vague, shape-shifting, implacable, impervious to bargaining. The Gnostics may have been biker-Mormons of their day but the concept of the demi-urge should not be abandoned with the rest of their raps.This thing has consistently proven itself to be bigger and uglier than the current consensus of almost any group with a public voice, and yet every step of the way these timid barnacles cling to the pilings, these honking yard-geese rushing with wings outspread, these grackles swooping at the soft and easy targets so conveniently passing by.Message: FOX is not subservient. Bush is. FOX is more evil than BushYou're supposed to attack him instead of them. Attacking him is doing what you're supposed to do.He's replaceable with minimal effort, they aren't.Yes it's lies, yes it's evil, but also yes it's very comforting to think you've seen through the lies, all the way to the heart of it. I hate it, and I'll never forgive myself for complying with it. Yet evil may be just another creature out there howling in pain or triumph, celebrating its latest meal or piece of ass. Snow is a crop-circle, a mutilated cow's asshole, a rumor of alien corpses in a warehouse in Nevada. He's the embodiment of the radar-jamming noise released across the virtual skies of our primitive vigilance.To stop us from finding out what's happening, and to stop us from figuring out what's going to happen next.
Must every comment asseverate recognition of Bush's puppethood? Isn't it a given?
