White House spokesman Tony Snow got a rock star’s wecome, the standing ovation overwhelming the trumpet fanfare that welcomed him to the podium.
Snow’s remarks made it clear that he’s an honors graduate of Bush Administration Messaging school. His remarks on defending the family started and ended with repeated references to the 9-11 terror attacks. And he repeatedly used the word “heart.” Along the way he reminded participants of Bush’s support for the anti-gay “Marriage Protection Amendment.” Oh, and 9-11. And the “miracle” of Bush’s appearance on the debris pile. Just in case you forgot.
