Snow Day

Tony Snow is leaving his White House Press Secretary job effective September 14.
According to MSNBC, President Bush will announce Snow's departure at 12:45pm ET.

Snow will be replaced by White House Deputy Press Secretary Dana Perino, who has occasionally done briefings for the President. He joins numerous other high-ranking Bush officials, including Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and Deputy White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove, leaving the Administration in recent weeks.

Snow battled cancer earlier this year and previously said he wanted to leave his post, citing the position's "low" pay.
This isn't really big news; he's been hinting at it for a while. I suspect that considering the shit he has to shovel and the ass-covering he has to do for the Bush administration, there isn't enough money in the world to make the job worth it. Also, he's still battling cancer, and the job has to be taking a toll on that.

I wish him good health and a long life, but I can't say I'm sorry to see him leave; he's got this smirk that makes you just want to smack him.
