News: USA Today runs Tony Snow op-ed

Just in case USA Today readers hadn't heard the White House's perspective on Gonzales in its June 11th edition ("White House: No-confidence vote on Gonzales meaningless"), the paper published an op-ed by White House Press Secretary Tony Snow to underscore the point.

Gonzales doesn't deserve this. He is a man of great dedication and integrity. He has earned the president's trust, and the nation's, as the leader of the largest law-enforcement agency on earth at a time of chilling and constantly changing global peril.

Why trust a middle man when you can write the story yourself?

POSTSCRIPT: Snow also held a press briefing. He fielded two interesting questiosn near the end:

Q: But can I just follow on that? How do you declare an end to the war on terror?

MR. SNOW: I don't know.

Q: Does the President disagree with the idea of a preemptive military strike on Iran, which continues its attempt to produce nuclear bombs, or does he agree with President Truman's preemptive A-bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki?

Clearly no tertium quid there.
