Speculation on New White House Press Secretary

After yesterday's announcement that Scott McClellan will be stepping down as President Bush's White House Press Secretary, attention turned immediately to possible replacements to succeed him. Here are brief profiles on two candidates:

One, let's call him Tony, served as a speech writer for President Bush and is currently a news host on Fox News. The other, "Bob," is an unemployed former press secretary who suddently lost his job after new management replaced his former boss. Who do you think would be the best choice?

The former speech writer is intelligent and honest--a good choice for the right. However, the second guy has been saying exactly what the left wants to hear, "No U.S. troops in Iraq," so maybe he would be a good choice for them.

Who said you didn't have a sense of humor, Woody?

But seriously folks, Tony Snow would - in my view - be great. He is not the grrr-dog type, however, he is very bright AND the way he leads hostile personalities is masterful.

Well it goes to show there never has been a lick of difference between the administraion and FOX News. A shill is a shill afterall.

and since I am not suppose to be rude...I am trying hard to follow the advance of my elders very long ago. Since I cannot say something nice...I will say nothing at all.

However, I believe in today's world that a press secretary is necessary for the White House. If that is true (and you determine that), whom ought the White House get to fill that job? Noam Chomsky?

Posted by tad at April 20, 2006 10:15 AM

Mark, you have a lot of nerve commenting about shills, which is all you have ever been for the democrats, MSM and the global warming crowd.


Posted by GM Roper at April 20, 2006 08:51 PM

Tony is a great choice!
Personally, I would have chosen Ann Coulter.
Watching her rip into the egotistical press corps would be
sweet. LOL!

Roper it's not a crowd, and I'm free to support and vote for anyone I chose. You may not get it, but the guys you cite are paid for by thintank shills promoting verified lies. If the Democrats were for something I'm not, I would say so and do. As it stands Republicans are the fools I'm against based on content and results.

Posted by Mark A. York at April 21, 2006 05:52 PM

Yorkie, you are so funny. Yes, you are free to support and choose, I said you are a SHILL for those folks, not that you couldn't support them. Snow is a reporter for Fox, he is an employee... would you call Dowd a shill for the democrats... would you call Woodward a shill for the Dems or perhaps Couric a shill? What a nutjob you are... someone from wingerville on the left for sure. Thinktank shills promoting verified lies... you mean like "no blood for oil?" How about Wilson told the truth? How about Valerie Plame was UNDERCOVER? Republicans may be fools right now, I'm quite angry at them and have said so in a number of posts recently (when was the last time you took on the democrats in your pitiful, non read blog? No wonder you can't get a job reporting, you can't write and you have the gall to say about your blog "the Wisdom and Punditry of Mark A. York..." They can see you coming a mile away you are shining yourself so brightly...

You are a pitiful little miscreant and I wish you would go away.

Posted by GM Roper at April 21, 2006 06:29 PM

Yes Wilson did tell the truth. So are the folks at Realclimate and Ross Gelbspan. Snow shills for the republicans just like Hume. How will this new job be different? Same station. Most journalists don't advocate for a party. Your's sure do. What a breakthrough.

Posted by Mark A. York at April 22, 2006 05:54 PM

"No wonder you can't get a job reporting, you can't write and you have the gall to say about your blog "the Wisdom and Punditry of Mark A. York...""

Actually I've had to turn down a couple newspaper gigs because they didn't pay enough to move to the pathetic red state towns. My wisdom comes from experience working for government agencies since 1989 as a scientist. That's still what I do. I would call you a pathetic counselor but my methods are a notich above yours. Several notches actually.

Posted by Mark A. York at April 22, 2006 06:02 PM

"Didn't pay enough"

Yeppers, and I suspect that when they saw you in action the job wouldn't have lasted long either.

"I would call you a pathetic counselor" Yeah, except I've been doing this for over 35 years and have always been WELL PAID to do it. ROFL, you are still a dweeb. Wisom and Punditry indeed! Bwahahahahahahahahaha!!!!

Posted by GM Roper at April 23, 2006 09:55 PM

I also might mention that your disdain for the good people in the "pathetic red state towns." says far more about your discernment than ever you intended.

Got news for you Yorkie, the inhabitants of the "pathetic red state towns" have far more class then you do.

Posted by GM Roper at April 23, 2006 09:59 PM

"If the Democrats were for something I'm not, I would say so and do."

"Most journalists don't advocate for a party."

Wow. Just wow. As to the former, all the democrats are "for" is to be "against" everything. As to the latter, you ARE kidding, right?

And finally, "Actually I've had to turn down a couple newspaper gigs because they didn't pay enough..." it couldn't be that the pay was comensurate with ability, could it? "My wisdom comes from experience working for government agencies since 1989..." That explains a lot.

Mark, it snowed in san francisco.....I imagine that snow is proof of global warming huh?

Just had to point that out oh bearer of the Great Reflective Pate, because only a creature that is devout in their religion would believe that snow equates to something getting warmer.

Posted by kender at April 24, 2006 08:44 AM

Another example of good natured wit, albeit with political overtones, eliciting the ire of those who simply do not have a sense of humor. If it is true that a sense of humor is a proof of intelligence, then we must conclude that . . . well, draw your own conclusions. But I think BEN USN has it right. Ann Coulter would be my choice.

Posted by Mustang at April 24, 2006 09:10 AM

Kender don't strain yourself trying to grasp two thoughts at the same time.

Well Roper when you get into national print for money please let us know. You couldn't even get into the local Rio Grande edition for free.

"Bloggers are forever telling us how easy journalism is, yet very few of them have ever really practiced it. Sure, they may have written opinion pieces that compare favorably to the work of Molly Ivins or Ann Coulter, but opinion writing is a tiny - and let's be honest, inconsequential - corner of the journalism world. Real journalism - the practice of adding to the store of public knowledge by reporting news - is a difficult, thankless, and often unpleasant task. Bloggers want no part of it. Everyone wants E.J. Dionne's job; no one wants to be Michael Dobbs."

I'll let you guess who said this.

Posted by Mark A. York at April 24, 2006 11:27 AM

York, are you spewing again?

"As it stands Republicans are the fools I'm against based on content and results."

That has to be one of the most profoundly stupid things I've yet seen coming from a leftist, and I've encountered quite a bit of "out there" garbage coming from your ilk.

Everything you Marx worshipping, blame America first, tax to the max and spend to the end, fetus murdering, aggressively atheistic, hypocritical, open-up-the-borders, two-dad-family clowns espouse poses a threat, either immediate or down the road, to the safety and financial survival, both privately and federally, of the American people and seeks to destroy every last vestige of American traditions.

Content and results!? HAH! Results for whom? Surely not anyone in THIS country.

All the policies you folks try to peddle lead inevitably to the subjugation of our country's ability to defend its citizens, higher taxes, govt micromanagement of the people's affairs, business people victimized by gratuitous lawsuits, etc...

Meanwhile, a Republican govt has been successful in cleaning up most of the economic mess left it by 8 years of Clinton, restrengthening our national defense venues and fighting a war on terror that might arguably have been nipped in the bud during the Clinton years if that particular POTUS hadn't been a liberal.

So, Markie, why don't you go crawl back under your flat, pink stone and cook Bubba or whoever, your significant other, some lunch?

Posted by Seth at April 24, 2006 12:06 PM

Oh Marky Mark-- you say these potential spokesmen are shrills for the Bush White House? That they work for think tanks? SO WHAT.

Every President chooses his press people. Their job is to promote their bosses agenda. Duh even my kid knows that...Did you??

And since you're such a prolific writer who has turned down paid oppurtunities, why haven't I EVER heard of you except for the comments you leave here????

Posted by Raven at April 24, 2006 01:35 PM

He is, to use a cliche, "a legend in his own mind".

Posted by Seth at April 24, 2006 01:59 PM

Ah yes the "mess" from Clinton is history now for certain. Gone are the halcyon days of a fat treasury now sitting in a bank under some foreigners' name instead of ours in the black. Such a pack of morons this.

Posted by Jake Elmore at April 24, 2006 03:28 PM

Do they pluck them straight from a news network? Of course when the manager is a former lobbyist and consultant for the Party I suppose that is where one would look.

Posted by Mark A. York at April 24, 2006 03:31 PM

Fetus murdering? Damn shame your parents hadn't better sense seth. Well it was a surprise for them I'm sure. Man overboard! Hard a port Bert.

Posted by Mark A. York at April 24, 2006 03:34 PM

Marky Mark is so mature now isn't he?

YOU haven't answered my question. How come I haven't heard of you before if you're so good???

I'm waiting...


Posted by Raven at April 24, 2006 06:01 PM

I don't know. There's quite pack of "good" people some haven't heard of. Why haven't I heard of you?

Posted by Mark A. York at April 24, 2006 06:05 PM

But since you are from New England and my family was one of the original European settlers, one could ask if you have any historic sites in your family? Or ever write one for National Park Service?


I have. Usually a hyjack stunt doesn't scare a real New Englander. At least not a real one.

Posted by Mark A. York at April 24, 2006 06:14 PM

Ah, yes, Elmore -- is that nic based on Jake and Elwood Blues, by any chance, or is it really you?

Let's see, now... the recession actually kicked in around 1998-1999, but according to the left(those leaning nearly horizontally to port), there was no recession(how could there be under Clinton, right?) until the very instant that Dubya beat Algore -- then BAM!, we were suddenly plunged into the vortex of a terrible, terrible recession. So powerful is Bush's evil that he was able to do this two months before even being sworn in. What a guy.

Then, to show us that his power is real and the recession trick wasn't a fluke, he conjures up a hurricane and sends it to New Orleans to wipe out some poor blacks.

You and Mark Dork must know each other. :-)

Posted by Seth at April 24, 2006 06:24 PM

Uh, Mr. Dork --

I figure you're one of those people who has never accomplished anything, never will accomplish anything, has few if any friends -- dating all the way back to when you were a kid and the only way other kids played with you was by beating you up --and, being a complete failure at all your endeavors(man, I wouldn't wish a depressing existence like yours on anybody!), being laughed at by the few women you used to try to date(before you gave up on women) and having nothing in your miserable life to be even remotely proud of, you use the Blogosphere to try to impress people you'll never meet in person with fantasies of an adequacy you'll never attain.

Now go home, get out in the kitchen and make some noise with the pots and pans. Bubba's probably waiting for his dinner.

Posted by Seth at April 24, 2006 06:49 PM

Mr. Dork --

So, what's yer pernt?

If your ancestor was a brave patriot, wherever he is now, he's probably cringing with shame as he watches you make a mockery of all he fought for.

You are pathetic.

Posted by Seth at April 24, 2006 07:08 PM

My ancestors proudly came from Ireland Marky Mark.
They were working class people who escaped the potato famines...came to Boston and settled in NH...

I don't claim to be a writer who is sought by newspapers.
I'm just an average person who happens to have a blog.
You're the one who claims fame.

Posted by Raven at April 25, 2006 05:58 AM

I'm a bit late to the party, sorry! Now, should I respond to all of Porky, err... York's comments? I have massive gas right now, so I think I shall.

York says, "I'm free to support anyone I choose." However, President Bush should not because Republicans are fools. Yes, York, you can support anyone you choose. Just because you choose fools and morons, that doesn't make you one, does it? I bet you support athletes, too...

York actually believes Wilson. If he really does, I think he's the only person on the planet (except for Sheehan and Gore -- and one could logically question if either of them are actually on this planet). He complains that Republicans support Republicans and they shouldn't; while Democrats do not support Democrats, but they should. Well, York's a moron and he supports morons -- is that as it should be or not?

York complains that he can't work as a reporter because he won't work in a red state and they don't pay enough. Apparently he's unaware that New York and California are blue state and pay more than every other state. Then again, he may have mistyped and meant to type "red PLANET" -- since that's apparently closer to his actual home.

Then Yorkie claims he's better than everyone else (a quite standard leftist tactic, I'm quite disappointed, spaz) because he has a "historic site" in his family. Loony tune, all it takes to have a "historic site" in your family is to know someone in government. Historic site means something that government wants to take away from private citizens, so I'm quite sure you'd support the entire country being declared an "historic site." Do you really think that people will look up to you because you own a piece of property? I'll give you a clue: only the infantile and immature of the left will.

Gee, I can't imagine why this loon has been banned from both left and right sites -- there's not much point in his ramblings, other than trying to impress others. Unfortunately, he's not even doing it in a way that would impress a 12-year old. But hey, I'll give him a "D" for effort.

Posted by Ogre at April 25, 2006 07:27 AM

Marky? Arer you still going on about those silly "books" you wrote?

You shoulda stayed in alaska, dork. Those envorinuts up there are more yoru kind of people.

Marky Mark says:
"I hate to break to the Irish Raven but anytime a small newspaper makes an offer to a reporting candidate it doesn't make the evening news. I get the idea these a bunch of stray kids still living with their parents because they can't do anything except troll around insulting people."

You're the one who brought this up, not me. I only asked you why you're not famous, as you came across as being so. You also come across as being snotty due to your heritage...JUST because your ancestors are of a "preferred" blood line doesn't make you or anyone else a better judge of history.
THAT has to be the stupidist statement I have ever read.
No wonder you're not famous. With thinking like that, it's a wonder anyone even reads you sorry ass site.

Posted by Raven at April 25, 2006 11:43 AM

York, you are banned from this site (assuming the IP banning program works) at any rate, ALL future comments of yours will be marked deleted by administrator. I have taken this action based entirely on your inability to contribute to the discussion. You have been asked to leave politely (and not so politely) and have refused to do so and now I take this step. DO NOT COME BACK
