Show Snow the money

Outgoing White House press secretary, Tony Snow, is resigning, not for the usual "more time for his family" excuse but because he just can't make it on $168,000 a year.
Mr. Snow insisted that money, not health, was the reason for his resignation.

“We took out a loan when I came to the White House,” he said. “That loan’s now gone. So I’m going to have to pay the bills.
How's that for patriotic fervor? Happily, this does appear to be one if not the only brief moment of honesty that has emanated from the mouth of Snow in the last two years, other than the occasional issuance of the phrase, "I don't know."

Snow claims his health is good, thanks to his taxpayer-funded health care plan, and that health is not the reason for his departure. Bucks is what it comes down to. Once the book deals and on-air yapping contracts coming rolling in, expect the soon-to-be former press secretary to assume the new roll as Toney Snow.
