bloodsnowOhmygod – how much more blatant can the Media-ocracy be! Yesterday, President Bush named Tony Snow, a talking head from Fox News, as his new press secretary. A corporate sponsored mouthpiece for a corporate sponsored administration. How painfully appropriate!

Just another slash to the wrist of American Democracy, just another nick in the death of a thousands cuts as we watch in horror…

Add this latest action to hiring oilmen and corporate moguls to his cabinet 6 years ago and it doesn’t seem so blatant. It pales besides his thumbing his nose at the United Nations 4 years ago. But take all of it, each little razor scratch to our sense of common decency and ability to get along with the rest of the world and we are bleeding to death.
