Tony Snow, Rest In Peace

Tony Snow, 53, passed away last night after a protracted and courageous fight against cancer.

Michelle Malkin, Doug Powers, Gateway Pundit, Hot Air, Gina Cobb, Macsmind, The Corner and BizzyBlog have the tributes.

Update: True to form, the Associated Press (Douglass Daniel, in this case) couldn't resist taking one last swing at Snow.

With a quick-from-the-lip repartee, broadcaster's good looks and a relentlessly bright outlook — if not always a command of the facts — he became a popular figure around the country to the delight of his White House bosses...

Critics suggested that Snow was turning the traditionally informational daily briefing into a personality-driven media event short on facts and long on confrontation...

Stay classy, Democrats:

• Daily Kos: "When a bad guy dies, we should rejoice, not sing his praises of wish him anything by scorn"
• Huffington Post: "Comments are closed for this entry"
• Pish Posh: "Another one bites the dust"
• Yak Milk: "Tony Snow Was A Hatchet Man For Fox News’ Fascism"

Stay classy.

Rest in peace, Mr. Snow. It was not my privilege to know you, but my thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends.
