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