Tony Snow on Speed

Poor Tony. He has to come up with witticisms and analogies to make the case for S2611 (Hagel-Martinez.)

But he'll have to do better than this:

The White House on Friday said a Senate bill that would grant legal status to illegal immigrants is analogous to a traffic law that allows a speeder to pay a fine and continue driving.

"If you had a traffic ticket and you paid it, you're not forever a speeder, are you?" White House Press Secretary Tony Snow said in response to questions from The Examiner.

Uhhh---Tony---did White House Counsel advise you that civil and criminal law are interchangeable? If so, you have a malpractice claim.

You just made Jim Sensenbrenner's case: it IS AMNESTY. "Not forever" is a key phrase, Tony.

I wish Tony would have stayed in radio.
