Cancer and Karma

What is it with the Dickensian names of people on the Bush team? They seem so... allegorical. So self-disclosing. Monica Goodling? Karl Rove? Peter Pace?

Of course, one of my favorites is Tony Snow. That guy is so bent he needs the jaws of life to get his trousers on. Here's Snow on the secret email accounts for White House staff:

But those email accounts were set up, A, on a model based on the prior administration, which had done it the same way, in order to try to avoid Hatch
Act violations. And we’ll just — we’ll leave it at that. I mean, these were designed precisely to avoid Hatch Act violations that prohibit the use of
government assets for certain political activities.

If you believe one word of that I've got Elvis tickets to sell you. It's clear from the PowerPoint presentation Lurita Doan had her peole sit through, that the Hatch Act is of no concern whatsoever to this White House.

I wonder if perhaps Tony Snow's toxic consciousness of being an asshole may've manifest the metaphor in his cancer. Probably not, but isn't it pretty to think so?
