On Monday, White House Press Secretary Tony Snow is set to undergo an operation. The Associated Press reports the surgery is to "remove a growth" in Snow's lower abdomen. Snow, you may recall, is a surviver of colon cancer.
Dean Barnett at TownHall.com noticed that outpouring of well wishes from Huffington Post commenters:
Naturally, the Huffington Post community weighs in with its own unique form of sympathy. A few samples:
- “Sure holding all that bulls**t in your gut would make anybody sick..!”
- “The growth in his abdomen is his head stuck up his a**. F**k him!! He is pure lying scum and should die ASAP!!”
- “You can only swallow so much............can you say karma.................”
Of course, some posters wished Snow well in that charming HuffPo way:
- “I’m sorry to hear about this for Tony, I hope it is all
good news for the guy. Tony may be a BushCo whore but nobody deserves
to have cancer, it’s a terrible desease that has caused far too much
misery to my family and many, many more.”
Barnett also says he saved a screenshot to prove it "if and when this thread disappears down Arianna's memory hole."
