and I thought he was just insulting our intelligence

When White House Press Secretary Tony Snow thanked veteran journalist Helen Thomas for voicing the “Hezbollah view,” I thought he was just dishing out the usual Republican snark that equates any inquisitiveness with treason. But, it turns out, Snow was also being a racist (again).

You see, as lapin points out, Thomas is the daughter of Lebanese immigrants.

Why the rest of the WH press corps didn’t gasp in horror and catcall for an apology is really beyond me—Snow was really insulting all of them, after all. Instead, that moment passed, and the group went on to chuckle as Snow also mocked the UN.

A class act all around.
