B Boys Give Nods To Snow, Rove, Gore

Reported by Deborah - May 20, 2006

After several long minutes rehashing the rehash on immigration, The Beltway Boys, dispensed four up arrows in a row during their weekly ups & downs segment. Hayden, Snow, Rove and even Al Gore got Mort and Fred's approval this week. Tony Snow was their shining star while the support for Al Gore was less glowing for sure. 5/20/06

Tony Snow was given good marks for "his command of the issues" and ability to be stern with the press corp. A clip was shown of Snow barking down an ABC correspondent while maintaining a pleasant , friendly expression.
"Jessica, how many times do I have to answer the same question?" Snow whined but in a charming way of course.
The B Boys claimed that Snow was the best thing to happen to Bush since Sam Alito and Fred Barnes said,
"Karl Rove may be the brains but Tony Snow is the best public advocate for the President."

Karl Rove's up arrow was just a way to show that Rove is still operating as a public figure. A clip was shown of Rove putting down polls and the media. He referred to polling as a mania claiming it was a substitute for good reporting adding a poorly executed joke about a Betty Ford Clinic for polling addiction. Fred Barnes took the opportunity to discredit the accuracy of polls in general coming out with this gem about 2004 exit polling.
" Poor John Kerry thought he had won the election. So did I. It was a bad sampling."

Al Gore got two teases which had that nasty Fox edge to them.
"Al Gore is out of his funk but is he really planning a comeback?"
" He took a couple of trips down the green carpet and came back a new man."

Kondracke announced that global warming really exists and the President agrees which somehow gave the impression that Gore was on the right track. Barnes then showed a quick clip of Gore on SNL last week declaring it very funny. Considering the reception Gore is usually given on this show, today should be considered high praise.
