Robert Anthony "Tony" Snow (June 1, 1955 – July 12, 2008)
White House Press Secretary, the third under President George W. Bush. Snow also worked for President George H. W. Bush as chief speechwriter and Deputy Assistant of Media Affairs. Snow served as White House Press Secretary from May 2006 until his resignation effective September 2007.
He was a shill for one of the most corrupt administrations in American History and still managed to be likeable. He died young, and quickly, a tragedy to be sure, but one can't help but feel that the toxicity of the post he held could not have helped.
