This exchange occurred towards the end of Tony Snowâ€™s press conference yesterday:
Q One more, please. Can you confirm that Karl Rove received a copy of the Iranian proposal for negotiation sometime in early May, 2003?

MR. SNOW: I am sure that I know nothing about it. I will try to find out —
The man is not even trying any more. He was asked point-blank by a scum-of-the-earth reporter â€œAre you sure youâ€™re not lying?â€ And he didnâ€™t bristle, he didn’t spew? No reaction whatsoever? Breaking into doggerel:
He just let it go?
Is that the Tony Snow
We used to know?
