Fox said it last night, but I wanted confirmation from a reputable news organization

It appears that Tony Snow will be announced as the new White House Press Secretary sometime this morning.

The jokes are going to write themselves.

On a more serious note, Snow has actually criticized and disagreed with the Bush administration. MediaMatters has been paying attention, and lists some suggested questions for the press corps to ask Snow when he steps behind the podium. ThinkProgress also has a selection of gems from Snow’s columns, posted on websites like TownHall.

(Thanks to NewsHounds for the tip.)

update (9:18am):
ThinkProgress posted “Tony Snow on the Issues,” another interesting collection of quotes.

update 2 (10:19am):
It’s official; the Decider-in-Chief has made the announcement:

My job is to make decisions, and his job is to help explain those decisions to the press corps and the American people.

Later in his comments, Dubya addresses Snow’s criticisms:

He's not afraid to express his own opinions. For those of you who have read his columns and listened to his radio show, he sometimes has disagreed with me. I asked him about those comments, and he said, "You should have heard what I said about the other guy."
