Newly resigned White House press secretary Tony Snow gets top billing in the latest list of "notable quotes" compiled each week by the Media Research Center.
CNN's Suzanne Malveaux: "How does the president regain the credibility that he needs to convince the American people that that's true [that the Iraq surge is working], Tony?"
Mr. Snow: "Well, you know what Suzanne, your credibility rating — journalists' credibility ratings — are lower than the president's."
It so happens that "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" was a favorite film of President Franklin D. Roosevelt — or so reveals the record keepers at the National Archives, where the 1937 animated feature will soon be screened as part of its Presidential Film Favorites series.
The G-rated movie, which captured an Academy Award, was Walt Disney's first full-length animated feature in color, and tells the story of a beautiful princess who finds friendship with seven dwarfs and love with a prince, but only after fleeing from her wicked stepmother.
As Roosevelt would have told the princess, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."
