Snow: I don't want to comment on the anatomical aspects of White House staff.
Q. Come on, Tony, It's just a factual question. Is his backside fat, or not?
Snow: Again, I don't think the question is appropriate.
Q. Well, how would you describe his backside?

Q. Well, isn't rotund the same as fat?
Snow: I'll leave it you in the press to parse the meaning of those words. I'm only authorized to say, his posterior is rotund.
