Why Does The Only Public Official Dumber Than The President Have To Be A Lady?

We are all for admitting it when we don't know something. And so is White House spokespretty Dana Perino. During a recent White House briefing, she admitted on the NPR show "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me", a reporter referred to the Cuban Missile Crisis. "I was panicked a bit because I really don't know about . . . the Cuban Missile Crisis," said Perino. "It had to do with Cuba and missiles, I'm pretty sure...I came home and I asked my husband," she recalled. "I said, 'Wasn't that like the Bay of Pigs thing?' And he said, 'Oh, Dana.'" Seriously, no, the point was that it wasn't like, oh man, Jesus Christ. Anyone out there read 13 Days? It's seriously, like, the least complex, most Cosmo-simple foreign policy book ever written, and I remember thinking, when I read it, "Man, this book is so idiotically simple, a true, like, idiot could read it." So idiot, try reading! It's a neat idea! [Wonkette]
