Burma Shaving

Dana, Dana, Dana!

I thought you were great last week when as the new presidential press secretary you overruled the gerbils in the White House press office and restored the president’s amusing slip of the tongue -- “childrens do learn”-- to the official transcript.

On Monday, I tuned to C-SPAN for your daily briefing and arrived in the middle of your statement: “Reports about very innocent people being thrown into detention, where they could be held for years without any representation or charges, is distressing.” Ms. Perino, I thought you were going 2-for-2 in the doing and saying the right things department.

But transcripts are so much trouble! I looked and found that you were talking about Burma. Not about Guantanamo.
