"Oh, Dana ..."

This mostly just makes me sad, but The Hitmaker's favorite Republican spokesmodel, Dana Perino, had the classiness / humility to appear on NPR's "Wait, Wait, Don't tell me ..." and admit she didn't 'really' know what the Cuban Missile Crisis was about ... beyond, you know, Cuba and missiles.

Appearing on NPR's "Wait, Wait ... Don't Tell Me" over the weekend, Perino said she "panicked" when she got the Cuban missile crisis question because she wasn't exactly sure what the Cuban missile crisis was. "I really know nothing about the Cuban missile crisis," Perino said. "It had to do with Cuba and missiles, I'm pretty sure."

Perino said she went home that night and asked her husband, "'Wasn't that, like, the Bay of Pigs thing?' And he said, 'Oh, Dana.'"

I mean hey - we can't all be perfect! But we don't all get to be press secretary for the President, either.

Next time the movie Thirteen Days comes on cable, she should really watch it.
