Dana Perino, self-righteous fool

By Richard Barry

Dana Perino, White House press secretary under President George W. Bush, doesn't like Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). In fact, she has called him  “poisonous.”

“He’s an absolutely poisonous figure in Washington, D.C., he’s been a disaster for the country,” she said on the Hugh Hewitt Show.

“I think a lot of the dysfunction in Washington can be traced directly to his doorstep."

And what moved her to such passionate criticism? It was a comment Reid made about W.
Reid quoted a New York Daily News column by Mike Lupica that noted that Republican White House hopeful and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush backed the nomination of Loretta Lynch as attorney general. Reid then quoted from a section of Lupica's column that attacked George W Bush.

“Bush didn’t just show grace in doing that, he also showed more common sense than his brother showed in eight years as president of the United States,” Reid said, quoting from Lupica's column, on the Senate floor on Tuesday.

And that was enough to send Perino over the edge as she said that Reid’s impending retirement is “very good for this country, for the world, and especially for the Democrats," adding, “I've never seen anything so abhorrent in my entire life as Harry Reid."

So, Dana, I'd like to help. You want to see something more abhorrent? What about Dick Cheney, or Liz Cheney or any number of Tea Party extremists who hide their racism, homophobia or misogyny behind a stated interest in "taking their country back."

If you want poison, look no further than your own party, which uses the stuff as fuel to motivate its base.
