THE WIT AND WISDOM OF DANA PERINO, SUPERHERO SPOKESLADY From the press gaggle at the White House yesterday afternoon: “Q. I also wanted to ask you about Afghanistan quickly. What is the President’s reaction to the attempt on President Karzai, and doesn’t it raise questions about the stability of the government security forces there? MS. PERINO: Well, I would point back to one thing that the President has said, which is that when you are dealing with terrorists you have to be right 100 percent of the time and they only have to be right once.” Oh sure! Unlike with, say, rapists and car mechanics. [White House]
