So very vulgarMEAN OLD TOM COBURN BLOCKS DANA PERINO: With Tom Coburn still maintaining a blanket hold on 100+ administration nominees, he is inadvertently ruining everything for America’s Sweetheart, Dana Perino, whom Obamar had selected for the Broadcasting Board of Governors for some strange but ultimately very unimportant reason. Or maybe it’s what Coburn wanted all along; maybe he just hates her and can’t have her ruining the television. [Dave Weigel]

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • What Fresh Hell is This?

    All photos of Dana demand soft focus, that touch of Vaseline on the lens.

  • TakingAmes

    Well, she may be dumb as a box of rocks (Cuban Missile Crisis, anyone?) but she has a really cute haircut and she’s blond, so I don’t see any reason for Coburn to hate her so much. Except that she’s a woman. Oh, wait…

  • Beck Licks Seer Stones

    Dana Perino has two options over the next 13 days – she can find a peaceable resolution or risk going to war with a conservative senator. Coburn sent her a letter expressing his willingness to help, and a letter saying he wouldn’t budge. But she has no idea what to do there’s no historical precedent for this!

  • Lascauxcaveman

    Obamar’s just messing with tier heads now. He’s going to nominting Geo W Bush, Alberto Gonzales and Rummy for the next three whatevers.

  • Lascauxcaveman

    Heh, ‘tier’ is too a word, just not the one I was going for.

  • Lascauxcaveman

    And ‘nominting’ is what like in my herb tea.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Ah, Dana — how can something so pretty be so unappealing? Is it the childlike translucence of her complexion, the childlike transparency of her thoughts, or the combination of icy aloofness with complacent ignorance? At any rate, she reminds me of an empty refrigerator. Dana honey, when you open your legs does a light come on?

  • rafflesinc

    [re=572727]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: Obama’s supposed to be nominating someone for the supreme court vacancy any day now …

  • weejee

    [re=572730]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: You mean Coburn’s not a tier-head? But he works on so many levels. Like Limbo, where the appointments are; lust, where he keeps Dana, gluttony, avarice, sullenness, heresy, violence, fraud, and betrayal. Just like Dante said, DC is a divine comedy.

  • bfstevie

    Coburn to Perino: ‘You know what? You’re pretty … perky. I hate perky.’

  • Tommmcatt

    I bet you could store ice in her hoo-ha and never, ever lose even a single drop of water. She has that below-zero look to her…

  • Lionel Hutz Esq.

    I have to go with Coburn here. Now that she has been with a black man, she is despoiled and cannot be allowed in polite society.

  • Extemporanus

    A “blanket hold” is the old man/young girl version of the “long stroke”.

  • Extemporanus

    [re=572735]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Empty, huh?

    Last I checked, there was some leftover Chinese, an expired key lime Yoplait Light yogurt or two, a half-empty bottle of Zima, and economy-size tube of Zovirax in there.

    Who cleaned out Dana’s vagirator?! I was totally gonna finish that Zima, goddammit!

  • ArugulaTeleprompterz

    [re=572755]Extemporanus[/re]: Blanket hold = dutch oven

  • chascates

    No terrorist attacks on Bush’s watch = Broadcasting Excellence

  • priceofrice

    Will someone explain to me why in holy fuck Barry would nominate this empty-headed strumpet to the broadcasting board of governors?

  • Serolf Divad

    Man, I love Dana Perino… especially her hit single “Heart of Glass.”

  • Pop Socket

    Wingnut catfight.

  • trondant

    [re=572799]priceofrice[/re]: To spread her ignorance of the Cuban Missile Crisis far and wide?

  • Ruhe

    Now hold on a minute. I thought after she left the Bartlett administration Perino went on to work at the prestigious Miami CSI unit and was happily engaged there reassembling the bloody parts of exploded drug dealers. Why would she want to come back to the Federal Government now? Perhaps Coburn is just doing what he thinks is best for Dana.

  • germansteel

    Whenever I see that picture of Dana Perino and think about who she worked for, I get so conflicted I can’t stand it.

    I guess that’s why god invented the “hate-fuck”, huh?

  • engulfedinflames

    [re=572726]Beck Licks Seer Stones[/re]: nicely done.

  • Way Cool Larry

    Whatever else she may be, she’s still the most babelicious press secretary evah!

  • slappypaddy

    it doesn’t matter who barry nominates to anything, the game is afoot. he’s playing four-dimensional space-time fold ’em up against a bunch of flatlanders, just for the fuck of it, toying with the republicans the way a cat plays with a cricket. and as for the republicans, their blood has been infected with the slow-growing but ultimately paralyzing just-say-no fungus, latin name nancius reaganus, that they were first exposed to a generation ago. turns out they were the only ones who were not immune to it.

  • sati demise

    [re=572799]priceofrice[/re]: yea, me too, especially since she has be bad mouthing Barry every chance she gets. she is Cheneys bitch. Did he turn her out? Finding a new pimp is hard when you keep trashing anyone who is not in the friend of Dick circle jerk.

  • user-of-owls

    [re=572724]TakingAmes[/re]: Maybe he found out she was one of those rampant lesbians in southeast Oklahoma.

  • user-of-owls

    [re=572735]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Whatever else she is, she’s something else.

  • comicbookguy

    I’d place a hold on that.

  • Extemporanus

    [re=572783]ArugulaTeleprompterz[/re]: That was super hot, Carl. Super fucking hot.

  • greatgooglymoogly

    Caption: “I can fit THIS many fingers into my ass.”

    Please forget I just said that.

  • Cicada

    [re=572928]greatgooglymoogly[/re]: “I call this “Dana’s Double Shocker”.

  • comicbookguy

    “And then I wiggle my thumb like this…”

  • steverino247

    Does this make Tom Coburn a cuntblocker?

    [re=572827]Way Cool Larry[/re]: Yeah, but can she hype?

  • Tundra Grifter

    [re=572878]comicbookguy[/re]: WIN!

  • Tundra Grifter

    Great hardware. Buggy software.

  • Neilist

    You know, in that picture, you can almost see the alien lizard skin hidden beneath the Visitor’s latex makeup . . . .

    Guinea pig, anyone?

  • WTFover

    Am I the only one here who would do her in a heartbeat?

  • Eric Cheney

    Dana’s cute enough I guess. But the aluminum foil panties are a real turn off.

  • Aurelio

    [re=572735]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Dana honey, when you open your legs does a light come on?

    I doubt this, but I suspect the presence of teeth.

  • gurukalehuru

    [re=572735]SayItWithWookies[/re]: I’d do her.

  • Capitol Hillbilly

    [re=572747]Tommmcatt[/re]: She’s “such a cold-blooded liar, butter wouldn’t melt in (her) pussy.”

    Oh, wow, I thought the headline read “Tom cock blocks Dana Perino”. Actually, that would have made a better article.
