Dana Perino: Global Warming Helps the Cold, Poor
Does Dana Perino even believe herself anymore? At today's White House press briefing, the comely mouthpiece was defending the Bush Administration against charges that they muzzled their own scientists' global warming reports. She seemed to sense the prying eyes of satirical bloggers when she let loose with the following howler:
...this is an issue where I'm sure lots of people would love to ridicule me when I say this, but it is true that many people die from cold-related deaths every winter.
OMG, so true! Don't be all defensive, Dana, we believe you! I bet totally, like, zillions of Eskimos die from the cold every day! It's good that there's no such thing as heat-related deaths!
