Dana Perino Zinger Brings Back Memories

My high school geometry teacher was a tough, intimidating lady. If memory serves me correct, she might have had a PhD, so combining the knowledge that such a degree confers and her icy stare not to mention the woman’s grand old dame-like demeanor, the description is apt.

She had no tolerance for tomfoolery especially when one of her prized students decided to use a discarded cupcake holder as a yarmulka. It was said that the dear woman “smoked” people when one of us got out of line with an illogical (proofs anyone?) line of questioning.

After such a thing occurred, some in the class would start sniffing the air as if something were burning, presumably it was the illogical student’s hide.

Though reticent to get too much into politics here at Lastrow, the following story reminded me of my geometry teacher,
“Obama Takes Issue With Bush Foreign Policy Speech”

President Bush made a speech to the Knesset in which he compared those who are willing to negotiate with terrorists to those that appeased Hitler. He called this type of attitude,

We have an obligation to call this what it is –- the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.

Presidential hopeful (no pun intended) Barack Obama chose to comment on the President’s statement, perhaps thinking that the President was describing him,

It is sad that President Bush would use a speech to the Knesset on the 6Oth anniversary of Israel’s independence to launch a false political attack. It is time to turn the page on eight years of policies that have strengthened Iran and failed to secure America or our ally Israel.

Whether or not President Bush was referencing the good Senator, I cannot say but when asked about it, White House spokesperson Dana Perino denied it any connection then added,

I understand that when you are running for office sometimes you think the world revolves around you. That is not always true and it is not true in this case

Zing! My geometry teacher would be so proud.
