USA dumbs down further...

Historians accept that the closest the US and the Soviet Union came to a nuclear war was over the stationing of Soviet missiles in Cuba in 1961. The 'Cuban Missile Crisis' has become a byword since in terms of what might have been and the art of international brinkmanship. Recently released papers reveal that nuclear war was even closer than most people feared.

You'd think then that the spokeperson for the President of the USA, given that he's frantically looking around for countries to declare war on, would be fully conversant with all the elements of this crisis.

You don't? Remember, this is GW Bush, you say?

Ok, point taken. But at a minimum, you imagine she'd have heard of it? You know, that we nearly blew up the world a few decades ago?

Afraid not. Dana Perino, the most powerful spokesperson in the world, who presents the official face of the US President's office, NEVER EVEN HEARD OF IT!

Now mind you, she was quickly able to make an excellent deduction about what it might be. The Washington Post quotes Perino "I was panicked a bit because I really don't know about . . . the Cuban Missile Crisis. It had to do with Cuba and missiles, I'm pretty sure."

Well done Dana. No flies on you girl. (She's lovely though, isn't she?)

At least Sherri Shepherd can't do too much damage.

Well she could work that out which I doubt Barry "Dumber than a sack of rocks" Soetero could do.

And, yes, he is as ugly as his African ancestry would suggest.
