"We Are There At The INVITATION Of The Iraqi Government:" The Biggest Joke I've Heard From A Whitehouse Spokesmodel

Dana Perino was in rare form and getting hit continually over the head by Helen Thomas' cast iron skillet. In the process, she tells the biggest joke I have ever heard from a Whitehouse Spokesmodel

Have a look:

Q Who is the enemy you speak of? Are these Iraqis?

MS. PERINO: We have different folks that we're considering the enemy. Obviously, al Qaeda is in Iraq, and they say that this is the battle. And then there are insurgents --

Q Are there Iraqis that you speak of, when you speak of the enemy?

MS. PERINO: I think they are definitely -- obviously, there are Iraqis who are engaging in criminal activity and in sectarian violence.

Q Criminal? To defend their own country?

MS. PERINO: I think when anyone is killing innocent men, women and children that they --

Q Against an invader and occupier?

MS. PERINO: Helen, we are there at the invitation of the Iraqi government, and we are there under the U.N. Security Council resolution.
We are there at the invitation of the Iraqi Government? Holy Shit. I don't know what to say about that. What say you?

Delivered with all the flourish of a true 'spokesmodel'. Well done Ms. Perino! **NOT**!
